  • Plain weave fabrics, of unbleached yarns, in which predominate by weight the viscose rayon staple fibres, mixed with horsehair and polyester staple fibres in the weft, and cotton fibres in the warp, of a weight not exceeding 225 g/m2

This fabric is currently dutiable at 14% under the Most Favoured Nation (MFN) tariff treatment under tariff item 5516.91.99.
