This Bamboo bag was first produced in the early 1990s. 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 'Gucci Made in Italy'. Pink, orange, blue and green stripes have been hand-painted onto the original design, reviving it into a one-of-a-kind item. 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 132 | 21 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.
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.
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 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.
