Carpet Weekender Bag
About Our Carpet Weekender Bag
This one-of-a-kind Oriental Carpet travel bag is your perfect companion for a weekend jaunt or adventure. It is large enough to fit everything you need for about 4 days, but small enough to fit in the overhead compartment of a plane. All of our Carpet bags are handmade from vintage, hand-sourced Turkish carpets, which means that no two items will ever be alike. The Carpet Weekender bag pictured is the actual bag that you will receive.
As opposed to flat-woven kilims, hand-knotted oriental carpets are known for their “pile,” the small, raised fibers that give it a fuzzy texture and a soft, velvety hand. That quality has made oriental carpets more difficult to work with in the past, but our clever cobblers have found a way to gently shave down the pile while preserving its lush feel and appearance.
