I love it when old things are new again but only if it's done tastefully. Let's face it- shabby chic could be renamed "Chic or Shitty" because it either works or it doesn't. Sea Bags, however, totally gets it right! They handcraft brand new tote bags out of old recycled sails. The bags are ultra durable (with beautiful numbers) and symbols and they are a great alternative to the LL Bean bags that EVERYONE has.
It's really neat to realize that before the bag makes it's way into your hands- it's already sailed around the world. Plus there's something about carrying around a recycled sail that makes you feel nautical-- even if your are inland. Love it! Get your own bag to love here: http://seabags.com/index.php.
