RE: The tariff classification of a travel bag from China.

Dear Mr. Bayar:

In your letter dated July 24, 1998, on behalf of WOK Trading L.L.C., you requested a tariff classification ruling for a travel bag.

The exterior is composed of man-made textile fabric and plastic sheeting which is embossed to simulate textile materials. The lower half of the flap, side gussets and top zipper collar are of the man-made textile materials and the balance is of the plastic sheeting. The bag is essential character of the plastic sheeting. Your sample is being returned as your requested.

The applicable subheading for Style MS-1, the travel bag 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 or of textile materials. The rate of duty will be 20 percent ad valorem.
