Build Your Perfect Bag

Here is our step by step guide on how to build your perfect Oarsum Bag

Sailcloth Colours Options

We mainly use white, recycled sails which have been washed and quality checked. In addition for some items  you have a choice of coloured sailcloth – for example if you are buying a wash bag you are able to choose the colour of both sides

There are 9 sailcloth colours – Navy Blue, Light Blue, Red, British Racing Green, Pink, Purple, Black, Grey, Orange and Yellow.

Sailing Canvas Options

In some bags we reinforce the sailcloth bags by adding a water resistant coloured sailing canvas. For example when building your weekend bag you have the choice of a coloured canvas base and ends to give the bag more structure. Some bags are completely made from canvas.

The are 9 canvas colours - Navy Blue, Light Blue, Red, Racing Green, Purple, Black, Grey, Orange and Yellow.
