Meet the Kyaoso Wayfarer Carpet Bag. Named with the Burmese word for “Welcome,” this travel tapestry bag features a red, brown & gold tapestry upholstery fabric. Plus, we’ve taken all your favorite features in our top handle carpet bags and given them an upgrade to transform this carpet purse into a travel bag:
✔ 10″ cloth handles so that you can easily carry the bag on your shoulders
✔ A structured base so that your bag will retain its shape
✔ A crossbody strap made from cotton webbing straps, so you can turn the purse into a travel bag
✔ 3 slip pockets, lined and with interfacing so they’ll hold your stuff better
✔ Leather tassel made from remnants
Measuring 12″ high, 17″ across and 6″ width, this bag will hold a lot. The carpet purse is made from Venetian Style tapestry remnant fabric.
Our carpet travel bags are inspired by the refugee women who work with us. The definition of “wayfarer” is someone who travels by foot. And that’s how our refugee moms escaped the dangerous situations they were in. They had to travel, often for long periods by foot, some for days through the jungle. As with all our products, this tapestry carpet purse is more than just a fashion item. It’s part of the story of hope and finding home – the story of the refugee women who work with us.
Your purchase of the Wayfarer carpet bag supports our work projects for women in poverty! Our mission is to give women opportunities to grow in skills, earn needed income and experience the dignity of work. Learn more about our project at personagratagoods.com
