You have submitted three samples of handbags with your request, identified as styles V-4132A, V-4135A and V-4133A. Each bag is manufactured of plastic sheeting material and a partial front panel of plaiting material. The bags are considered to be essential character of the plastic material. Each bag is carried by means of a shoulder strap and/or double carrying handles.

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.
