RE: The tariff classification of Boxes and lipstick holders from China.

Dear Mr. Hom:

In your letter dated April 15, 1996, on behalf of Kowling Company, Kowloon, Hong Kong, you requested a classification ruling.

The boxes are made of a cardboard base covered externally and internally with woven textile fabric. The lids are detached. The exterior edges of the boxes and the exterior edge of the tops of the lids are decorated with twisted cord. The lids are also decorated with a textile flower and imitation pearls. The interior bottom of the boxes and the exterior tops of the lids are foam padded. There are no compartments in the boxes. The boxes measures approximately 5 5/16" x 3 1/2" x 2 1/4", 4 1/16" x 5 1/4" x 2 1/4", and 4 13/16" x 4 13/16" x 2 1/4", respectively.

The samples are being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for style number DB 1566 will be 6307.90.9989, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other made up articles...Other. The duty rate will be 7 percent ad valorem.

The designated textile and apparel categories may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected. Part categories are the result of international bilateral agreements which are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes. To obtain the most current information available, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the Status Report on Current Import Quotas (Restraint Levels), an internal issuance of the U.S. Customs Service, which is available for inspection at your local Customs office.

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