Welcome to the BTH club Both fabulous bags you have there, equal congrats on both. Both are very special

I have a couple of questions

Do you use them often?

And what materials and colours are the inside?

Hi, yes i use small leather more but lg. python is one of the most amazing colors i have seen in snake...these pics dont do justice!!!! Insides are a cotton like kahki color with a side pocket. Strap is useful for smaller leather top handle. Also both bamboos are different colored, nice detail. I have been trying to get around photographing them with a real camera versus ipod..thanku for your comments.

Thank you so much for the invite Papertiger :)

My recent purchase : may I say I love vintage and love bamboo ! Still in search of 60's or 70's bag but here is this one we think from very early 90's I do love the red interior.

Thanks tzuber, they are both staggeringly beautiful, you are so lucky to have not one, but two such special examples

This is a lovely bag too and a beautiful piece of bamboo work. I also have an honouree bamboo bag, the Bamboo Woven Shopper, suede and patent North/South basket from the 1990s, ('97?). All I need now is the Bamboo handle brief case and steel my Mom's vintage Diana (same year as the shopper I think) and I will have a nice set .

I'd love to see pics of your collection! Do you have them posted on TPF anywhere? I'm officially a Gucci addict ! My small collection consist of medium Pelham -two pairs of sunnies ( one special I bought while in London at harrods) and the two vintage bags I posted recently. I entertained getting a new LV but couldn't find anything I just loved and there are so many Gucci I just so I am slowly adding to my collection

Hi, I am very new to this forum and I just ordered my First ever designer bag which was Gucci New Bamboo Medium Flap Bag (winter grey colour), it took me a while to decide which one should i go in for and after all the research I decided to pick this one, keeping my fingers crossed hoping its a nice colour since its very difficult to make out on the website. Its yet to arrive and I am on pins and needles

Does anyone have this bag and can someone tell me what is a winter leaf colour?

Cheers!

Welcome bagwathi

Sounds scrumptious

I dont have this colour but the Winter Leaf but have seen it in a store, it is a metallic bronzed-green, possibly a shade lighter than the photo you posted. You could wear it easily as a neutral with blacks, browns and greys (perhaps not so easily with some blues) and a med in a metallic means it could be good for the evening as well as day. I think you will love it, please photos when you get it as I think you will be the first to have this colour in a out BTH club.

You will see my 2 large BTHs in the this thread and other Guccis dotted around the sub-forum but I don't have an official family photo (too many for one photo ) or my own collection thread.

Looking forward to it.

BTW, I was thinking it looked lighter in the photo and darker IRL and then wrote it incorrectly in my last post. IMO it looks a little darker IRL not lighter. Sorry about that

Got mine today and love it! It's more of a bronze color, papertiger is right that it's darker irl.
