Eco Find of the Day: Sailcloth Tote Bags and Duffles by Red Flag Design

This post was written by guest contributor Jess Chamberlain, a Seattle-based writer whose love of good design is second only to her passion for environmentally friendly living. Look for her posts on our blog.
(AUM_Recycled Sailcloth Original Tote: $210)I'm thrilled that the environmentally friendly product industry has evolved so far from hemp boho-style handbags to include modern designs with surprising recycled materials and sustainable values—like many of the goods I've been blogging about his month.

That said, I also love when a product made with reclaimed materials is still reminiscent of its former life—but recreated for use of a totally different kind. One example: these bags, made from recycled sailcloth, by Vancouver-based Red Flag Design. Each piece in its "Alternate Use Material" (AUM) line is one of a kind.
(Large AUM_Recycled Sailcloth Duffle: $285)The company's mission statement reads: "We’re interested in redefining the boundaries of high-end sewn goods, challenging consumers to reconsider what 'recycled' means."

Amen.
