RE: The tariff classification of a cosmetic purse from China.

Dear Ms. Russell:

In your letter dated June 5, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling for a cosmetic purse.

The sample submitted is identified as R9929G01. The item is a cosmetic purse designed to contain cosmetics and toiletries on a daily basis. It is manufactured with an exterior surface of 100 percent cotton with leather trim. The interior is textile lined and consists of a single compartment with no additional features. The top of the bag is secured by means of a zippered closure. The bag measures approximately 7 ½”(W) x 5”(H). Your sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the cosmetic purse will be 4202.12.4000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for trunks, suitcases, vanity cases and similar containers, with outer surface of textile materials, of vegetable fibers and not of pile or tufted construction, of cotton. The rate of duty will be 6.5 percent 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 646-733-3041.
