The bag has a single shoulder strap of imitation leather and a full width zipper closure. The interior is lined and has a small zippered wall pocket. The bag measures approximately 11” x 12” x 4”. The sample will be returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the shoulder bag will be 4202.22.4500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for handbags , whether or not with shoulder strap, including those without handle, with outer surface of textile materials, other. The rate of duty will be 6.5% ad valorem for 2002.

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 646-733-3041.
