Kangaroo leather bags on show at leather fair

Description

"Offenbach (DaD) - Large, soft, flat handbags are here to stay, to judge by exhibits at this year's Offenbach leather fair, Federal Republic of Germany. They are usually shouldered and feature mocha, malt and rum. Bordeaux, rose-black and black as fashionable colours. A light-weighted travelling set in canvas and plastic is seen (left), together with a fashionable pure cotton umbrella. On the right is the practical kangaroo bag, featuring a marsupial pocket containing a smaller bag for cash, papers and small personal necessities."
