When Chanel showed a crocheted raffia handbag with a bamboo handle back in the day, a new trend in casual accessories fashioned of natural and rustic materials caught fire, perfect for vacationing in the tropics, embarking on an exotic cruise ~ or just looking as if you'd just returned from one.
New, never used, this roomy tote is made of raffia dyed a bright cheerful yellow with a near-gloss right-reflecting quality, crocheted, with bamboo handle securely attached to the bag's frame. Brass-tone fittings include a secure kisslock closure & 4 "feet" at the bottom, enabling the tote to stand on its own. The bag is capacious, wide and deep, with a zippered compartment inside, with a small "Made in Japan" label sewn in. Yellow cloth (probably cotton) lining is in new, original unused condition.
Details: Rated "Near Mint." Appears never used. Condition is rated "near mint" as opposed to "mint" because the exterior of the bag shows 3 very small minor reddish spots to the raffia which don't appear to be stains but a result of fading/aging of the raffia dye & original, barely noticeable.
