nomadicbags' Shop Announcement

Hola! I have left Hawaii, moving to Mexico to retire and sew! new carpetbags will be posting in March, here and in my other store, KITAbags! http://www.etsy.com/shop/KITAbags?ref=search_shop_redirect?

all my bags are true to the Nomadic Bags model and standards.
but the KITAbags have the most collectible textiles, the most intricate handwork,
and 30 or more hours of my time in their design and construction.

there are a few new bags on KITA to be pored over, and collected.
but primarily, KITAbags will be custom bags, lovingly made to order for you...


For a NOMADIC BAG that is ready to take home now, look in the CURRENT STOCK section. The CUSTOM ORDER bags are prototypes, from which i magine and create your bag. Custom orders may sometimes run a few months. sorry, but there is only one way to make them to my standards, and it takes time!

Beginning in February 2014, NOMADIC BAGS will designed and constructed in my workshop at Hacienda los Muros, in San Miguel de Allende!

I use vintage textiles, most of them hand-knotted/woven/stitched rugs, hangings,and quilts -- from the Nomadic tribes of the Middle East, and textile artists in Hawaii, Thailand, India, Bali, Japan, Africa, and beyond. They are combined with antique and thrift store finds, upcycled and unique.

NOMADIC BAGS look homemade, because they are.
They are organic and old-fashioned...
.
The price of each bag is based on the value of the textiles,
and the time it took to create it.
Each bag is different, engineered to handle and hang just right...

NOMADIC BAGS are drawn to nomadic souls.
They carry the message that the weaving of worlds,
makes us all one...Namaste
