THE SEA BAGS STORY AT BUXTON VILLAGE BOOKS

Sea Bags are born as sails and transformed into nautically inspired totes and accessories that bring our customers great happiness. We believe that sails soak up sun, salt, smiles and adventure. The sail materials retain the essence of what they once were, where they've been and what they've done. It's this previous life that makes each bag unique. Every bag is as rugged as they come and each one is a little different than the next. At Sea Bags, "recycled" and "sustainable" are not afterthoughts. They are the cornerstones the brand.

A GENUINE SEA BAG

Premium quality and craftsmanship using recycled authentic sails results in a timeless and durable tote or accessory piece. Every Sea Bags item is stamped with the registered Sea Bags logo and comes with an authentic hang tag made from our recycled sail. Worldwide, Sea Bags continues to gain the respect and loyalty of customers who strive to support companies with values in line with their own. With this attention often comes the less wanted attention of companies who regularly copy the designs of brands they follow. Sea Bags takes this issue seriously and is committed to protecting our brand and our genuine Sea Bags designs.

EXCLUSIVE TO BUXTON VILLAGE BOOKS

We have an extensive line of custom Sea Bags you can only find here at Buxton Village Books. Designed by us and made for us at Sea Bags in Portland Maine. The image of Cape Hatteras Lighthouse on these custom Sea bags is the perfect marriage of sail and sailors friend.

HANDMADE

Using strict quality guidelines, Sea Bags items are handmade on the working waterfront in Portland, Maine. Because we use real sails, no two bags will be exactly the same. To preserve the character of the sail, appliqués are rarely perfectly centered and individual bags may vary an inch or so in dimension.

RECYCLED SAIL

Key to every Sea Bags item is the sail material used to make them, collected from sailing communities found all over the world. We manufacture with real sails that have been sailed. Because of this, our items may show signs of hard-sailing in the form of rust, salt, or stains. This results in every Sea Bags item being unique, and with a lot of character.
