Dear Mr. Mauna:

In your letter dated April 21, 2004, on behalf of Michelle Holmes, you requested a classification ruling for a bottle bag and a shopping bag.

Item 338158 is a double handle, open top shopping bag designed to contain personal effects and accessories on a daily basis. It is wholly made-up of polypropylene non-woven man-made fiber textile material. It measures approximately 12”(H) x 12”(W) x8 ½”(D).

Your samples are being returned as requested.
