Since its start in 2005, Sea Bags has spawned a number of imitations, but unlike its competitors Sea Bags still uses only retired sails for its durable, handmade totes and accessories.
Now the Portland, Maine-based brand has partnered with fellow East Coast company, Woolrich, marrying its weathered nylon with the Pennsylvania heritage brand’s venerable wools to create a small collection of large tote bags, dopp kits and iPad cases in three plaid variations (Forest, Harvest and Lodge).
Totes come in various combinations of wool bodies with sail interiors and sail shells lined with wool, as well as a few styles comprising nylon blocked with leather on the outside and Woolrich plaid on the inside.
Like the repurposed sails, the Woolrich fabric and leather come from dead stock supply procured by Sea Bags, so it’s a limited edition in the truest sense—when they run out of scraps, the line is finished.
