About Sea Bags
t Sea Bags we design and handcraft tote bags and accessories from recycled sails that have sailed around the world. Once a sail, forever a Sea Bag.
Our materials come from Maine first, New England second and USA third. We use the last remaining thread manufacturer in the U.S. We use the only rope manufacturer in New England. And our sail supply chain? Well, that's as local as it gets. We collect our sails one at a time through a network of passionate boaters who love our community waters as much as we do.
Our bags are designed and sewn in a building that hangs over the water. We're located on Custom House Wharf in the heart of Portland's working waterfront. It's an unconventional location to be sure. But we think the sound of seagulls and the smell of bait from the local lobster boats is an important part of the character of our bags.
