Traditional travelling Carpet bag hand made from antique tribal rug and leather.

Strapwork: Handles [38 inches long-adjustable plus or minus 2 inches], top and straps made in oiled finish charcoal brown hide, with vintage brass rings and stud reinforced leather understraps for extra strength, durable zip for closure. There is a handbeaten silver plate with a set amethyst- the travellers stone on the bags strapwork.

Each Carpet bag is unique, completely individual and 'one of a kind'. Designed and made to capture the wonderful geometry and motifs in the tribal rug, each one has its own special character. This Carpet bag is unlined.


We make these Carpet bags from pieces and fragments of old and beautiful tribal rugs, almost always of over 100 years of age, which are so worn or damaged as to make them un restorable.

In this carpet bag we honour the rug makers and their craft; and we continue the lives of these extraordinary old textiles.

The glowing colour and subtle patina of these ancient rugs is due in part to their age and also the use of organic natural dyeing techniques, some of which are now lost.
The individual character of the rug comes from the lustrous hand spun sheep's wool, the traditional material of the nomadic life, and the unique designs and craft of each tribal family.

Hand made with care in our workshop here in the Cambrian Mountains of Wales, this Carpet bag could be a life long friend.



This Carpetbag measures; 22.5 inches long, 11 inches wide, 11 inches high and is a perfect size for weekend travel bag.

Double seamed, in places triple seamed, with rivets at stress points, your Carpet bag will withstand any ordinary use, and quite a lot of extraordinary use too.
