From the coast to the cottage, sailcloth is getting a new use. Originally designed to meet the tough standards of sailors and protect against sun, wind and surf, it is now being incorporated into pillows, placemats, decorative bags and more.
A company called SailorBags, leaves out the resins and chemicals that make sailcloth stiff, but keep in the qualities that are important — durable and resistant to water, stains and abrasion, and pleasant to touch. Classic zigzag navy/red stitching combined with rugged hardware and water-resistant linings make them fashionable yet functional for carrying personal items.
They also offer many items for the home or cottage with the practical and decorative Sailcloth Bucket Bags. They can be used for carrying small items like seashells, guest towels, flowers, fruit and more. Light enough for “little captains” that want to lug their beach/bath toys to and from the sand. Available in white, blue and red. I also love their Pillow Covers - Great for cottages and adding a special touch to a porch or deck. No more soggy pillows when they are covered in water repelling sailcloth. Use embroidery to carry out a decorating theme, or add a personal touch with a name/initials. Available in white w/blue trim, small and large. They also offer great great handbags for moms with some of my favorites being the Sailcloth Messenger Bag, the Sailcloth Family Electronics Bag, the Sailcloth Duffel Purse and the cute Sailcloth Small Zipper Purse.· I love the subtle style of these bags that are embroidered with an anchor, crab, lobster, ship's wheel or lighthouse and personalized text. I also love how durable they are as they held all of my essentials and never strained my back. It was the ultimate bag for a mom on the go.
