East German Moquette Leather Large Slouch Carpet Bag
Keeping true to my style of using rare and amazing materials, I've made a large Carpet Bag from genuine vintage East German moquette from the 80s!
I love this demure and brutalist abstract design with peppered mustard and lime green against a navy blue background; it's so soft and velvety with 80% wool content and it would have been woven on a loom.
This unused fabric would have been seen on buses or trains in East Germany.
Carefully stitched into repurposed leather, with a leather panel underneath, it's made to last and to throw things in for all the 'essential' shopping and travel you do at the moment! I have a Neon Butterfly one, and use it everyday and it will go for years. This fabric is made to withstand so much, it's indestructable!
Lined with durable City of Sydney Film Festival banner and handy leather pocket
