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

Description:
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.


colors
This tapestry fabric of an old world map is multicolored with striking blue jewel  tones. A compass rose are featured. Old world sailing ships with billowing sails navigate the seas.
 
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 prevent the metal
       frame from shifting around.
   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 - 1800’s) 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.
