8. Brown or black 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 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 bag could be made quickly and sold cheaply to the masses.
