RE: The tariff classification of a garden tote and glove from India.

Dear Ms. Gregory:

In your letter dated October 6, 1997, you requested a classification ruling for a garden tote and glove.

You have submitted two samples with your request, no style numbers indicated. The samples submitted consist of a double handle, open top tote bag manufactured of 100 percent cotton canvas fabric. The interior is designed with six interior pockets to contain tools and other garden supplies. Inside the bag is a is a woven 100 percent cotton clute cut gardening glove with sewn-on ribbed knit cuff. The bag measures approximately 13"(H) x 16 1/2"(W) with 6 1/2 gussets.

You have requested the proper classification for each item if imported separately and/or together as a unit. The importation of the bag together with the glove(s) constitutes neither a GRI-3(b) set nor a composite. Therefore whether imported together or separately each item will stand on its own merit.

The applicable subheading for the garden tote of 100 percent cotton canvas material will be 4202.92.6090, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for trunks, suitcases...; traveling bags..., tool bags and similar containers, with outer surface of textile materials, other, of cotton, other. The duty rate will be 6.9 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for the glove will be 6216.00.3800, HTS, which provides for gloves, mittens and mitts: other: of cotton: without fourchettes. The duty rate will be 24.6 percent ad valorem.

The tote bag falls within textile category designation 369. The glove falls within textile category designation 331. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of India are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

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).

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.
