This stunning tan leather handbag is our fresh edit to the original Gallop Guru saddle handbag and the later petite 'Palomo' version.
The Marengo II is larger than the Palomo and features a fixed top handle which is perfect for carrying the bag neatly in the crook of the arm. Still as versatile as the Palomo however, this more capacious version also has the option of the longer shoulder or cross body strap which is great for when you need your hands free at events, shows and festivals - whilst ensuring your precious bag stays safely close to you. The longer handle attaches to two discreet metal loops inside the bag which disappear neatly when not being used.
The bag is entirely hand-crafted in the UK from finest quality soft textured rich tan Italian leather and finished with a hidden magnetic catch. The contrasting silver nickel studs and handle hinges complement the bag perfectly and the longer strap featuring our signature nickel horseshoe buckle crystallizes the equestrian credentials of this superb quality handbag with aplomb.
We anticipate the Marengo II will be as popular as its baby sister has been and will equally establish itself as yet another timeless classic.
PLEASE NOTE WE DO NOT HOLD LARGE STOCK QUANTITIES OF THIS BAG WHICH WILL NORMALLY BE HAND-MADE TO ORDER. LEAD TIME IS ABOUT 7-10 DAYS.
Product Code GGG-10-00
We chose the name Marengo for this fabulous bag, after the famous war horse belonging to Napoleon Bonaparte. Almost without exception all horse lovers have a soft spot in their hearts for the valiant, loyal and brave horses who have proved their worth on the battlefield. Whether or not we agree with man's motivation to fight wars, it is universally accepted that the horses involved have never had a choice but have nevertheless performed their duties with devotion, courage and dignity.
