This is a beautiful British Tan Suede Bonnie Cashin for Meyers shoulder bag. It was designed by Cashin for Meyers sometime between 1964-1968. See Cashin, Bonnie http://vintagefashionguild.org/label-resource/cashin-bonnie/

The bag has 3 separate compartments lined with the Cashin red and blue striped lining. The middle compartment also contains a zippered pocket for storing your phone or similar items. The Bonnie Cashin logo is sewn inside the middle compartment. The bag also comes with an adjustable leather shoulder strap.

Dimensions:

Length: 11 inches

Height: 8 inches

Width: 2 inches expandable to 4 inches

Strap Drop: 12 inches


Condition:

This bag is in very good condition. There are no rips, tears or holes in the bag. The hardware works as intended. The bag is clean and the bag has very few scratches. This bag would have been characterized as in excellent condition if it wasn't for the small bald spot on one corner of the bag. ( see collage photo) The bald spot is not a rip, tear or hole. It is simply a spot where the suede was worn down to bald leather and needs to be restored. The restoration process involves brushing the bald spot until the suede is raised up back to its former height. This is a simple fix for a bag rehab person with experience. Because of the value of the bag I have decided not to try the rehab on my own until gaining further experience.


Significance of Bonnie Cashin designed bags.

Those who are familiar with Vintage Coach leather bags know Coach bags actually designed by Bonnie Cashin with her logo and signature striped lining are among the most sought after and collected vintage Coach bags. Even the Coach Company has a special Bonnie Cashin Collection. [ See "Spotlight: A Personal Tour of The Coach Archive in New York City with Jed Winokur" http://www.sacsmagnifiques.com/2014/03/spotlight-personal-tour-of-coach.html ] This practice has extended to Meyers Bags designed by Bonnie Cashin.
