0 out of 5 stars
(94)

Announcement   Hola from Mexico! I have just listed 6 new carpetbags here, and 4 on KITAbags! They are listed in CURRENT STOCK. All CUSTOM ORDER bags are SOLD. I will be making bags from my retirement, but only as inspiration hits, so no more custom bags for now, sorry...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.

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 my new bags. I am not taking CUSTOM ORDERS per se, any longer. But will instead be posting some bags before they have straps or bling, so you can make choices of your own!

NOMADIC BAGS are now designed and constructed in my workshop in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.

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

About

Let life lead...

My life has led me here, and I am grateful.

For 63 years I have ignored ambition and followed my heart.

Most of the things I expected from my life did not happen.
But what did happen has enriched me more than head dreams ever could have...

I taught myself to sew so I could make bags like the ones I first loved...the ones with big old visible stitching and funky old hand made fabrics...the ones that lasted forever and doubled as pillows on an overnight train.

The etsy community offers me a conduit to clients who GET the power of things made by hand, and loved, and released into the world.

They get the history and the essence and the way we are all connected thru the things we make and treasure.

I love doing what I do and intend to keep doing it.
Namaste.

aloha and namaste,

i am a one human shop,
so everything is flexible here.

my goal is to bring new life to old creations,
then share them with you.

i use textiles which were hand made
by the nomadic tribes of Central Asia.
i recycle and repurpose them into Nomadic Bags.

i use recycled fabrics and trim and accessories
whenever possible,
because it is a shame to just throw something away
when it is still beautiful...

i can do custom orders,
using your charms or fetishes...
even your carpet
if you send it to me...

my intent is to help us remember that
we are all just people, sharing one planet.

our art is the world's art.
the world is big.
we are all in this
together.

it is good to be reminded...

i use paypal because they make it easy.

Same reason...
Shipping
I have recently moved to Mexico, and for now do not trust any locally available shipping. I will hand carry the bags to Texas every few months, and ship from there.
If you cant wait, sorry...somebody else will!

PLEASE ASK FOR A QUOTE BEFORE PURCHASE!
Whatever it may say in the listing, you need a current quote!

just contact me before you order,
I will do the research and send a quote,
and we can make it happen.

your bag comes wrapped in fabric, then cardboard,
or a reinforced mailer bag.
no styrofoam or icky stuff.

i have not included insurance, but i will cover it.
it only costs a couple dollars per hundred...

i do international shipping, and
i won't ever charge you any more than i pay.
good karma.
Refunds and Exchanges
again,
mutual kindness, mutual respect.
we work out all the details as we go.
Additional policies and FAQs
CUSTOM ORDERS:
I loved doing them, but they are time eaters, and I am retired now, so my time is more precious to me, lol. Feel free to ask, and if it is something I feel drawn to do, I may surprise you and say yes...
Mahalo and aloha.
