Rogues Gallery of Portland, Maine may be famous for producing some of the best sail based leather shoes and boots on the market, but what we really like is their focus and celebration of the New England fishing and maritime heritage that surround them in their home city. 

Take for example these excellent tote bags made locally by Rogues Gallery using vintage sails once used on major fishing vessels. The canvas bags are nautically tough using only the finest and strongest materials as they were once used in sailing. The handles on the totes are made from a single piece of sailing rope that wraps itself around the body of the bag giving it even more strength. Available online or at Rogues Gallery on Wharf Pt in Portland, Maine.
