This beautiful bag was created from an authentic Louis Vuitton Saint Tropez America's Cup Drawstring Noe Bucket.  All are individually numbered, this one being 3158! I've changed it a bit to make it more functional!

This bag is a gorgeous cayenne color, and will be perfect for fall!! The canvas is in great condition, but there is one small stain on the back that I couldn't get out.  The vachetta base had seen better days, so I've dyed it a darker brown and conditioned it.  There is some cracking that is barely noticeable now (see pics).  I removed several inches from the top of the bag, knocking it down from about 17" to 9" and then hand braided the top in a rich brown leather that now matches the vachetta. I added brass eyelets that hold the brass O-rings and a rope-like brass chain (kind of nautical, right??!!).  The 6-strand brown braided leather strap is the perfect addition to this bag, making it an awesome crossbody!

This is a big bag that measures 11″ W x 9″ H x 7″ D.  The large original interior zippered pocket has been sewn back in.  I didn't add a magnetic button snap, but can do that easily if you desire, just let me know after purchase!

For a video review of this bag, please see my IG/FB stories, or the highlight bubble called "The Albatross."

Please note:  These are vintage bags, and will show some wear.  I try to call out everything, but please make sure to look at the pictures!!
