Handmade locally on the East Coast, the RagBag collection includes holdalls, weekend bags, beach bags and shoppers, as well as deck chairs, placemats, clothing and other homewear. 

Ragbags product range stretches over 5 collections, recycled sailcloth, recycled advertising banner bags, canvas collection, new sailcloth bags and clothing. Each of the Ragbags collections offer something unique. Whether it is a gift for someone special or a bag for a specific requirement, Ragbags can find an answer. Specialising in short runs of bespoke, tailor made bags Ragbags supplies to both companies and individuals alike.

Conscious of the environment, Ragbags eco friendly recycled sail cloth collection and recycled advertising banner bags were developed to reduce the waste in landfill sites and give the material a new lease of life. Quite often the bags include wear and tear from its previous life adding to its character. No two bags are the same, giving each piece its own identity.  Perfect for a day on the water or even a day at the races, a fishing trip or a picnic on the beach, they are the ultimate in seaside-chic. 



UNLEASH YOUR INNER SAILOR!

Inspired by traditional sail makers, RagBags recycled sailcloth products are produced using authentic recycled sailcloth.  Eco Friendly they are ocean-durable but also perfect for any landlubber!  Made to withstand anything from a saltwater dunking to the fiercest of airport baggage handlers, they are ultra-stylish and super-easy to clean.  And because of the nature of sails, the more you use your sailcloth the softer it will become! Even better, they are exceptionally well-priced.

If you've got old sails filling up your loft, you can even customise your own design from any of the products on the website. Your product can be unique with your own sail number and designed to your specification.  And if you have your own design one of our team will work with you to make a truly bespoke product, see examples on our customise page. 
 

LET YOUR CREATIVE JUCIES RUN WILD!

Ragbags canvas collection offers a unique opportunity to design your own bag! Customers can choose all the key elements of the bag including the style, canvas, zip, rope and stitching colour as well as adding your choice of oversized letters or numbers to make the bag totally unique - the possibilities are endless!


THE FIRST STITCH…

New mum Sarah established RagBags in 2010.  Originally based in Hertfordshire, Sarah and her husband Paul found that they were spending most of their time in Essex, where they enjoyed both sailing and racing their Squib, a two-man keelboat.  So in 2007 they moved to Burnham-on-Crouch.  Sarah was by now a Design Team Leader at national training company but her interest in product design was still burning strong, and after a few months of thinking ‘wouldn’t it be cool to make something out of an old sail’, she collected her new heavy duty ‘sail makers’ sewing machine from the Southampton Boat Show.  Encouraged by friends who loved her bags, Sarah started experimenting with different design ideas and RagBags was born.
