The interior features a zippered compartment, a permanently affixed mirror, a detachable coin purse a clear vue cosmetic pouch, and two elastic loops to contain a hair brush etc., credit card slots, and plastic inserts to contain other personal identification. The item measures approximately 8 inches in height by 5 inches in width with 1 3/4 inch gussets. The item is larger than an average wallet. There is an exterior compartment designed to contain other small personal effects. Your sample is being returned as you requested.

The applicable subheading for Style RF-OR-008, the "Macro Bag" of vinyl plastic, 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.
