Dear Ms. Mills:

In your letter dated November 1, 2000, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The box is not specially constructed to hold any particular item and do not contain any compartments. It measures approximately 6-1/2” x 6-1/2” x 3-1/2”.

The vinyl tote bag is a double handle, zippered top bag. The bottom and two sides are made of clear plastic sheeting materials and the other two sides are constructed of a metal coated mesh panel. The carry handles are made of web fabric. Printed on the metal coated panels are the letters “AZ,” shown inside a design, and the printed words “Arizona Jean Co.”

The applicable subheading for the box will be 6307.90.9989, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other made up articles . . . Other. The duty rate will be 7 percent ad valorem.

We are returning any related samples, exhibits, etc. If you decide to resubmit your request, please include all of the material that we have returned to you.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
