Dear Ms. Bryant:

In your letter dated November 8, 2005 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The ruling was requested on a product identified as the “Paper Handbag w/Sequin Trim”, item # MB13838. A sample of the product was submitted. The sample is a shoulder sling bag approximately 16” wide x 12” long x 4” deep. The bag is made of folded paper strips woven together in a crochet style. The front of the bag is crocheted in an open weave flower pattern and is decorated with sequins. The inside of the bag is lined with polyester/cotton fabric. The lining includes a zippered pocket and an open cell phone pocket. The bag has a button closure and a shoulder strap, both also made of folded paper strips.

The applicable subheading for the woven paper strip handbag, item # MB13838, will be 4602.90.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated (HTSUSA), which provides for basketwork, wickerwork and other articles, made from plaiting materials, other.
