Find of the Day: Victorian Carpet Bags


Whilst on Twitter, I found a post about bags made of oriental carpets. Intrigued, I knew I would either hate them or love them and fortunately it was the latter. In fact, I was so impressed by the "carpet bags" I decided to make them my find of the day! The bags, which can be found on http://www.madeofcarpet.com/ are perfect for that bohemian flair and prints, especially folk prints and navajo are very in right now. The bags are inspired by the Victorian era and the website says there is a hint of Miss Marple about them, however, I think they are slightly more stylish than Miss Marple (thank goodness!). Although you may enter many shops or street stalls and find carpet bags (they seem to have made a comeback for a few years now), these ones are not just made of tapestry that is not very durable, but from thick Oriental rugs. Because of this I suspect they would keep their shape, rather than being all... flaccid like most material ones! They will set you back a bit, but I think the material and design of them are very luxurious and a great key piece for any bohemian fashionista.
