RESERVED for ALLY POTTER only buy if you are Ally Potter!
Handmade carpet bag designed and made by me from a matt earth brown hide and hand made rug. The rug has a rich rust red and pale camel field colour with various strong geometric motifs in; sky blue, olive green, light ochre, cream and dark navy blue/black. Not an antique rug, I'm not sure when this was made; last half ot the twentieth century is my best guess.Finely knotted, well made and wih a Shirvan Caucasian pattern, cotton weft and all wool knotting.

Sides in mahogany wood dusted with green, mauve and red sparkly irridescence. The sides are attached to the rug and leather with thonging.

Closing straps in black buffalo hide with brass studwork and 2 square ring closures.
A sturdy carry handle in veg tan leather with an oak back plate inside for strength.
Inside is unlined so that you can appreciate the fine knotwork of the rug.

This is a 'one of a kind artwork', it has the classical elegant feel of traditional bespoke luggage and also encompasses oriental and tribal traditions. You could carry your electronic gadgetry in it, precious documents or magical treasures. It is big enough to be a travelling bag, an overnight bag, a man bag, maybe you can get a small notebook/tablet/laptop in it. This carpet bag could be called a suitcase, a briefcase, attache case, carryall or a carry on cabin bag. You could step onto the Orient Express with this bag or make an entrance at your next presentation meeting. This is a statement bag... exactly what it says depends on you! Unique, luxury, steampunk, Bohemian, classic, eco,......
