Sag+Sal bags & accessoires are made of used printing blankets. The combination of materials and construction makes Sag+Sal the only label of its kind. Each bag is created from a single piece, cut and folded ingeniously, fastened with book binding screws and embellished with furniture strapping. What you get is an upcycled, aesthetically pleasing, unique and super strong bag with not a stitch in sight.
These blankets, constructed from two layers of rubber and one of linen, are the high end material used in offset printing presses and once their life on the press is over, form the perfect, durable base for our bags. Another cool characteristic is the latent images imprinted on the blankets during their time on the press. This means every Sag+Sal product is a unique combination of colour, typography, imagery and texture.
The Sag+Sal name is the combination of the first three letters of each of our mothers’ birth names.
