Vintage Gucci Bamboo Top Handle Leather Bag


First created in 1947, the original Gucci Bamboo bag was a small constructed design crafted in pigskin with a curved bamboo handle and was a perfect example of the ability of Gucci’s craftsmen to invent clever (and stylish!) solutions to war-time rationing of materials. An instant hit, the Bamboo bag was worn by celebrities all over the world throughout the 1950’s and 60’s and is still being reinvented by Alessandro Michele in his current collection for the fashion house. This Vintage Gucci Bamboo top handle bag is a timeless classic and an iconic piece of the brands history.
