- Water-resistant material used for clothing, traditionally in Austria. It is made from sheep’s wool where the lanolin has not been removed.
- A greyish green color typical of such garments as above.
So exactly what Dooney & Bourke had in mind, we can only guess. The bags are water resistant and some are kind of a greyish green, but not all.
Your bag is part of the Outback and Loden Collection. They are grouped together since they both have the signature brass toggle and braided loop closure.
The Loden bags don’t appear in many of the vintage catalogs, so they must have had a short life.
Yours is a Loden Shoulder Bag R87
9″ tall x 11 /4″ wide x 3 1/2″ deep.
It retailed for $275 in 1996.
As far as the number on the back of your tag that were entering in google. That is your bag’s individual registration number. So you would not find it on the internet.
Enjoy your great find !
