Products with history: Sea Through tote bag

July 13, 2018

All our products have history. Before they were remade into bags, laptop cases and wallets, they brought their owners (surfers, sailors, cyclists...) a lot of joy.



I've got this wonderful sail from my friend Rory, who coaches the Irish Olympic sailing team. It sailed at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. After a few more years of use, it became too damaged for professional use. 


Once I started with Loved & Upcycled, Rory was happy to give it to me as he wanted to divert it from sad ending in landfill. I got it plus a sail bag, which I remade into Totes tote bag last year (sorry, all sold out really quick!) 




This year I finally got to process this large and beautiful sail and SeaThrough totes were born.



Trimmed with neon orange detailing and a beige pocket made from dacron and rip-stop from kitesurfing kites, this tote is a perfect companion for a day at the beach. Inspired by the awesome weather we've had in Ireland in last few weeks.
