"The Blues ", Contrasting Trim, Old World Map Doctors' Carpet Bag with Leather Summary

For difficulties in making a purchase, please use the contact button at  the top of the page.

The often antagonistic relationship that exists between man and the sea has served to inspire poets and painters. The vast blue of the ocean has also inspired textile artists to create some of the most striking tapestries. This is one of those.
The design consists of sailing ships from olden times over a map background. The antique map background is filled with fanciful writing and symbols.

  The top trim is shown in a solid tan color. By special  request, it is available in black as well.
This tapestry fabric of an old world map is multicolored turquoise, aqua, blue and  jewel  tones.  A compass rose is featured. Old world sailing ships with billowing sails navigate the seas.

Tapestry carpet bag size is 18 in.long  x 7 in. deep and approximately 16 in. high. The bag's footprint is 7 x 18  in. As these bags are handmade there can be a variation of up to 1/2" in the dimensions.
The carpet bags may once have been carried by Abe or Brett in 1860 but Mary Poppins made them famous. Our carpet bags are not  heavy bags made from old carpet. Our modernized Mary Poppins bags are made from brocades, chenille and tapestry fabric. Our addition of the casing and laborious top stitching help to create  a tailored and handsome bag that will impress you.

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.
Lawyers use these bags for carrying their briefs into the courtroom.
Teachers and   nurses use
them as going-to-work bags .

Depending on how tightly you pack your bag, most times this soft bag can be hand molded to fit into any limited or odd-shaped space. Quite handy for the overhead storage on the plane.

stage coach to airplane, the carpet bag is a classic !

In addition each bag :

1. Is made-to-order and handcrafted in North Carolina. Shipped direct from the artist.

2. Shipped with a detachable and an adjustable shoulder strap

3. Steel doctors bag frame. The dimensions of the  gate mouth opening are 8 ½ in.  x 16 ½ in.

4. Spring loaded hinges enable the bag to  spring open or pop shut with only a slight hand movement.

5. Genuine leather and a brass buckle   guaranteed not to pop open  at inopportune times.

6. Fully lined with generous pockets

7. Brass buckle, rivets, and six bottom studs

8. Brown or black genuine 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 enclosed by the  glove leather and then sewn closed. (Just like back in the 1800s)
These are the most comfortable
and expensive handles that can be used. Unfortunately they are envied. You may see online images of competitors' bags that appear to be using our very own handles.  Buyer beware.  
 9. We modernized the bag  by adding a casing to prevent the metal frame from shifting around. The bags out of history did not use a casing. That is  one of the reasons that the historical  carpet bagcould be made quickly and sold cheaply to the masses.

10. Hidden hardboard bottom . Not cardboard.

11. Availability: 2-10 days. Bags are made to order.

12. Free shipping for the 48 contiguous states. Shipping elsewhere ranges from $45 - $60.

13. Tax: will be charged for NC residents at checkout at the rate of 7.25%
