Sailor Made. Built in the USA.

Traditional Seabags & Ditty Bags. Guaranteed Highest Quality.

Welcome to M&B SHIPCANVAS! Founded by sailors Ed Morris and Steve Barth, we produce traditional rigging and canvas for ships and yachts, plus hand-built seabags and ditty bags for the crew. Nothing here is mass-produced - Each bag is built to withstand the extremes of everyday use at sea and ashore, using only the finest and most seaworthy materials including real duck canvas, oil-tanned leather and vintage New England rope.

Each bag is created to be its own masterpiece, upholding the finest traditions of American sailmaking and leathercraft. Each one comes with its own serial number, heat-branded leather badge and a signed builder's certificate. More importantly, each one is built to provide a lifetime of use and enjoyment, and our workmanship is fully backed through a written Lifetime Warranty. Buy it once and keep it forever... that's the idea.

Quality bags are not cheap, but ours are priced several times lower than if you were to have one built by your local sailmaker. We guarantee the value of each bag, as well as your total 100% satisfaction with our 30-day, no-hassle return policy.

Looking for something special? We can usually accommodate alternate color requests, custom ropework & splicing, monogramming, and even vegan (leather-free) bag construction. Most custom projects are completed within 3-5 days, and we ship worldwide. Please contact Ed Morris for fast, friendly quotes...
