In your letter dated June 29, 1995, you requested a tariff classification ruling, on behalf of Avon Products, Inc., New York, New York.

The article to be imported is the Sewing Essentials Kit - PP 136818. The sample which you submitted is described as a sewing kit imported and sold within a fitted textile fabric case measuring approximately 8 1/2 inches in length by approximately 6 inches in width (in the opened position). The contents of the sewing kit include a pair of small metal scissors with plastic handles; a metal sewing needle; a measuring tape; a plastic thimble; metal safety pins; and various spools of sewing thread; in addition, the sewing set contains a small plastic box with a needle threader, additional threads, a small safety pin, a needle, and a button. The textile fabric case has various elasticized bands for containing and organizing the contents, and opens and closes by means of textile straps. The sample you submitted is being returned to you, as you requested.

The applicable subheading for the Sewing Essentials Kit - PP 136818 - will be 9605.00.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for travel sets for personal toilet, sewing or shoe or clothes cleaning.....
