Carpet Bag #51
The glory of this bag is that it is machine washable. Truly, toss it into the washer and then the dryer and it will be clean, fresh and ready to go onto another day. It can travel with you anywhere because it's capable of cleaning up afterwards.
Its other grand features include a heavy metal zipper that keeps contents safely inside no matter where it is tossed, or falls over or lands. Everything will remain inside.
Another grand feature is its ability to hold weight. The shoulder strap is padded and machine quilted so your shoulder and hands will bear its presence in comfort. The straps are sewn down the length of the body and into the bottom seam, This enables the bag to carry strength when toting books, thermos, running shoes and frankly anything you need.
All of our bags are crafted from found fabrics. We then wash them in hot soapy water and over dry in a hot dryer. Whatever would happen to the fabric during washing has already happened before we even cut. This also means that the bag, although strong, is very soft and folds up easily to store. I'm told when filled with clothes, it makes a great pillow.
The bag is 14" tall, 21" wide at the top along the zipper and the sides are 6" wide at the bottom. The strap length can vary a little depending on the availability of the coordinating fabric we choose.
The interior is cream colored cotton duck. This makes finding contents much easier then a dark lining. There is a large pocket on each side in order to categorize contents.
Please note: I have a paper bag inside the bag for the photo for display purposes.
