Italian Elegance Double Woven Brocade Chenille Tapestry Carpet Bag Summary

 
For difficulties in making a purchase or just needing some quick information,  please use the contact button at the top of page.

Description:
 This exquisite Italian tapestry fabric retails for $100 - $200.00 per yard online. However, our latest purchase of this gorgeous Italian brocade fabric was  woven especially for us here at  CARPET BAG REPLICAS. Of course, our bags are all meticulously handcrafted in North Carolina. This double woven  matelasse  tapestry and chenille is a thick  high end fabric. 



Size
Carpet bag size is 18 in.long  x 7 in. wide and approximately 16in. high. The bag's footprint is 7 x 18  in.
 
General description and features
     1. has a detachable and adjustable coordinating fabric shoulder strap
   2. steel doctor's bag frame
   3. We modernized the carpet bag  by adding a casing to stabilize the metal  
       frame.
   4. We use a buckle; for security purposes, a buckle is always more secure 
       than Velcro. 
   5. Once unbuckled,  the frame's spring-loaded hinges enable the bag to
        pop open or shut with a slight hand movement .  
   6. Ours are impressive bags with tailored top stitching. 
   7. As a whole, our carpet bags are not  heavy bags made from stiff  carpet 
       but instead  are made from high end brocades, chenille and tapestry 
       fabric.

   8.  The bags are collapsible and will be shipped to you flat. We do not use
        stiff rugs, cardboard, or plastic stiffeners  to make the bag stand 
        upright.
   9.  Bags are fully lined with generous pockets

 10.  Solid brass  buckle, rivets, and 6 bottom studs
 11.  Hidden hardboard bottom for support (not cardboard)
 12.  Glove leather  rope  handles. These handles are not “faked” as most     
           bag   makers do. Our handles are truly  a length of  soft cotton rope
        that has been  completely wrapped by the  thick leather and then  
        sewn closed. (Just like back in the 1700's - 1800s) These are the most 
        comfortable and  expensive handles that can be used.

        One  California  carpet bag seller is taking  images of our own 
           high quality rope handles and using them as the bait to   
                sell her own bags online.   Naturally the bag that her
                     customer actually receives is far more cheaply
                           made than the bag from which they
                                             were baited.
      
                                   BUYER BEWARE!

    
        
 

   
Stow away easily
    Since it is classified as  soft-side  luggage, up to two of these bags can be placed inside a third carpet bag. Quite handy for  bringing home all the extras  that were purchased  on vacation.
      Depending on how tightly you pack your bag, most times these soft bags can be hand molded to fit into any limited or odd-shaped space. They are sometimes stowed away below airline seats or in the overhead storage.

Most beautiful bag I own. 5 product stars
"I purchased this bag last year as a gift to myself because I have always wanted a carpet bag since I was a little girl. It is such a beautiful bag, the picture does not do it justice. It's sturdy and very well made and the fabric is extraordinary. The whole purchase experience was excellent, I received emails and a personal phone call from Elaine Thomas herself to keep me informed about my order. I love my bag so much and I feel so special when I carry it. I hope to have a grand daughter one day that I can pass it on to" Kathy - 10/15/2013
It's a work of art 5 product stars
"I cannot begin to express how the pictures do not do justice to the bag that arrived this morning. The colors are so crisp, vibrant and complimentary. Additionally, the attention to detail and overall construction is way beyond what I expected. Yes, the pricing is a bit steep but this bag is truly a piece of art and will be used and admired for many years to come. Thank you for my bit of Mary Poppins history. Its first trip will be to London!" michelle - 7/15/2014
