RE: The tariff classification of a shoulder bag from China.

Dear Ms. Cheung:

In your letter dated August 18, 1995, you requested a tariff classification ruling for a shoulder tote bag..

The sample submitted, style SE372-4, is a shoulder tote bag which is manufactured of flat paper strips. The paper strips have not been twisted or spun into a paper yarn. The bag measures approximately 16 inches high by 14.5 inches wide with an 8 inch diameter. It is of a kind similar to the items described as "travel, sport and similar bags".
