Reproduction 1860s Duffle Bags on Etsy

Reproduction 1860s Duffle Bags

I've just recently finished and posted some new additions to my Etsy Shop!

These Wool and Linen Duffle Bags are reproduced from an Original seen HERE on Karen Augusta's Antique Lace and Fashion Website.

I've wanted to reproduce one of these for ages, since first seeing the original for sale on her site. This would be perfect for taking to reenactments to carry your overnight belongings, shopping purchases, or even a picnic lunch!

The embroidery is all done by machine. I love the antique buttons!

I plan to continue making these in the future in different color variations.
Below are the colors currently available on my Etsy listing!

  1. These are really cool! Are you going to make some out of carpet so that we can be carpetbaggers? ;-P

  2. Thanks for the sweet comments!

    I don't think that I'll be making any carpet bags anytime soon. Family Heirloom Weavers already does such an excellent job of that with their reproduction carpets used for the bags! :)
