Adventures and Tales of How Sea Bags Are Made

Charting the Past and Present of the Ernestina-Morrissey Schooner

For decades, schooner Ernestina-Morrissey—originally named the Effie M. Morrissey—braved the harsh North Atlantic waters, enduring tempests while hauling bountiful catches of cod during the heyday of the Gloucester Fishermen. Now, Sea Bags has gained access to these sea-worn sails and is pleased to present the latest in our Heritage Collection: The Gloucester Tote.

A Heart Story That Inspires Us

Partnering with the American Heart Association has become a tradition close to our hearts. We seek out partnerships with a personal connection, so the Association's Life is Why™ campaign was a natural choice.

Sending Support to Maui—A Coastal Community in Need

We are heartbroken by the devastation and loss across the islands of Maui and Hawaii. Coastal communities have lost loved ones, homes, and businesses. To bring swift resources to those most impacted, for each limited-edition Hawaii Strong and Maui Strong tote sold we will donate $50 to the Hawai'i Community Foundation's Maui Strong Fund.

The Schooner Roseway

More than a decade ago, Sea Bags was lucky enough to acquire a set of sails from the schooner Roseway. Were thrilled to add its final 100-year-old sails to our Heritage Collection.

Celebrating 25 Years of the TD Beach to Beacon

We're honored to be a part of an iconic Maine event that promotes sustainability, gives back to our community, and celebrates our home state. Entering its 25th year, the TD Beach to Beacon 10K Road Race is observing an impressive milestone, and we're excited to be counting the miles alongside the runners every step of the way.

50th Retail Store Opening - What Makes a Sea Bags Store?

The design of our retail stores mirrors the thoughtful approach to how we handcraft our bags. From preserving the sail's natural beauty and character marks when cutting sails into usable panels, to applying classic and nautical embellishments to the recycled sail cloth, we consider the importance of each design decision. On the cusp of opening our 50th Sea Bags store, we're celebrating the innovative approach to bringing the Sea Bags brand to life in all the places we've made port.
