Reminiscent of vintage carpet bags used in the 1800's, this generous size bag is made using an elegant tapestry fabric in a beautiful red and gold Victorian design. Quality leather (similar to equine leather) is used for the handles and two strap enclosures. Solid brass buckles adorn the top closure, while four brass feet are placed at each corner on the bottom. With a sturdy inner frame, your bag can last a lifetime with proper care. A stylish, yet versatile travel bag sure to draw attention and compliments. These bags were inspired by the movie "Tombstone" after the creators Kathy and Jerry were extras in the film. Bag measures 19" wide x 17" tall x 7 1/2" deep and has a 10 oz. heavy duty purple canvas lining with 3 inside pockets. Leather shoulder strap is optional and sold separately, see below.
Note: Color with indoor light resembles a little deeper red. Under bright lights, it is as pictured.
Dimensions: 19" wide x 17" tall x 7 1/2" deep
Note: Optional leather shoulder strap is available for $20. See Carpetbag Shoulder Strap.

I purchased this bag for a family wedding trip I took to England last fall. I knew I wanted to carry it on the plane but then didn't know how much I would use it once I arrived. The size turned out to be exactly right for all of the little trips we took while traveling from home base. If we didn't check into our bed and breakfast or lodgings until later, I felt stylish with my carpet bag by my side. Since being back in the states I use it for every weekend trip we take. I always receive compliments and remarks on the beautiful craftsmanship. It is truly gorgeous and I know it will get more beautiful as it wears with time. I plan on purchasing additional bags in the near future. I also received a handwritten card and an extra little gift that I use everyday. How perfect is that! Thank you so much for my elegant accessory. :)
