Carpetbags

У меня новая маничка - carpetbags.

Я ими рехнулась примерно тогда же, когда и Anthropologie, но решила попридержать. Это сумки моей мечты. aromaroma, ты тоже заценишь, я думаю.

Идеальная сумка для эротических игр в Мэри Поппинс и Доктор-квин-женщина-врач. Мальчики могут играть в Рэтта Баттлера и в свой-среди-чужих-чужой-среди-своих (камбуттаба там золото, а не носки)

Некоторые из вас знают, что в прошлом году в Барселоне я потратила неприличную с моей точки зрения сумму денег на саквояж из зеброваной коровы. Так вот. Меня это ничему не научило и тягу к подобным предметам не уменьшило. Поэтому я наковыряла в инторнетах тучу производителей, один другого краше. Встречайте:

The Victorian Traveller carpet bags, AZ, USA



3 формы сумок, ассортимент расцветок, все сделаны вручную. Технология говорят аутентичная викторианская. Нидорага, по-моему.

Artisan Street, San Francisco, CA, USA





http://www.carpetbags.co.uk - это уже люкс и Англия.

Дорага, но по-моему нереальная круть. И шипят оверсиз, в отличие.








... и для "самых маленьких" почитателей демократичные сумки Isabella's Journey

Можно купить, например, здесь, здесь  и здесь




у нее еще бывают пальто, жакеты, пледы и все-все все

Brief History of Carpetbags and Carpetbaggers

With the rapid expansion of railroads in the 1840’s and 1850’s . Ordinary people were traveling in large numbers, and there was an need for cheap luggage ,so thousands of carpetbags were manufactured. They were made by saddle makers in many town and cities and were many sizes and shape. They were called Carpetbags because the makers would buy old carpets and construct the bags from the pieces of carpet that were not completely worn out. This how Carpet bags could be manufactured cheaply , they sold in Dry Goods for $1 to $2.
By the 1860’s carpetbags were carried by all most everyone, Men, Women, well to do , middle class and not so well to do. Carpetbags were the first suitcases made in large numbers. When you traveled during the Civil War (1861-1865) and though the 1870, you packed your Carpetbag . This became a way to identify an outsider (traveler).

During the civil war Reconstruction Period (1865-1870) many people for the Northern States went South because it was so poor that there many opportunities for a person with money even a little money. For example you could own a farm by paying the past due taxes for as little as $25. These Opportunities attacked all sorts people from honest hard working farmers, to crooks, charlatans, con artist and of course crooked politicians. All these outsiders (identified by their Carpetbag) were called Carpetbaggers and still are in many places. It became the term to refer to a Yankee who moved to the south and usually meant a “damn Yankee and not to be trusted, a scoundrel”. Probably the worst Carpetbaggers were the politicians who used their positions in the corrupt Reconstruction Government to enrich themselves through bribes, graft and other despicable acts at the expense of native Southerners. Today the dictionary defines a Carpetbagger as “ an outsider involved in politics”.
