In your letter dated August 12, 2005, you requested a tariff classification ruling for a handbag and zippered tote bag.

You have submitted two samples with your request identified as items 50310 “Tri-Colored Straw Purse w/Pink Beads” and 50320 “Multi-Paned Straw Purse w/Blue Daisies”.

The handbag measures approximately 14 ½”(W) x 10 ½”(H) and the tote bag measures approximately 17 ½”(W) x 13”(H) with a 5” base. The top of each bag is secured by means of textile zippered closure.

The applicable subheading for item 50310, the handbag, will be 4202.22.8070, 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, other of paper yarn.
