What Are
Vintage Bags?

Cut from the 'sweet spot' of the sail, our Vintage selections feature mainsail insignia logos from the sails that spent their life on the water. These vintage markings can range from numbers and letters to mainsail logos and nautical shapes. Some vintage markings are popular like those of the J-boats, where some others are so rare, that we may only ever see one of its kind in our shop.

Recycled into handcrafted totes and accessories on the working waterfront in Portland, Maine, these durable products are machine washable. Because each sail is individually cut and handcrafted into the finished product, every Vintage bag is unique and irreplaceable. New bags are added weekly and there’s only one of each!

Every sail has a journey

We make sure that journey never ends.
