Could You Make Beautiful Carpet Bags- Business Ideas 2018 And Beyond.

In the UK we are all obsessed with Colours and textures and with an eye for something different and the return of The Mary Poppins style, Carpet bags are making a serious comeback for that timeless look and feel.
The great thing with this business idea is incorporating the different ages into each bag and with each one injecting creativity and individual style. There is something quite unique about having both modern and traditional incorporated together. There are other styles that can be created using the same style such as Tote bags, rucksacks, satchels and purses.
Carpet Bags was born when its founder Loretta wanted to make something to donate to a charity stall. Whilst having a love for auctions and anything old, Loretta always ended up taking old carpets home. After some thought she took the old carpet down to the launderette and asked the lady to wash it in one of the big machines. The carpet was then used to make beautiful carpet bags of various styles, although Loretta didn’t quite get her pricing right and didn’t sell them all at the stall, she took them to London and sold half of her bags to Liberty Regent Street and the other half to Harrods. It wasn’t long before they were asking for more and an unintended business opportunity had opened wide for Loretta.
Making carpet bags can be lucrative if you have an eye for the right patterns to use and source the right tools including a sewing machine that can cope with the materials. If you widen the styles you offer and include Tote bags and rucksacks, you will also attract a wider audience.
If you have the time and can run a home business around your commitments, selling your bags predominately online would be the best idea to begin with. There are some pretty beautiful carpet bags out there on Pinterest and Etsy, before you invest any further take a look at what is out there and combine that with some of the business ideas you have.  If you build a unique style and your own brand, you too could become known for beautiful bags.
