Barrel Bag

Dooney and Bourke Barrel Bag

Barrel Bag (cylinder for the geometry types) is term that is used to describe the overall shape of the purse when laid flat. They tend to have circular sides, a long cylindrical body, two straps and closed by a zipper. The bottom tends to be almost flat to avoid the barrel bag from falling over; but when carried, the items inside round out the bag making it appear like a barrel.
