Great vintage faux leather bag from the 70s.
Dark brown, green inside. Short handle only.
Closes with 1 metal buckle.
2 comparments inside.
Classy vintage accessory!

Faux leather was created in the early years of the twentieth century, but became a real fashion hit on the 1960s due new production techniques developed. It was cheaper than real leather, better to work with and no animal products in its making.

Moments from Fashion History – Late Victorian Evening and Bridal Gowns

The gowns of the 1880s were almost always made in two colours of material. Vivid colours such as deep red, peacock blue, bright apple green, royal blue, purple, mandarin, sea green were used alone, in combination, or in tartan fabrics. Some colour combinations were very strange. At night ladies evening dresses were in softer hues and although they were extravagantly trimmed in contrast fabrics and very décolleté, they followed the general line of fashion.

Gradually the skirt widened and flared as the fullness of the bustle began to fall into pleats down the garment back eventually disappearing to nothing. As before the bustle foundation softened until only a small pad was left by 1893. The armour like hour glass figure soon developed into the S-Bend shape corset which set the Edwardian Corsetry silhouette until 1907-8.
