I'm starting this thread in response to flipchick's suggestion

As there are at least 5 of us already let's start a Bamboo Top-Handle club

You may belong to the BTH club if you have a large, med, small, new, old or vintage bamboo top handle, any related extended family member (bamboo handle) ior even if you just like the bag

Any info or photos related to the bag would be greatly appreciated

I will start with my treasured new darling

Large (36 cm) Stone Leather Bamboo Top-Handle



With matching mirror case and engraved mirror

Gorgeous bag papertiger...

Checked one out at the Gucci store and for some reason I just loved the mirror. Normally it would not be a big deal but it was so heavy and lovely..

Such gorgeous bamboo top-handle bags, ladies!! You're all making want to forget about the beige flap bag and get a top-handle bag instead I'm going to have to definitely check out the top-handle bags the next time that I visit my local Gucci boutique.


GhstDreamer, I had no idea that one could fit so many things in the large sized top handle bag I really do hope that you're able to have your initials put onto your bag.

Oh my word, my eyes are on stalks, seeing some of the bags together I can see why this bag has been giong strong for 63 years.

GhstDreamer and PattyP thank you for your pictures, both your bags are out-of -this-world beautiful.

I am taking my Stone darling to be monogrammed today and I will let you all know how I get on

Thank you COACH ADDICT. I think a Bamboo Top Handle would fit very nicely in your collection

I'm with you there flip

Borrowed from some of the Hermes threads; maybe we could also have Bamboo Top Handle days when we all take our bags out and take pics
