24 Custom House Wharf, Portland, ME 04101, United States
Adrien Glover

Fittingly located just steps from the water’s edge on Custom House Wharf, this busy studio-cum-retail shop makes one thing: sporty, one-of-a-kind totes sewn from recycled racing sails. Launched in 1999 by Hannah Kubiak and Beth Shissler, the company is riding a wave of success by creating a new breed of stylish “Maine-made” products. Sold in three sizes, the crinkly white or off-white bags made from Dacron and Kevlar are emblazoned with colorful graphic insignia designs—numbers, stars, and nautical anchor icons; each is finished with hand-spliced rope handles and is, of course, water resistant.
