RE: The tariff classification of a clutch purse from Italy.

Dear Mr. Barlow:

In your letter dated April 18, 1997, on behalf of Hunting World, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling for a key case, wallets and a clutch purse.

You have submitted five samples with your request, identified as style numbers 317, 343, 341, 21 and 4, which consists of various style wallets, a key case and a clutch purse. Style 341 is a clutch purse which is manufactured of a plastics coated man-made textile material. The plastics constituent constitutes the exterior surface. The purse has a zippered closure which extends around three sides. The interior is triple gusseted and contains two open storage pockets, a center zippered pouch, a billfold and four credit card slots. Your sample is being returned as you requested.

The applicable subheading for Style 341, clutch purse, will be 4202.22.1500, HTS, which provides in part, for "Handbags", whether or not with shoulder strap, including those without handle, with outer surface of sheeting of plastic or of textile materials. The rate of duty will be 18.8 percent ad valorem.

Styles 317, 343, 21 and 4 require further analysis prior to Customs decision. Samples of the outer cover fabric have been submitted to the Customs laboratory for analysis and final action is pending further review.

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

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Kevin Gorman at 212-466-5893.
