Anchor jewelry, star tattoos, boat shoes...the nautical look exists far beyond the sea. Sure it's cool. But it's not the easiest of styles to sport – take it too far and risk looking like Gilligan. Want a safe way to go nautical? Try Ella Vickers’ sailcloth bags. North Carolina-based Vickers has been making virtually-indestructable totes, duffels, and backpacks out of old sails since 1989. They are great for all occasions and keep 20 thousand yards of sailcloth out of the landfills every year. It's a win-win worth a “splice of the mainbrace?" Yeah, we're going to skip the pirate talk and stick with the bags. You should too.
Sailors, log on to www.ellavickers.com to find out how you can send in your own old sail to have it turned into a personalized collection you can tote around all summer long.
