Made in Brooklyn: Bags From Recycled Sails

Reiter8 is a Brooklyn-based company that we love. The owner/designer, Katherine Rasmussen, makes very stylish and durable bags and pillows out of recycled sails, each with its own unique stripe, logo, mark or number. The pricing is reasonable with a large messenger bag costing $125, tote bags $65-$75, pillows $48 and mini wallets for $8.

Reiter8 is available at various domestic retail outlets and online through Etsy. And for you sailboat owners with old, unused and unloved sails in storage: donate them to Reiter8 and get a custom bag made from your sail.
