Our new Hand-Whipped Rope handles offer a premium look and value to all three Beach Tote sizes. The brass accented, color matched key-fob is an available option.

Think gifts from Boathouse Bags for that sailor, boater, or even the landlubbers on your gift list. Here is twist on our bags:  Nautical hand-whipped cords from another Lake Minnetonka resource: RuggedWrist.

Local artisan Tina Galle produces these by hand and the touch it gives our bags is awesome!  We still offer the earlier version as standard.

Our eco-friendly, unique totes, bags and accessories will add a chic regatta tone with a fun twist to your wardrobe. Created from recycled sails, materials and made in the USA. We are located near the shores of historic Lake Minnetonka in South-central Minnesota.

At Boathouse Bags we design and produce cool, unique bags and accessories out of recycled sails and marine materials. We know we can help keep a lot of hard-to-digest material out of landfills and burners by giving a retirement life to old sails.

You will find us almost every Thursday at the Excelsior Farmer’s Market!
OK… You can’t eat what we produce, but we have a perfect way to get what you buy for your table home with you:
Our Medium Beach Tote is made from used, recycled sailcloth and is pretty much the size of a grocery bag. Being an old sail and having loops of rope supporting it from the bottom means that you are safe with wet loads as well as dry! Look for us from 2 to 6 pm every Thursday afternoon through all of October!  Any other day? Brightwater is right there on Water Street, or check our link for more retailers…
