A classic vintage Gucci Boston bag made from brown leather with the iconic Gucci bamboo handles.

Gucci is well known for creating the most covetable it-bags season after season but it’s the more demure Gucci bamboo, worn by the likes of Elizabeth Taylor, Ingrid Bergman and Lady Diana that is considered as one of the most iconic handbags of all time. Also called the 0633, the Bamboo top handle bag stems from the 1940’s when the leather shortage as an aftermath of the war left many fashion houses scratching their heads over resources. To save on materials such as leather, Gucci came up with the brilliant idea to incorporate bamboo into their handbags. This happened to be a particularly good choice due to the fact that bamboo was extremely durable and easily imported from Japan during that time.

The shoulder strap is detachable. The drop of the strap is 51cm and can be worn on the shoulder as well as across the body.

This bag is in good vintage condition with some signs of wear. There are some slight marks on the leather, which we have photographed. Inside the bag is immaculate.
