Antique and vintage Moroccan rug clutch handbag with long chain

Antique and vintage Moroccan rug clutch handbag with long chain

$53.00


 

Just 2 left. Every bag completely unique and made from wonderful Moroccan antique and vintage carpets and flat weaves. These textiles are art pieces and so once the carpet has become too old to repair they are recycled into beautiful bags and their beauty and the skill of the artisans lives on.

I came across a shop in the Marrakech souks that sold these gorgeous cross-body or shoulder bags that can also be used as a clutch or handbag. 27cm x 18cm

What I fell in love with was the old vintage rugs used to create these bags - they were aged and imperfect...absolutely beautiful colours, some muted, some worn, some embroidered. It was so hard to choose.

This one is a combo of the tufted rug with orange/reds and yellows plus the flat weave in red, white and black woven in pure wool. 

A long anodised metal chain is attached in either side to wear the bag across body or from the shoulder. It hangs just above hip level. The chain can also be detached to carry the bag as a clutch. The total length of the chain is 110cms + rings.

Two magnetised clasps attach the top flap to the bag body.

Inside the bag is lined with a beautiful black suede.A heavy zip makes sure the bag is well made and will last for years. There is also an inside zipped pocket.

A beautiful and completely unique bag...no two the same...made by artisans in the ancient souks of Marrakech.
