Dear Ms. Williams-Brinck:

In your letter dated March 18, 1990, on behalf of Skyway Luggage, Seattle, WA, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, style number 4517, is an executive organizer overnight/business case measuring 17 inches by 12 inches by 6 inches. The outer surface of the bag is composed of genuine leather, polyurethane imitation leather and nylon panels. Each component consists of approximately 371 square inches of leather, 212 square inches of polyurethane and 176 square inches of nylon fabric.

Your sample is being returned per your request.

The applicable subheading for the executive organizer overnight/business case will be 4202.91.0030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for travel, sports and similar bags with outer surface of leather. The rate of duty will be 6.8 percent ad valorem.
