This purse is sewn from the hide of the ugly and reclusive Nauga, a creature that sheds its skin effortlessly and even willingly. You can still see the texture of his pores, which naturally form a curious geometric pattern.

Of course, I'm only joking. The Naugahyde company used a similar strategy (humor, they called it) in the '60s and '70s to market their products. You can still buy Nauga creatures; some collect them. Fellow seller Mascara Jones has a pair:

Most folks prefer the term "pleather" these days. This handsome tote is a bit of a mystery in terms of its brand; I have the sister of this fella in black, and it also has no tag besides the logo on the front. C and V are the letters I see, but my general life "expertise" conjures no leads, and my research yielded zilch. Perhaps someone could tell me what company made these?

The bag features a buckled shoulder strap that attaches at a little over two feet. The bag itself measures about 9 1/2" tall and about 12" long. There are two zippered sections, with one hidden zippered pocket in the back segment, and a green and red ribbon that runs down the front panel. The lining is black. Comfortable to carry, flexible, and roomy, in good vintage condition with minor wear on the zipper, buckle, and front studs. Being a proud parent of one myself, I can say it's just a peach of a bag.
