Bag Week: Carpet or Tapestry Bag

Tapestry bag

I don’t have this old carpet aka tapestry bag anymore because I need a purse that you can sling over the shoulder. I still have a couple of hand bags, but mostly they are too impractical. But at the same time so pretty.

These bags are the descendant of hand luggage made from old carpets.The derogatory term “carpetbagger” also derives from the original carpet bag.
