|For sale is a vintage Jana brand Emilio Pucci signed bag with some flaws, and a strange shape. Someone creative could probably repurpose this bag into a nicer shape.
The label in the bag states: Made in Italy exclusively for Jana. The fabric has the Emilio signature on it, in several spots. There is no label stating the fiber content of the bag, but is appears to be made out of raw silk. I haven’t been able to find much information on this brand, but was told that Jana made bags for Pucci in the 70’s.
The style of this bag is unusual. The style of this bag most likely will not have universal appeal.
This bag is a good size. It measures approximately 11 inches tall, and approximately 16 inches wide. The bag closes with a metal snap. This bag is an unusual shape. The bag has foam inside it. The bag has foam, and what appears to be wire shaping in the handles. There is foam inside the lining of the bag, evidently to shape the bag. This bag is lightweight.
The bag has flaws, so please take note of the following. The bag has stains on it. There are stains on one of the bottom sides. The stains look like surface stains, and as if they could possibly be dried mud. There are also a few small dark stains on the bag. One is on other side of the bag from the mud stains, and is below one of the signatures. The handles have dirt on them. Please see the listing photos for visuals on the dirty areas of the bag. The bag has foam inside it. I think the foam in the bag might mean that this bag will need to be spot cleaned. However, I have heard that the colors in this type of Pucci fabric bleed, so please keep this in mind.
The lining in the bag looks like it is hand sewn to the inside rim of the bag. At one side of the bag there are a few stitches missing, so this area could use a few stitches. At each side of the bag, there is an area where the lining has a space, and it is folded down into the bag, but not sewn. This looks intentional, to make the lining fit to the shape of the bag. The zipper pull on the inside pocket is broken, as can be seen in the listing photgraph.
Please be aware that this bag has dirty areas on the outside fabric, and please do not bid if this is a concern.
