Spring Comes Slowly in Maine
It comes this time of year when we realize elsewhere crocus are probably starting appear as a part of spring. Meanwhile, in Maine, we patiently wait a little longer before the purple harbingers peek from beneath the snow. We know March and April and some of May as Mudseason and the precursor to our beloved summer.
Around the shop during the winter months, we embarked on expeditions to the sail loft to comb through our extensive collection of the recycled sails. We spent quality time identifying the best pops of colors, such as tangerine, teal, lemon or purple to use as accents this season. Most sails are white so colored Dacron is rare.
FRESH COLOR. Everyday life in Maine is colorful as evidenced by the pop of color on this fishing boat’s bottom. This season we will use rare colored Dacron, inspired by Maine summers.
BOLD GRAPHICS. Anyone can wear a chunky necklace or an oversized bangle. We capture the beauty in authentic maritime images. These silkscreened, uplifting torus-shaped chain links are straight from the working waterfront.
At Sea Bags, regardless of the temperature outside our seasonal excitement is heating up pending the release of our spring/summer line of products, all handcrafted from repurposed sailcloth.
