The new Not for Navigation line of canvas bags makes it possible for you to have the nautical chart of your choice custom silk-screened onto one of any number of bag types. All bags are made from natural cotton canvas, and more than a dozen different styles are available, including smaller messenger bags, totes, duffels, ditty bags and wine holders. Silk-screened pillows are also available. The bags are available for individual purchase, or custom group orders can be made for regattas, weddings, corporate retreats or other events.

The designs themselves are extremely well made—nearly as crisp as the originals. For more information, click here.
