There is an interior lining of satin covering an inner layer of polyfoam. The interior is designed with eight pockets to contain individual pieces of jewelry while traveling. The item is secured by means of a textile braided drawstring closure.

The applicable subheading for the jewelry pouch of plastic sheeting will be 4202.92.4500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for travel, sports and similar bags, with outer surface of sheeting of plastic, other. 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.
