RE: The tariff classification of a crocheted handbag made of folded paper strips from China

Dear Mr. Spano:

In your letter dated November 1, 1999, on behalf of the importer, Candies Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The ruling was requested on a paper crocheted handbag, style number 24564. A sample bag was submitted. It is a shoulder strap bag approximately 9-1/2 inches wide by 10 inches high by 1 inch deep. It is made of folded strips of paper interwoven in a crochet style and in a design of flowers in panels. The inside of the bag is fully lined with a textile fabric. The bag has a top zipper closure, a flip over lid and an inside pocket.

The applicable subheading for the crocheted handbag made of paper strips will be 4602.90.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated (HTSUSA), which provides for articles of plaiting materials, other than of vegetable materials. The rate of duty will be 3.5 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. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Paul Garretto at 212-637-7009.
