We Are Sailing, Sailing: Aum Totes

We've covered a boatload (heh) of bags and totes made from retired sails in our day (count'em: uno, dos, tres, cuatro, cinco), but the Circles and Stripes AUM (Alternate Use Materials) totes by Vancouver-based Red Flag Design blow their competition clear out of the water.

Made with reclaimed sailcloth and reinforced with reclaimed marine-grade rubber, each $198 shoulder tote also comes with sennet-knotted nylon handles attached using enameled metal grommets. Includes a zippered pouch for stowing your tackle. ::Branch Home
