Since 1999, Sea Bags has saved over 700 tons of material from going into landfills. Sea Bags are born as sails and transformed into nautically inspired totes and accessories that bring customers great happiness. Their products are upcycled from used sails. They use ecofriendly inks and develop innovative solutions for reducing scrap.
MADE IN USA
Sea Bags are made in the USA. Nothing is imported. Nothing. And that isn’t always easy. Materials come from Maine first, New England second, and USA third. They use one of the last remaining thread manufacturers in the U.S. and one of a few rope manufacturers in New England. And the sail supply chain? Well, that’s as local as it gets. Sea Bags collect sails one at a time through a network of passionate local boaters. Their bags are designed and sewn in a building that hangs over the water. Sea Bags is located on Custom House Wharf in the heart of Portland’s working waterfront. It’s an unconventional location to be sure. But they think the sound of seagulls and the smell of bait from the local lobster boats is an important part of the character of Sea Bags.
Every bag is as rugged as they come and each one is a little different than the next. Each Sea Bag is meticulously designed, sewn, and finished by skilled Maine craftspeople: world-class sewers, artists, graduates of top-notch design schools. The thought, care and skill that goes into each bag is evident. Sea Bags carefully select and cut sails, taking into account unique stitching details, grommet holes and, occasionally, treasures like tell-tales. Each sail panel is completely unique. They hand-splice the rope handles. And skilled stitchers finish the bags with great care.
