This iconic, leather handbag from Gucci has a handle made of bamboo.

Guccio Gucci opened its first shop in leather goods and small luggage in 1921. The first iconic handbag that Gucci made was the handbag with bamboo handle, which was introduced in 1947 and is characterized by the round bamboo handle. The round sides of the bag are inspired by the shape of a saddle, referring to the founder of Gucci who originally had a saddlery. The Bamboo Bag is still produced in contemporary designs.
