‘Carpet Bags’ Use Portland Airport Design

It’s hard to walk through the Portland airport and not marvel at the crazy carpet, already memorialized on Instagram and even a pair of KEEN shoes. Now the 70’s throwback pattern is on bags, too.


The designers at Blaqpaks had the iconic carpet pattern printed on Cordura and set about crafting bags from it.


The packs come in shapes and sizes ranging from a zipper pouch to a 17 liter roll-top backpack, all accented with Portland airport carpet patterns.

Fittingly, the packs and bags are handmade in Portland and have a lifetime warranty.

These will likely be a limited run so if you’re looking to outfit yourself with the most iconic airport carpet around, swing over to Kickstarter and pick one up.

Prices range from $22 (for the zipper sack) to $320 (for the 17 liter Kagero).
