Eco chic: These bags have seen the high seas

By Bree Coven Brown / Special to Sunday Market

sailbag_1006_630Take nautical style up a notch with a 17 Knots artisan bag.

Seattleite and sailboat racer Shawna Feiling handcrafts each bag from recycled sails, many from boats she’s raced herself.

The hardy fabric is durable and impervious to Seattle rain. A thick, adjustable strap, smooth lining and foam padding add comfort. Oversized decorative numbers or letters can be customized and are available in black, blue, green or red.

At 12 by 14 inches, the sporty, unisex Teesha Journal Bag goes wherever you do. Each bag is custom and ships from Ballard one to two weeks from the date ordered.
