Further comments: Gorgeous GUCCI vintage Patent Leather BAMBOO BAG in Black color! The bag features a looping bamboo top handle, a frontal flap, brass hardware and a bamboo turn lock. This is an iconic model created by GUCCi artisanals in 1947. The usage of bamboo might have been a way to reduce the amount of leather to make the bag, as a result of the continuing wartime shortages. It is thought that this design was based on a bag Aldo Gucci had brought back to Florence from a trip to London. It was a departure from all previous Gucci handbags as it was made of rigid leather, whereas before it Gucci bags were relatively unstructured and soft-sided. The handle was shaped by holding the bamboo over a flame, and was shaped by hand. GUCCI continued to make the BAMBOO BAG, with slight modifications, for years.
