The genuine article, a gorgeous boho handbag made by Carpet Bags of Rougham, Suffolk, England. Carpet Bags was established in 1972 and is still trading today, but this bag probably dates back to the early days of the business.

The handbag is constructed from 100% wool Axminster-style carpet (with an intensely busy floral print in red, pink, green, yellow, brown, orange and black) on a robust tarnished steel frame with permanent strap attachments and solid clasp; the strap edge is finished in brown overcast stitching. Inside the bag is the signature brown lining and Carpet Bags label (see photos).

Dimensions: 32cms x 21cms tall x 12 cms.
Length of strap: 75cms

Condition: two of the bottom corners are a little threadbare (see photos), but this is still an extremely robust bag with much life left in it. Bags of character!

P&P: I'll mail anywhere. If you don't see your region listed, please convo me for a shipping quotation.
