Incredible bronze woven leather Hobo- style bag, circa late 1970's/ early 1980's.
Zip top closure, fully lined in brown velveteen.
Zippered pocket on the inner wall, "genuine leather, made in Uruguay" gold embossed leather tab just below the zipper.
Very reminiscent of Bottega Veneta designs- narrow strips of leather are woven together on the diagonalcreating the front, back and bottom panels.
Smooth leather overlay at the top corners and along the center bottom.
Soft sided and bottomed, this will take the shape of its contents.

Wider leather strap connects to the narrow loops on each of the top corners- can be knotted singly or doubled for a shorter drop, if desired.

A wonderful size and shape for everyday use- metallics are perfect to glam up casual Summer clothing.
Very slight scuffing/ rubbing to the piping along the top corners/ edges, otherwise in excellent vintage condition, only minor signs of wear/use, super clean inside and out.
A killer retro bag!

15.5" across the top
7.5" high (at center)
2.5" deep (at bottom)
the strap is 1.5" wide
when doubled, approximately 14" length or 7" drop- the top curve of the bag easily allows shoulder carrying at this shoter length
when tied singly, approximately 26" in length or 13" drop (can be tied higher on the strap for a shorter drop length)
