Dear Mr. Foster:

In your letter dated February 15, 2008 you requested a tariff classification ruling. The sample which you submitted is being returned as requested.

The sample submitted is identified as style B21098. It is a handbag constructed with an outer surface of 100% leather. The bag is designed and sized to contain money, keys, and small accessories that are carried on a daily basis.
