Traveling to the Middle East is not on the top of my list of things to do these days, but a trip taken two years ago by a Munich fashion company resulted in the 'A Kind of Guise' Kilim Project.

The A Kind of Guise Kilim Project is a launch of a collection of carry bags by the Munich-based brand. After venturing into the Middle East, the designers purchased a plethora of used, hand-knitted carpets from nearly every country surrounding the Persian Gulf. Some of the hand-knitted rugs date back to the 19th century. Over the years, the company has collected over 50 carpets to make a limited release of 100 bags.

With intricate designs combined with quality leather, each bags is handmade with the same quality and craftsmanship as the ancient rugs. Stats for Ancient Carpet Carry Bags Trending: Older & Chilly
