The panel is folded and sewn closed at the sides. The open side is hemmed and features a drawstring-braided cord. The bags measure approximately 14” x 10,” 14-3/4” x 15-3/8,” and 6-1/2” x 4.”

The applicable subheading for the bags will be 6307.90.9889, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other made up articles . . . Other. The rate of duty will be 7 percent ad valorem.

Articles classifiable under subheading 6307.90.9889, HTS, which are products of India are currently entitled to duty free treatment under the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) upon compliance with all applicable regulations.
