~ I Love My Sea Bag! ~
Sea Bags of Portland, Maine
Sea Bags is a company located in the heart of Portland, Maine’s working waterfront. This fantastic company designs handcrafted tote bags and accessories out of recycled sails from boats. This unique company produces quality handmade products whose sails are 100% recycled, and the craftsmanship is like no other sail product. Their stores are in Portland and Freeport, Maine. You can of course order any of their wonderful products online. They have wine bags, tote bags, and even products for the home! The quality of their products is absolutely amazing! I was lucky enough to visit their store in Freeport, Maine during our vacation, so I got see all the products first hand.
The tote I own is the large Retro and Chic Anchor Bag. I can fit everything I need for the pool and/or beach in it! It’s also great for the gym, traveling, or toting around my many books! The bag is so durable and classy looking. I get compliments on it everywhere I go! I especially love the handle which is made from hand spliced rope.

  120. I love the fact that re-cycled sails are used for these. Also, if you look at the photo closely, you can see the handle does not end at the bag, but continues on down the bag. Both of these things mean these bags can take the kind of daily use & abuse people like me put them thru…Enjoyed seeing the shop too; I’ll not get to maine any time soon!
