One of the most sought after pieces is the original large carpet bags, otherwise know as Mary Poppins bags! This huge piece of luggage from the 1960s is like a doctors bag in style and is made from a cotton tapestry, rather than a carpet fabric which makes it a little lighter. Sturdy and stiffened, it will fit everything you need for a long weekend away. A short grab bag makes it easy to carry, and there is a loop so you can add your own vintage padlock for security. But perhaps the best bit is that you can open it totally, allowing you to find your shoes right at the bottom really easily. This is your sign to start travelling in style!

Please get in touch if you have any questions.
