Mary Poppins, it’s time to grab a new carpet bag! Using a Wine & Gold tapestry upholstery fabric and a fun long tassel, this is a purse that is stylish, practical and just plain roomy. This carpet handbag features a durable, tan fabric interior, a reinforced purse base, a metal zipper and a fun brown leather tassel & key charm. And because it’s such a big purse, we’ve included a key clasp tab and 3 interior pockets on the inside!
Measuring 12″ high, 17″ across and 6″ width, this wine and gold carpet bag will hold a lot. The leather handles are nice and long at 7″ high. Our bags are made as sustainably as possible as we seek to minimize the negative impacts of the fashion industry on the environment. We use upholstery fabric remnants as well as leather remnants from other shops in our carpet bags. As a side note, our leather handles are NOT from China. We instead source through a South Korean manufacturer.
We call this purse the “Wayfarer”. 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.
This purse is made by Mai.
