Description

Vintage Carpet Bags are traveling bag made of carpet, commonly from an oriental rug. They were a popular form of luggage in the United States and Europe in the 19th century. The carpet bag was invented as a type of baggage light enough for a passenger to carry, like a duffel bag, as opposed to a wooden or metal trunk, which required the assistance of porters. Its use implied self-sufficiency: in Jules Verne’s 1873 novel Around the World in Eighty Days, Phileas Fogg and Passepartout bring only Carpet Bags as Soft Sided Luggages, which holds a few items of clothing and a great deal of cash!
