RE: The tariff classification of handbags from China.

Dear Ms. Kobs:

In your letter dated September 30th, 2000 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Style LM3003A measures approximately 7 1/2" x 2 3/4" x 6 1/4". The interior is lined and is secured by a full-width zippered closure. Two carry handles and a detachable shoulder strap are incorporated on the bag and there is an open pocket on the front and rear exterior. Style LM3003B measures approximately 7 1/4" x 2 3/4" x 6 1/4". The interior of the bag is lined and is secured by a front flap with a center snap closure. There is an open pocket on the front and rear exterior. The front flap covers the pocket on the front and a shoulder strap is permanently attached to the bag.
