Vintage Gucci Tote Bag with Bamboo Handles - Beige GG Canvas

Sold out
Free Shipping in the UK & Europe.

A stunning vintage Gucci shoulder bag made from the iconic GG beige canvas with tan brown leather trim and the iconic 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. 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.

Inside the bag is lined with a brown cotton lining with internal zipped pockets for your valuables.

This bag is in fair vintage condition with some marks to the canvas, leather parts and base.

  • Height: 32cm 
  • Width: 29cm
