Dear Mr. Norman:

In your undated letter, received in this office September 29, 2004, on behalf of Debbee Inc., you requested a classification ruling.

The sample submitted is identified as a “Flip N ZZZ”. No style number was submitted. The item consists of 5 pieces, which includes a zippered tote bag measuring approximately 19” x 12” x 7”, sleeping mask, knit blanket and a padded pillow in a drawstring storage bag. Each item is manufactured of 100% polyester man-made fiber textile material. You have stated that the items will be marketed and sold as a set to travelers so that they can sleep while traveling. However, for classification purposes the items are not considered to be a set. Each item will be separately classified. Your samples are being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the tote bag will be 4202.92.3031, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for travel, sports and similar bags, with outer surface of textile materials, other, of man-made fibers, other. The duty rate will be 17.6 percent ad valorem.

The duty rate will be 6 percent ad valorem.

The tote bag falls within textile category designation 670. The blanket falls within textile category designation 666. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of China are not currently subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.
