Magical Carpet Bags


Carpets are associated with fantasy and magic.  Fairy tales and lullabies conjure images of carpets that fly and can transport you to fantastical places. Possibly, this is the allure of beautiful vintage carpet bags.

In Western fashions, tapestries and needlepoints are carpet ‘catch phrases’  (article SammyDVintage) and have been used to make purses for decades.  It can be suggested that the 60’s British Invasion influenced both music and fashion in American culture.  The UK’s strong cultural affiliation with India can be see in fashions of Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band–  the Nehru jacket, the paisley, carpet and tapestry accessories.
