HISTORY OF CARPET BAG
With the rapid expansion of railroads in America in the 1840-1850s ordinary people were traveling in large numbers, and there was in need for convenient and affordable luggage, so thousands of Carpet Bags were manufactured.
They were made by saddle makers in many town and cities and were many sizes and shape. They were called Carpet Bags because the makers would buy old carpets and construct the bags from the pieces of carpet that were not completely worn out.
By the 1860s Carpet Bags were carried by all most everyone, men and women, middle class and upper middle class. Carpet Bags were the first suitcases made in large numbers. When you traveled during the American Civil War (1861-1865) and though the 1870, you packed your Carpet Bag. This became a way to identify a traveler.
