GO GREEN--Preppy Style

I was invited to a trunk show on facebook for these amazing bags made from recycled sails! I've thought of making a bag out of our old jib from our boat back home but a) was laughed at and b) don't have a heavy duty sewing machine, just a regular one. Anyway, the company is called Ella Vickers started by Ella, who was first mate in the Americas cup, made the bags for herself and the company took off from there! She makes all kinds of bags, shower curtains, dog beds, yoga bags, etc. And, they're made in the USA--good for the shakey US economy! SCORE.

Going "green" has never been so easy with these Ella Vickers Handbags!!! They are so casual and trendy. Perfect for the beach and travel. Best of all, they are made from recycled sail cloths and eco-friendly materials!
