This very large & stylish 1980's shoulder/cross-body bag by Carlos Falchi, would make the perfect travel bag; it's gorgeous and very sturdy. Better yet it has never been used; it still retains the original tag regarding the skins and leather. On the inside, it is stamped: Calfskins Made in Brasil. The purse features the Carlos Falchi label along with a Made in the U.S.A. tag; both are sewn onto the zippered pocket. There is no lining nor was there ever one; the natural calf skin is on the inside.
It's done in brown and creamy white calf hair and features a flap closure with a decorative silver buckle and 2" wide brown leather strap. There is a 2" wide brown leather shoulder strap, a drawstring at the opening (which can be loosened to make the bag wider) and an interior zippered pocket, which measures 6 ½" deep X 7" long . The shoulder strap has a 19-20" drop.
This bag is in never used condition, with only a few scuffs on the shoulder strap & a few stains underneath the shoulder strap, which may be original to the bag & caused by the tanning/finishing of the leather. The calf fur on each side is not as flat as the rest of the purse, but this is not a flaw and is to be expected from calf fur. The Carlos Falchi tag reads: "The skins and leather used in the manufacture of this item are those of plantation and farm bred reptiles and animals. Imperfections and irregularities are caused by natural conditions and quite often enhance the natural beauty of the skin".
The approximate dimensions are: Length: 29" along the bottom & 12" along the opening/Height: 14"/Depth: 6"
This is a truly fabulous and very chic vintage Falchi bag/travel bag. You will no doubt get many compliments when you wear it.
