Fashion is flying on magical carpet to woo women with the season’s latest bag collection. Ralph Lauren has launched the Tapestry Collection to complement the label’s Russian-inspired Fall 2013 line up. Each one of the carpet bag is unique as it features genuine pieces of woolen tapestry. The heirloom inspired bags also style up with rugged leather straps, brass hardware and plush shearling trim.
The Large Carpet Shearling Tote (featured above) was seen at Fall 2013 Ralph Lauren Collection runway show and has now hit the shelves for $2,950. Made in Italy, this bohemian bag sports two handles at the top along with a detachable leather shoulder strap. The fold-over leather strap with gold-toned hardware secures at the front.
The Carpet Shearling Hobo is crafted by an American artisan from authentic vintage carpets and supple leather. Priced at $1,950, this spacious hobo bag looks chic with plush shearling trimming. The exquisite bag dangles with a single leather shoulder strap while antiqued gold- and silver-toned chain attached to the strap offers the ultimate bohemian-chic look.
Along with sporting a shearling trim at the top, the Carpet Patchwork Tote also flaunts a 2,400 tag. Made in the US, the classic assorted bag sits on a reinforced suede bottom and hand-tooled leather detailing along the side’s leather tabs.
Finally for the city woman with a dominating unconventional streak, here is the compact Military Small Carpet Bag from the same collection. Though small in size, it brags a larger tag of $2750. Made from refined wool, it is hand-knotted to create an intricate bohemian medallion pattern. This small cross-body bag also follows the rest of the collection by sporting lacquered leather trim and a military-inspired metal-tipped strap. And like the Large Carpet Tote, this one too is made in Italy.
