The prospective import is a bag with an outer surface composed of 100% woven polyester and 100% PVC interlining. The item measures approximately 6 1/2 inches in height x 5 1/2 inches in width. The bag has two small strap handles at the top with a ribbon closure. There is a decorative design on the front of the bag including stitching and sequins.

Please be advised that the sample will be returned to the above address.

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.
