Straw bags were particularly popular in both France and Japan, whilst all around the world plastic was being woven to resemble straw.

Always keep makeup etc. in a separate, sealed bag within your vintage handbag, to avoid damaging the lining.

Our favourite look of the 1970s was the explosion of Navajo-inspired jewels, which is currently a huge trend.
