This Sea Bags Chickadee Tote is a collaboration that is inspired by the March 1962 Down East magazine cover art by Stell and Shevis. It is a classic Maine chickadee and pine design celebrating our Maine state bird and tree!
Sea Bags is one of Maine’s most iconic brands. Its one-of-a-kind totes and accessories—hand-stitched from recycled sails on Portland’s working waterfront—embody the values of sustainability, independence, and entrepreneurship that are at the heart of the Maine ethos. That’s why Sea Bags made the perfect partner for Down East, which has been celebrating the stories of Maine for the past 60 years.
Medium size: 14” h x 5.5” w x 14” l
Hand-spliced hemp rope handles.
Care: machine wash, line dry.
Each Sea Bags tote has a secret pocket in the seam between the handle.
Included in each bag is Down East magazine’s quote:
“We don’t pretend that we can define this evocative term Down East. To attempt to crack the mystery of what those things are that make a Downeaster different from a Texan or a Hoosier would be as unavailing as pondering the imponderables. All we can honestly say is that we are tuned to this particular parcel of earth, and that we like its music.” — Duane Doolittle, founder of Down East Magazine
