I see this beautifully hand tooled leather bag as unisex. You will have to decide for yourself. Whatever you decide, this bag is in fine vintage condition with tight seams and an easy sliding zipper. With occasional conditioning, the bag will remain beautiful and usable for years to come.

The design of the clutch is very American "Arts and Crafts Movement." However, I believe the clutch actually dates to the 1950's. After looking at the construction of the bag, I am guessing that it was NOT a camp craft project - though we have many overnight camps in our area of New England where it might have been made. For example, the seams are double wrapped with leather strips; the leather handle is firmly attached into the side panel and the zipper is secured by all around machine stitching.

Please enlarge the first two photos to appreciate the fine craftsmanship of the tooling.
