RE: The tariff classification of a tote bag from China.

Dear Mr. Brady:

In your letter dated December 26th, 2000, on behalf of Cute Stationery Supplies, you requested a classification ruling.

The sample submitted with your request is a tote bag that is similar to a shopping bag. The interior is unlined and consists of a single compartment with no additional features. The top opening is secured by a full-width zippered closure and two carry handles are permanently attached to the bag. The exterior surface is of made-up woven polyproplene (PP) strips having apparent width of under 5 millimeters each. The exterior of the fabric is covered with a plastic film.

The applicable subheading for the tote bag will be 4202.92.4500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for travel, sports, and similar bags, other. The duty rate will be 20% 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 Kevin Gorman at 212-637-7091.
