Over Labor Day weekend, I travelled to Newport, Rhode Island for a friend's wedding.  It was a wonderful affair set against a gorgeous scenic background.  Newport is known for its coastal scenery, architecture, delicious seafood, and for the hundreds of sailboats that dot their coastline. While I took in the beauty of the town and engaged heartily in the eating department, I did not take advantage of the sea-faring opportunities.  Unfortunately, boats and I don't get along very well.

I couldn't help but appreciate the beauty of the boats, though, and was delighted to come across these bags and products made from recycled sail cloth by the company Re-Sails.

The bags below aren't made of sail cloth but carry the same graphic punch. I especially like the idea of having a different initial bag for each person in your household. Talk about personalizing your bags in a bold way!

Here's what the collection looked like in the store I spotted them in.  Aren't they super fun?

They feel perfectly nautical and Newport-y to me.  What a great way to keep the memory of a very fun weekend close at hand.
