Dear Ms. Hampson:

In your letter dated October 24th, 2002 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample submitted, identified as Item #BA/1285/36/00, the “Lilac Multi Sequin Flower Basket”, is a small handbag measuring approximately 5 ½”W x 6”H x 1 ¾”D. Constructed of 100 percent straw, its outer surface is wholly covered with plastic beads and spangles. The bag is unlined and features twin carrying straps. The sample will be returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the handbag will be 3926.90.3300, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other articles of plasticsbeads, bugles, and spangles, not strung (except temporarily) and not set; articles thereof, not elsewhere specified or included: handbags. The rate of duty will be 6.5 percent ad valorem.

Articles classifiable under subheading 3926.90.3300, HTS, which are products of Indonesia are currently entitled to duty free treatment under the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) upon compliance with all applicable regulations.

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.
