First created in 1947, the original Gucci Bamboo bag was a small constructed handbag crafted in pigskin with a curved bamboo handle, the design became an iconic example of the acumen of Gucci's craftsmen who were pushed to invent clever solutions to war-time rationing of materials. Bamboo cane, which could still be imported from Japan, was heated and bent into a semi-circle, and affixed as a decorative handle on the pebbled pigskin body. The design, innovative as well as stylistically distinctive, was an instant hit. Throughout the 1950s and 60s, the Gucci Bamboo bag was worn by countless international celebrities, sealing its future fate as one of Gucci's most beloved and successful handbag creations.
