Upcycled Sail Duffle Bag

Regular price £0.00 £85.00 Sale

Made from deaccessioned sails from the Royal Museums Greenwich collection, this spacious duffle bag is lightweight and extremely durable. Set off on a journey to work or the beach with a piece of maritime history.

As part of the museum’s disposal process we have had the sails upcycled in the UK into handmade bags. Each bag is unique and shows characteristics of its former life.  The bag is then finished with contrast stitching and a strong webbing shoulder strap.

Dimensions: H50cm x D25cm

Washable: wipe clean only

Made in Great Britain

A perfect gift for any sailing enthusiast. The brown fabric comes from sails made by Lapthom and Ratsey Ltd, 1949. They were made for a small Cadet Class 180 vessel. The lighter fabric comes from a main sail for a Merlin 116 and was probably given to the Museum as a spare for its Merlin No 2 vessel.

These items are crafted by expert bag makers on Topsham quay, Devon. The sail has completed its journey from the sea to studio and is ready to start a new life as an original bag.
