Timeless style unsurpassed
Tanned 80’s skin and what sits above?
A bamboo crescent seared with love."


Vintage Bamboo leather bag, 1980s

This Bamboo bag was first produced in the late 1980s with the code 0633. The small structured shape is crafted in smooth light brown leather and is complemented by a natural bamboo handle and closure. Embossed in gold in the interior is 'Made in Italy by Gucci.' This handbag was selected by the Creative Director and Vault archivists for its particularity, character and exceptional vintage condition, and it was reconditioned to the highest standard by in-house artisans. It has been given the number 38 | 21 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.

The Story

Elements from the world of horses and horseback riding have always been woven into Gucci's heritage, often so subtle as to not be immediately noticed. Inspired by the shape of a side saddle, this bag's leather was carefully selected and then modeled to take on the same form. Ethereal marks from past years decorate the surface of the leather, hinting at the bag's deeper story.

As soon as you hold a piece of the Vault, you begin to write a new chapter of its story—instituting a relationship, rather than an ownership, that will forever connect one owner to the next. As the years accumulate, every mark or crease is collected onto the surface, continuously altering the item’s appearance and making it completely unique. Imperfections should be expected and treasured as the journey continues for this piece.
