Etienne Aigner (New York, USA) Leather and Tan Nylon Small Crossbody Satchel

$ 25.00

A khaki and nylon cross-body style satchel with brown leather trim and strap from Etienne Aigner.  The outside of the bag has a small open pocket on the front accessed by a little leather flap affixed with the iconic horseshoe logo and the bottom is lined with leather.  A plastic zipper opens the bag to reveal an open central compartment flanked by a small open pocket and zipper pocket.  The bag measures 7 1/2" across, 2 3/4" deep, and 6" tall with an additional 23" in height when factoring in the adjustable shoulder strap drop.  The bag has an internal depth of 6".  The inside of the bag has a sewed-in leather "Etienne Aigner" medallion and the condition of the bag is very good, with nearly no signs of use other than barely noticeable marks on the back of the nylon portion of the bag. 

Etienne Aigner of New York

From Wilipedia:  Etienne Aigner was born in Hungary in 1904.  First a bookbinder, he started creating high-end leather goods such as handbags and belts for boutiques in Paris.  In 1950, after apprenticing with Christian Dior and Cristobal Balenciaga, he came to New York to expand his business.  The brand's signature color is called "Antic Red" and the Aigner logo is the letter "A" shaped into a horseshoe.  "AIGNER gave its products a rural, countrystyle feel. There was always a sense of the racecourse, a feeling of being by the fireside. A phenomenon that can still be felt today" (quote source:  www.aignermunich.com).  Mr. Aigner died in New York City in 2000 at the age of 96.
