1970's Char Handpainted Whipstitched Leather Bohemian Hippie Shoulder Bag Purse


Masterfully-cut 1970's Char designer messenger bag that will add the perfect "hippie chic" vibe to any outfit. The Char company from Mexico was known for creating wearable art and each piece would have been entirely hand done. The entire purse is whipstitched, with hand-applied leather of complementary hues. I adore the breathtaking hand-painted scenic floral designs and suede novelty-trees. Complete with a wide shoulder-strap and inner pocket. This purse has that worked in patina that collectors desire and the combination of workmanship is marvelous! Measurements Width:11 inches Length:10 inches Total Strap Length:35 inches This Char designer purse is in excellent condition with no rips, discoloration or holes. The bag is unlined and left in its natural suede state on the inside. Amazing piece of fashion history!
