Vintage 1985 Taormina SICILY COFFA Bag
Vintage Taormina, Sicily Coffa Bag
Bought in 1985 in the town of Taormina, Sicily where we noticed fashionable women carrying this type of bag around town and pool-side. I had to have one. Deciding which color to select was the most difficult.
First of all, a coffa bag is one in which Sicilians carry their produce. That was the original intent for this bag made of Sicilian dwarf palm. The bags that are not strictly utilitarian are lavishly embellished, with , then mirrors, colorful pompons, metal lion-heads, ribbons, and more. No doubt a far cry from the original coffa bag this bag (and others like it the are still produced to date) much more elaborate. Last photo is Dolce Gabbana's take on the Sicily coffa bag
Lined in buttercup yellow felt.
The bag has a top loop closure.
It's a darling vintage bag. These bags you can buy today, albeit new at well over seven hundred Dollars. Each bag is hand-made. No two bags are alike.
The bag I am offering here is vintage. The lining is not pristine. In very good condition.
