Made of Carpet

Welcome to the world of Mary Poppins! Made of Carpet bags are Renaissance 150-year-old Victorian fashion treasures. They are for the modern romantic and elegant lady with a passion for vintage paraphernalia. MADE OF CARPET was the 2014 Drapers Accessory Designer of the year Finalist.

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 glamor. Not to mention the fact that American history is also not added to honor the innocent carpet bags. At Made of Carpet we decided to bring justice and restore the former glory of unique and elegant Victorian 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 handmade in Europe from Western European carpet, they are durable, rainproof and easy to maintain and not mass produced.
