Sea Bags is a Maine-based company providing handbags, accessories, home decor, and theme-inspired collections. The bags themselves are made in Maine from recycled sails, hence the name “Sea Bags.” Each Sea Bag is meticulously fashioned and sewn by a skilled craftsperson from Maine. These craftspeople include local artists, design school graduates, and world-class sewers who bring their creative perspectives to the process. Sea Bags needed a technology partner who could provide them a greater ability to scale and increase the reliability of their uptime in order to handle that scalability.
