This item is to be used as trimming in the construction of ladies handbags.

The applicable subheading for the leather strips will be 4205.00.8000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Other articles of leather or of composition leather: Other: Other. The rate of duty will be free.
