The item’s lid is covered by plastic sheeting and is secured by a three-sided zippered enclosure. The interior side of the lid features a mirror. The essential character is imparted by the man-made textile material.

The rate of duty will be 17.8 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.
