American Product Review: Recycled Sailcloth Bags by Ella Vickers

Catamaran Guru met some of the staff of Ella Vickers Sailcloth Collection at their booth at the Annapolis Sailboat Show 2015. We were amazed at the variety of styles from spacious totes to duffels to classy purses to even wine bags! You can even send them your own sail for a custom bag just for you! And, of course, they are all made right here in the USA. Check out video of Jed who showed us a few of the styles they were selling in the booth.

Ella, an accomplished sail racer and enthusiastic cruiser, started out in 1998 while sailing as first mate aboard Columbia (yes, the first 12-meter yacht to win the America's Cup). In between racing seasons, she began making useful things out of some discarded sails. The idea and then the business were born. They have recycled 10,000 sails into 100,000 useful and stylish bags for travel and fashion. They also make products for pets, home, and accessories like scarves and wallets.
