Gucci's Bamboo Handles are iconic and few bags have a history as recognisable as these.
It was 1947 when the first Gucci bamboo handles appeared. Following the rationing of World War II, bamboo was a material that could be more easily imported from Japan so the Gucci designers got to work.
The bags became an instant hit and began being carried around by celebrities and icons of the 50s and 60s.
We have some gorgeous examples of the Bamboo Bags in stock, we can see why they are still just as popular over 50 years later.
