sail away with this fashionable bag

People always amaze me with their creativity...their resourcefulness. Check out this fun bag made by Ella Vickers...recycled sails that once were discarded are now a fashion statement. This bag is great because of the waterproof nature of the cloth...and even chocolate milk (don't ask) washes out in a snap.

Here's what Ella shares about her bags:

Ella Vickers Recycled Sailcloth Collection is the most refined & quality built on the market. Our pieces are made from authentic recycled/reclaimed yacht sails. They are Green/Eco Friendly, Urban Chic, and Ocean Durable. All items are handcrafted in the USA using yachts sails from around the world, saving 20 thousand yards of sailcloth from the landfill each year. Inspired by her days of sailing as first mate on a classic Americas Cup winner, Ella made herself a set of bags from a discarded sail. When regatta guests bought them right off her arm, a company was born. The durable and sophisticated designs reflect the nautical lifestyle with crisp white Dacron Sailcloth and hi-performance Kevlar Sailcloth. This gorgeous, urban-chic collection ranges from the small cocktail cache to the functional tote messenger and the ocean durable duffel. Experience the spirit of the sail reborn into fresh shapes for a new adventure!

While on vacation, I received so many compliments for this you have the source!
