Dear Ms. Clark:

In your letter dated December 21, 1998 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

A sample sea grass doctors bag was submitted and will be returned, as requested. The bag is composed of 98% sea grass material, which is a grass that grows in a rice field. It is rectangular, with two handles and two wooden button closures. The handles are attached by a 9" bamboo stick covered with sea grass. The bag measures 11"W x 9 1/2"H.

The applicable subheading for the sea grass doctors bag, will be 4602.10.2920, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for articles made up from plaiting materials; of vegetable materials; luggage, handbags and flatgoods, whether or not lined; other, handbags. The rate of duty will be 5.3 percent ad valorem.

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.
