Dear Ms. Richardson:

In your letter dated May 22nd, 2003 you requested a tariff classification ruling. The request is on behalf of Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

The sample submitted, identified as Item #F13-003B “Summer Tote” bag, is a combination of two bags, one nested within the other. The larger bag, measuring approximately 17 ½”W x 15”H x 4 ½”D, is an open bag constructed of PVC sheeting and features matching webbed fabric shoulder straps. The inside bag measures approximately 18 ½”W x 14 ½”H x 4 ½”D, and is constructed with an exterior surface of 100 percent cotton terrycloth material. The lined open bag features two webbed fabric carrying straps and is fastened to the larger, PVC bag with snap tabs. You indicate that the item is to be imported, packaged ready for retail sale as a unit. The sample will be returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for item F13-003B, 2 piece tote bag set, will be 4202.92.4500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for travel, sports, and similar bags, with outer surface of sheeting of plastic or of textile materials, other. The rate of duty will be 20 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
