RE: The tariff classification of a wine bottle holder from India.

Dear Mr. Baldwin:

In your letter dated October 4th, 1999, on behalf of Torre & Tagus Designs Ltd., you requested a classification ruling for a wine bottle holder from India.

The sample submitted with your request, UPC number 2640410245, is identified as "velvet wine bag". The item is a bag manufactured of 65% cotton and 35% viscose. The bag consists of two compartments, the main body and round bottom. The bag is sized to hold a single bottle of wine and measures 13" high and has a 4" diameter base. It is constructed of two layers of velveteen fabric. The bag will be imported with a separate cabled cord with tassels on each end. It is of a kind normally sold at retail as a bag for wine or spirits. It is substantially constructed.

The applicable subheading for the "velvet wine bag" will be 4202.92.6091, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for gun cases, holsters, and similar containersother, of cotton, other. The duty rate will be 6.8% ad valorem.

Items classifiable under HTS subheading 4202.92.6091 fall within textile category designation 369. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of India are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

The designated textile and apparel categories and their quota and visa status are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes. To obtain the most current information, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the U.S. Customs Service Textile Status Report, an internal issuance of the U.S. Customs Service, which is available at the Customs Web site at www.customs.gov. In addition, 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 and should also be verified at the time of shipment.

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 Kevin Gorman at 212-637-7091.
