Dear Mr. Houchen:

In your letter dated March 6, 2002, on behalf of Lincoln Logistics, you requested a tariff classification ruling for a child’s handbag and backpack.

The interior is textile lined with no additional features. It measures approximately 12”(W) x 12”(H). It is secured by means of a top drawstring closure with a cord lock fastener.
