Not Your Grandmother's Carpet Bag

August 20, 2017

Carpet Bag

When you hear the words "carpet bag" you probably think of Mary Poppins who flew into the movie with her umbrella and magical carpet bag in hand. Or you may have seen old photos of your grandmother or great-grandmother carrying a carpet bag.....but trust me these are not your grandmother's carpet bags.
When carpet bags were first introduced in the late nineteenth century they were designed to act as baggage. Baggage that could be carried personally without the aid of a porter when travelling. They were actually with carpet remnants and a well made bag could last a life time. Today carpet bags can be found in most top designers accessory lines and have definitely made a comeback.
My collection of carpet bags are made of new upholstery fabric and have all of the traditional features of a carpet bag-leather handles, protective feet, and a firm base.
romance&ruin carpet bags come in a multitude of colours and sizes and each bag is 
finished with its own vintage piece of jewellery to decorate its front.
Each bag is lined with a coordinating fabric and includes a zippered pocket and a key fob.
The large bags make a great carry-on or weekender bag that can accomodate a laptop. Or, if you're like me, a large bag for everyday.....I hate to leave home without nearly everything that I might ever need! Check my listings for all carpet bags that are currently available.
I'll be curious to see if the newest version of Mary Poppins still carries a carpet bag. I think she'd look magnificent with a romance&ruin bag.
Thanks for stopping by!
