Don’t let the brand name fool you.
Mafia bags don’t literally mean that the Mafia is involved, but it does relate to the creator of the bags, Marcos Mafia.
These bags are made of recycled sails. Yeah, that’s right, sails meaning from the nautical standpoint of water sports. In Mafia’s world, these sails came from his professional kitesurfing.
According to an interview with The Manual, Marcos Mafia and his sister, Paz, noticed that they had a lot of used sails from his kitesurfing and that they didn’t have space in their bags when they traveled.
That’s when the siblings realized that they could help the environment and fix their problem of packing in one smooth business move.
Mafia bags are now all the rage, and you can get one of them here.
Talk about smooth sailing.
