As you walk in the door you're greeted by a wall of bags, but they are not just any kind of bag that you can buy just anywhere, they're Sea Bags! Sea Bags, whose motto is "Once a Sail, Forever A Sea Bag", are bags made from recycled sails. Transformed into nautically themed totes, accessories and more, Sea Bags inspire you to think about the sea and make you feel like you are there.
According to Sea Bags, sails soak up sun, salt, smiles and adventure, so that would naturally carry over into their unique bags and products. All the sails come from the United States, starting with Maine, where Sea Bags originated. The sails come from local boaters who use the community water right there on Portland's working waterfront, where Sea Bags are designed and sewn. Every bag has its own unique character and some even come with their very own story.
Because Sea Bags are recycled, they are also sustainable, which are the cornerstones of the brand. They use ecofriendly inks and as much of the material as possible, and since 1999, they saved over 700 tons of material from going into landfills.
Need a beach bag, cooler, pet pouch, travel bag or just an everyday bag for errands around town, you'll find it at Sea Bags. You'll also find a variety of designs from maps, marine life, mermaids, pets, stripes, anchors, and so much more. Chances are, when you visit Sea Bags you'll find not only what you need, but what you like in a heavy duty, durable bag, plus, you can even customize your own.
So don't be surprised if you feel the wind in your hair and the salt on your skin as you sail through one of Barefoot Landing's newest and more unique shops, Sea Bags, located across from Wee R. Sweetz, and on the water of course.
