RE: The tariff classification of a handbag from China.

Dear Ms. Kniest:

In your letter dated July 26, 1993, received in this office August 16, 1993, you requested a tariff classification ruling for a handbag.

The sample submitted, style KS-9497, is a lady's handbag composed of a fabric base which has a plastic exterior coating. It is lined with textile material and measures approximately 7 3/4" x 6 1/2" with 2 1/2" gussets. The bag is designed with double self-fabric carrying handles, in addition to a removable shoulder strap. The shoulder strap is attached by means of metal dog leash- type fasteners. The handbag is secured by means of a flap with a metal snap closure. Your sample is being returned as you requested.
The applicable subheading for Style KS-
9497, the lady's handbag of plastic sheeting, will be 4202.22.1500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for handbags, whether or not with shoulder strap, including those without handle, with outer surface of sheeting of plastic. The duty rate will be 20 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
