What: Sea Bags
Why: When I first saw them, I thought they were summer-fabulous. They're also eco-friendly, as each bag is made from a recycled sail. The ropes are hand spliced, which is apparently the "nautical skill" that sets Sea Bags apart from the other nautical looks we've seen this season. What's even better is they come in small, medium and large sizes, instead of offering a one-size-fits-all approach like so many other totes I've seen.
Then logic kicked in. It's the end of August, what need do I have for a summer bag? Almost thoroughly convinced to let the bag wait until next season, I happened upon the justification I needed. The limited edition line, Sea Bags for a Cure.
For each bag purchased from this limited edition version of the bag, half of the proceeds are donated to the Maine Women's Cancer Fund at the Maine Cancer Foundation. There are only 200 of these bags in each size though, so get yours while supplies last.
And if pink ribbons aren't your thing, you can always try one of the other cute versions available:
