Eco-minded and durable upcycled products
Our line of products is all proudly manufactured from carefully selected re-used sails, canvas & other recycled/upcycled materials. Every product is one-of-a-kind and custom made with love. Recycled never looked so awesome and fun!
Great news, we ship abroad:
If you don’t have a chance to come to our beautiful island yourself to see our collection first hand, don’t worry, we can ship abroad. Send us an email, which product(s) you are interested in, so we can find the perfect one-of-a-kind bag for you in our stock.
These sturdy bags are perfect for everyday use and one of our customers all time favorite. Use it as a handbag or maybe even as a small diaper bag.
Made from repurposed sails with a thick canvas bottom, webbing handles and always a surprising cotton inner liner. Some are even extra special: they might have a logo or an original number from a sail on them!
The sails we use have traveled around the world, we carefully select the pieces and create this spacious beach bag with two smaller inside pockets. Some of them still have an original detail of the previous sail on them, like a number or cool graphic logo. They are sturdy, washable and well finished with fun colored binding. There even is a possibility to switch out different handles and buy an additional set.
This perfect sized travel companion is multi-functional, whether you want to use it for toiletries or use it as a wet bikini bag after a day out on the water. We use upcycled pieces from our outdoor canvas projects and line these awesome bags with fun and eye-catching oilcloth to make them spill proof. Our doppkitts come in all different color schemes. Whether you like hot pink, cool blue or maybe you prefer something more neutral: we’ve got you covered!

We have created this line of products to minimize and reduce the waste we produce within our company. We also welcome your donations of old sails and kites and other similar materials. If they are in good condition come by our workshop at the boatyard in Hato, and we happily receive them. In return, we’d gladly compensate you in a fitting way by offering you a discount on, or have you choose something from our collection.

Help us keep Bonaire Beautiful and let us transform them instead!
We try to give back to the island, by working together with local (non-profit and/or NGO) organizations such as the Sea Turtle Conservation Bonaire, for whom we create the hats in their Hat Tag Program. STCB sells these hats to raise funds.
We also participate with the Bonaire Sailing School Association. For the BSSA we repair and alter their teaching sails for free.
Bonaire has a Special Needs Education, called SLP Bonaire. The SLP is part of Scholen Gemeenschap Bonaire. The SLP takes in children who are intellectually and/or physically challenged and have extreme difficulties learning. With help from their teachers, the students develop their goals and future perspectives. One of their lovely students, Janin Andrade, has an internship with Phish Phaktory in the familiair surroundings of his school. Janin is recycling leftover foam from our finished projects. We use Janin’s hand-shredded pieces to fill throw cushions, made from recycled kite fabrics.
