    Gucci Matte Chocolate Crocodile, Suede & Bamboo Runway Duffle Bag
    Excellent Condition
    17" Width x 21" Height x 10" Depth
    This is an incredibly rare runway bag. This duffle bag is rich with simplicity. When Gucci began in the 1920's the brand specialized in making and selling well-crafted travel bags and trunks with the finest Italian leather. This overnight bag is a nod to the company's history but takes the travel bag to a new level through impeccable design. The base of this bag is made of very rare dark crocodile skin. Exotics skins are hard to come by in Gucci travel accessories. The upper half of the bag is made of soft though durable light suede. The contrast of the tough crocodile skin and the gentle suede makes this bag so interesting. The bag is quite literally topped off with a bamboo top handle, an icon of the brand. Done with a braided leather and crocodile shoulder strap and a bamboo handle, the body of this unique bag is done in suede and matte crocodile. The spacious interior is done in canvas and there is one inner zip pocket.

    This bag is in Excellent Condition. There are very faint scratches throughout the interior and exterior.
