Welcome to OARSUM

 

Welcome to OARSUM, the home of "Build a Bag".  Based in the heart of England we hand make highly creative yet practical products using recycled sailcloth. Each item will have a nautical feel and is unique. In addition you have the option to personalise with initials, images or national flags to give it its own individuality, along with its practical waterproofing and durable qualities.

All products are stitched by using the traditional sail maker zigzag stitch and using genuine sail maker thread. All handles are made from high quality webbing or nautical rope to provide extra strength and support. The dimensions are approximations and the pictures shown give a reflection of the style of each product. All our products are unique and handmade to order in Nether Wallop, England.

All recycled sailcloth is washed before we carefully select areas to use in our products, and we incorporate the features and small blemishes within the cloth, such as rivets or patterns, to create our unique designs and to reflect its nautical history.

Ordering Products

All products are hand made to order. Once an order has been received allow 14 days for delivery. All payments are taken via Paypal including credit cards. Or for help or any questions call 01264 781 665

Upcoming Events

Just a note to say that our lovely windbreak arrived yesterday and we are really thrilled with it! Thank you so much for getting it off so promptly. Much appreciated! We can't wait to get it down to our beach hut at Wells next the Sea. Thank you again awesome Oarsum!

I have just opened the post and I am writing to thank you for Simon's bag, SMB.  I have to say he is very pleased with it and I thank you for making it right.
Really, a  huge, HUGE thank you.
I wish you well and thank you again.  I am happy to recommend such an outstanding level of customer service, which, sadly, is all too rare these days.  I shall definitely return for more.
May you go far - or even further!
Very best wishes, and thanks again.

I just received the bag I ordered for my son with the British and Indian flags. It looks fantastic and I hope my son gets years of use from it.
Thanks to Mr Griffiths for the advice at the Cranbrook Fair for advising on colours.
Best wishes,
