A fold over bag, crafted from hand-woven rich carpet, made in the UK, by British brand Swag & Tassel.
Swag and Tassel is a luxury British handbag brand that uses antique & vintage carpets and hand selected leathers to create an exciting juxtaposition between old and new.
Behind this unique brand is Welsh designer Sophie Wordsworth. She creates pieces that offer individuality and that are made from hand-woven carpets by tribes in Northern Persia, some of which are up to 200 years old. These are mixed with colourful soft and fine leathers sourced in East London, and put together in her studio in Wales.
The use of leather and 100% wool carpets combine two very natural materials which both complement each other and both have rich artisan histories.
The different thickness of materials, colours and patterns allows each piece to be individual and exclusive with its own special story to tell.
