If you have a particular colour or texture in mind but can’t see it on our website please contact us and we will do our best to find it for you.  We can also tweak our designs - lengthen straps, change fastenings, add tassels etc to make your bag even more 'you'.

And if you have a threadbare vintage carpet that you are very attached to we can make your bag out of it then you never have to throw it away!

If you would like to receive samples of carpet or leather to help you decide, please get in touch and we will send you a glorious little package to brighten up your day.

Our delivery charge to addresses in the UK is £5 per order.

For an expedited service or delivery overseas please contact us for postage costs.

If only they could talk.  We source our vintage rugs from anywhere and everywhere – friends’ grannies’ attics, jumble sales, crumbling old farmhouses on remote hilltops – we never know when we’re going to come across one. 

They may be unloved and a bit threadbare when we get hold of them, but with a thorough deep clean and some tlc we can give them a whole new lease of life as part of a beautiful handmade bag.

The magic carpet travellers in our workshop are currently available in the carpet shown in the second photograph above (kelim).  

The leather used on the bag shown above is made in antique tan with our standard peat leather piping.
