"Incorporated in 2006, Sea Bags started by making totes and accessories from recycled sails in Portland. Today, the company designs and manufactures a diverse line of totes, bags, and home goods, all made in Maine from recycled sails. CEO Don Oakes, President and COO Beth Shissler and CFO Bill McGonagle have all worked together to grow Sea Bags from just three employees to now more than 140 with 18 retail locations up and down the East Coast, saving over 600 tons of recycled sail cloth from landfills."
Handcrafted from recycled sail cloths from Portland, Maine, these cute wristlets can be worn around the wrist or just stashed in a purse. The nautical chart from Provincetown to Nantucket makes it the perfect gift for the geography teacher who loves a good map.
"Think the Adelie Penguin on the outside is cute? Wait until you see the entire colony printed with eco-friendly ink on the inside. The tote is made from recycled sails collected from Maine boaters, all materials come from the United States, and, like each of the company’s bags, was designed and sewn in a building on the Portland waterfront. The bag isn’t just charming: It was created with care, and designed to last."

"Sea Bags, which is a designer and manufacturer of handmade items that are constructed from recycled sails, has teamed up with Sword & Plough (a veteran-owned company that repurposes military surplus fabric into bags and accessories) to offer a limited-edition collection."
