WHY IS EVERY BAG UNIQUE?
Our bags and accessories are truly unique items: they are all crafted by hand from repurposed kitesurfing, windsurfing and sailboat sails. Each sail has its own history and distinctive look, which our team uses as a starting point for creating vibrant new products. Parts for each bag are cut by hand from individual sails, one sail at a time, and the possible combinations of patterns and color are nearly infinite. We hope you’ll enjoy your unique handmade and sustainable Mafia bag.
WHY ARE YOU USING REUSED MATERIALS?
We started with a basic idea: make something new from a really durable, versatile, colorful material that cannot be recycled using conventional methods. Our first bags were made to carry our wetsuits, and we discovered that not only did they function well, but looked great and had the potential to create positive change in our environment.
HOW DO I CLEAN MY BAG?
Cleaning your Mafia bag is simple. Fill the sink or bathtub with cool to lukewarm water. Do not use hot water; it could damage your pack. Add a gentle detergent or natural soap to the water and move your backpack around vigorously in the water. Use an old toothbrush for extra cleaning on problematic spots. Drain the soapy water from the tub and then refill it with clean water to rinse it. Finally, hang your bag to air dry, opening all of the compartments and pockets, to prevent odors. For drying a shady but open space is best, as direct sunlight can cause your bag’s colors to fade. Machine washing your MAFIA bag is NOT recommended as the zippers, webbings and buckles might be damaged.
DO THE LAPTOP SLEEVES ONLY FIT MACS?
No. They are custom made for Macs, but other 13” laptops will also fit.
WHERE DOES MAFIABAGS GET ALL ITS SAILS FROM?
We have built relationships with sailors and athletes from around the world to be able to gather all the material we need to create the unique bags and accessories in our shops. We love to capture the great adventures these sailors and athletes share about these sails going into our workshop.
ARE ALL COMPONENTS OF A MAFIA BAG MADE FROM REUSED SAILS?
Repurposed sails represent 80% of our raw materials. Not every element in our bags is made from sails; we also use some new materials to make our products. Webbings, backpack fabric and buckles are new. We source these products thoughtfully from local suppliers in the US.
