SEA BAGS

There’s nothing we love more at Inhabitat than seeing waste materials recycled into innovative new pieces. That’s why we were super excited to come across Sea Bags [1], a small company in Maine that recycles old sails into super cute nautical tote bags.



The question “Where do all the old sails go? weighed heavy on the minds of two young entrepreneurs on the Atlantic shores of Maine. (Strangely this thought has never occurred to me). With this concern for reducing waste in mind, the founders reappropriated the rugged elegance of the sail to create the best hand crafted bag around.

Sea Bags look very practical and sturdy, and are sure to give you that “Captains Club” look. The bags come in three sizes and can be ordered directly from the Maine-based company via phone or email > [2]
