Knots, yachts, anchors and orcas -- themes from the sea have been making a splash on everything from soap and jewelry to walls and tea towels. Part Herman Melville, part Thurston Howell III, the maritime motifs run the range from old-timey to preppy kitsch. With these nifty nautical finds from Etsy, you can indulge your inner sea captain or pin-up sailorette -- all handmade or sustainable style. Anchors away!
