Here's a novel idea: Sea Bags, a company in Portland, Maine, makes bags out of recycled sails. They're not exactly cheap—the small anchor tote on the right is $95—but they're one-of-a-kind, and certainly cost less than the latest "it" bag. Plus, when you consider the good that each nautical bag is doing for the environment and the community, we feel it's worth it.
Spoke to a fellow sailor yesterday and mentioned these bags. turns out she has one and said they are very sturdy and well worth the extra cash. her husband noted that they don't only come in standard white, but some of them have contrasting designs made from other materials, depending on the type of sails used. who knew?
good to know! apparently Martha Stewart is a big fan of these bags, too, so very New England
new england? aaarrgghh. any good pirate will tell you the lure of the high seas is so powerful it travels with you everywhere, savvy?
Alright Jack Sparrow, you'll have to forgive a land-lovin' Midwest native. What certainly says "new england" to us is a love of the sea, tradition and making something old new again.
continuing this thread, can you recommend any places which carry pirate-themed articles of clothing at a reasonable price? i remember forever 21 used to carry a long-sleeve t with a skull-and-crossbones design. can't seem to find anything anywhere.
