Here’s the latest in our Journey Carpet Bag collection. With steampunk vibes, this chenille tapestry bag is a perfect edgier take on the Mary Poppins bag! This is a crossbody carpet purse that is stylish, practical and just plain roomy. Made in a hobo bag style with red & gold upholstery chenille textile remnants, this carpet handbag features a tan interior with an three inner side pockets, and a wider pocket on the side that fits water bottles or toddler’s sippy cups! The crossbody carpet purse also has a magnetic snap, a swivel hook and a crossbody strap.
We’ve named it the Journey in honor of the refugee & immigrant women we work with. These moms have had intense, traumatic journeys in their lives so far, yet are resilient and strong. They’ve learned to make do with what life gives them, showing great courage and faith.
The Journey Carpet Crossbody Purse was sewn in North Carolina as part of our employment initiative. We believe the best way to fight poverty is through the power of earned income.
Measuring 14″ high, 11″ across and 6″ width, this crossbody bag will hold a lot. The adjustable canvas webbing crossbody handle allows the purse to be flexible, whether you want to carry it on your shoulder or hang it from a stroller handle. It works as a fair trade diaper bag, daytrip purse or just a “carry-it-all” in style handbag!
