Salty Bag makes hand-crafted travel goods by upcycling decommissioned sails into elegantly designed, reusable fashion accessories.
Salty Bag collects discarded, retired and decommissioned sails and gives them a new life and new value by turning them into unique, elegant and long lasting items for you. Every sail that comes to Salty Bag has a story of its unique life on the seas. Some sails have raced in major championships and moved their crews to great life-moments. Others have offered those who sailed them a well needed respite from a hard year during their holidays, or have cruised to little known coves under starry skies. Some sails come out of storms shredded and weather-beaten.
These are the stories that inspire Salty Bag to make a unique product for you. The world doesn't need another bag, we make sure you get much more than that. The Salty Bag you hold in your hands is made from sails that lived their lives in Greece and the Mediterranean. Every sail comes with its own unique stories, which Salty Bag takes care to collect and bequeath to you. No two Salty Bags are alike. There are differences in texture, color, stitching and aging depending how hard and how often each sail was used. Some Salty Bags come with creases or marks on them. They are not defects. They are the words that write each Salty Bag's unique story. Salty Bag prepares every sail by carefully washing it in the most environmentally responsible way possible.
