Reclaim, Reuse, Recycle: Reiter8! Reiter8 tote bags are made from upcycled sail boat sails!

Each tote begins with a carefully chosen piece of sailboat sail that is cut and cleaned. This tote features an authentic (came on the sail) red number 3 that wraps around the bottom of that bag and has been stitched down to reinforce placement over time. The numbers are frayed and wonderfully worn from their time with the sun, wind and water. Also from the original sail is a small stripe that runs horizontally across the top of the front of this tote.

This durable bag is fully lined with navy organic cotton canvas. Red trim finishes the inside pocket which is divided into 3 sections and is the perfect size for keeping all your small stuff organized and accessible. I sew each bag with reinforced thread, which creates strength in every seam.

The 21” long red nylon webbing strap is folded over and stitched to create a stiff rounded handle. The handle has been securely attached with reinforced stitching on the inside and outside of the bag.

Dimensions: approx 14.5 x 15 with a 3" deep box bottom - big enough to accommodate most laptops (great fit for my MacBook Pro) and perfect for the market, school or beach. Reiter8 bags are easy to take care of: machine wash cold and line dry.
