Susan Hoff got the idea for creating beach totes made from old sails from her day job manning the decks of sailboats, work Hoff did for 14 years. Sails are ultra-durable and often come in amazing colors, and what better way to reuse them than to make some cool waterproof beach totes?

Susan Hoff doesn't limit herself to sails; she's also taken old horse reins and fashionable kimonos to create her totes. The beach bags are fashionable and cute, making them the perfect accessory for your day at the beach. What a great idea! Stats for Upcycled Sail Totes Trending: Older & Chilly
