Wear a Piece of History

Leatherworkers craft the bags from heirloom kilim rugs, traditionally woven by women in anticipation of their wedding. After being damaged by moths, mice or overuse, some rugs are recycled into handbags or shoes. The purse connects the owner to the woman who wove the fabric 50 to 60 years ago.
