Rare & Unusual Bags Accessories Objects

The bags are made of “sea fortune” sails in dacron scrambled by the salty storms of furious winds, sometimes just touched by light breezes, whitened by morning mists, who knows ? In the spirit of Slowdesign, since 1995, we recycle genoa sails, mainsails, trinchettes, tormentines, “grand hunier volant”, colored spinnakers: Creatures that emerged from chemistry mutated into relations de voyages.
The world of the “Outdoor”
