The bag body is of a plaiting material, however, the body is mainly covered with textile materials of 100% jute. You have stated that the sample submitted represents several styles including KO2-448A, KO2-448C and KO2-448D. You have also stated that although each style’s jute fabric is a different color, they are all the same size, construction and material content. The instant sample has a textile lining, measures approximately 17.5” x 7.5” x 11” and features a button loop closure, double shoulder straps, one inside zipper pocket and one open pocket for cell phone, etc. Your sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the handbag will be 4202.22.6000, 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, of vegetable fibers, other.
