Carpet Bag Log Carrier
This product is currently sold out.
Inspired by the famous Carpet Bags of the mid-19th Century.
With the rapid expansion of railroads in the 1840’s and 1850’s, Americans found whole new worlds open for exploration. Tourism exploded. Followed by the need for inexpensive luggage. Saddle makers saw this demand and began purchasing old, worn carpets to turn into traveling bags. As tourists arrived in faraway towns and cities, bag in hand, locals began referring to them as "carpetbaggers."
We've recreated this tradition by using a local artisan to sew our log carrier from vintage-inspired upholstery fabric, lined with brown canvas duck cloth for strength. The handles are made from polished, sturdy local sticks.
- Size - 19" wide x 14 1/2" tall when holding handles. Note: Wood handles are unique to every bag. Will slightly vary.
