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.

Welcome to the world of Mary Poppins!

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.

Our bags are not mass production – we keep quite limited stock. All bags and their components made within European Union.

Carpets are woven in Western Europe out of synthetic yarn on cotton base. All trimmings are made by genuine leather.

Carpet is rainproof - an adhesive on the back of the carpet prevents moisture to come through - washable, but we do not recommend washing the bags because of their leather or/and metal trimmings and cardboard bottoms. We recommend cleaning it by carpet foam.

We are Trade Mark registered London-based well established Fashion Brand.
