WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF MARY POPPINS!

London, England | 303 Sales

Announcement    At Made of Carpet® we decided to bring justice and restore the former glory of unique and elegant Victorian Carpet bags.

For the last 150 years you could find “carpet” bags made of tapestry, kilim, velvet or velour and even simple cloth, some of them even have Oriental patterns, but none of them were made of real Oriental Rugs.

It seems like the whole problem was that it is very difficult to sew these kinds of bags out of real, deep-piled thick carpet and people started making "carpet" bags out of look-alike materials which has devalued them and deprived of their deserved glamour. Not to mention the fact that American history is also not added to honour the innocent carpet bags.

We have closely examined all possible modern materials and technologies, and have found those that meet a performance capability of modern machinery, all high quality requirements of the real Victorian Carpet bags and modern health and safety standards.

On Etsy since 2014

Welcome to the world of Mary Poppins!

We are ‘Made of Carpet’, a unique British heritage brand. We design and produce traditional and exclusive handcrafted Carpet Bags. We are the Renaissance of Victorian Fashion.

The idea of these beautiful unique Carpet Bags has been inspired by such famous English literary characters as Mary Poppins and Miss Marple.

Designed in London and handcrafted exclusively in Europe, our bags come with bespoke trimmings and made from the finest quality rugs produced in Western Europe.

We have closely examined all kinds of materials and technologies, and have found those that meet a performance capacity of the highest nature in modern machinery, all of which meet an authentic Victorian experience as well as health and safety standards. Our carpets are rainproof, soft, light and silky, yet thick and firm at the same time. They are full-bodied, strong and durable.

Our manufacturers are highly reputable and established businesses. Led by industry experts, their teams of experienced craftsmen demonstrate incredible attention to detail.

These efforts have not gone unrecognised. We were Finalists at Drapers Digital festival Award, Drapers Footwear and Accessories Award, British Travelgoods, Handbags and Accessory Association Fashion Accessory of the Year Award, Best Business Woman Award, West London Business Award, and British Top Designer Competition. We were also an official goodie bags partner of BRIT Award 2015.

We have exhibited at the London and Paris Fashion Weeks.

We sell to more than 50 countries all around the globe. Among our customers are many highly recognisable names, including former Lord Mayor of London Dame Fiona Woolf, a member of
Bony M Sheyla Bonnick, TV presenters Ashley James and Sandi Bogle and more.

Our bags were featured in BBC period detective drama “Ripper Street” (season 2, series 3 “Became Man”).

Also, our bag was used in advertising of Virgin Atlantic, dedicated to releasing of Disney’s Mary Poppins Returns movie.
