About

THE VIBE:

Saltfish Surf Co. is a Venice Beach-based lifestyle brand inspired by the ocean and the passion of traveling. The motivation behind the brand is to bring new surf accessories blending functionality, aesthetic and sustainability.

THE INSPIRATION:

I wanted to create accessories that I could relate to. I wanted to find a way to use fabrics collected around the globe to make a positive change in the world. I believe I could come up with a line of bags and accessories different than what is already available on the market. Aesthetically and environmentally conscious, with a focus on functionality, allowing surfers, beach goers, urban travelers and adventurers to proudly and easily carry their belongings to their favorite location.

 THE CONCEPT: 

Traveling around the world, working with local communities and finding unique textiles, all Saltfish Surf Co. bags are handcrafted by artisans in small workshops, not in large factories. I take pride in using sustainable production methods that reduce waste and conserve energy, while giving back to small communities by providing them with jobs, fair wages and a creative outlet.

THE SLING/TOTE BAG:

The Saltfish Surf Co. Sling Bag is easy and unobtrusive, and can carry a surfboard comfortably, while doubling as a tote. Use it off the beach to hold a yoga mat, or logs for your post-surf bonfire at night. Interior pockets provide storage for your gear and valuables, keeping them close at hand.


The construction of the bag is designed for function and utility, evenly distributing the weight of the board for easy carriage. It’s the perfect bag for your daily beach goings or if you have a little bit of a hike to get to that “secret” surf spot.

Saltfish Surf Co. bags and accessories are made to be enjoyed by the beach, in the city, on your next surf trip or on your daily beach goings.

SPECS:
  • Designed in California / Assembled in Mexico
  • Size: 13″x18″
  • Outside: handwoven Oaxacan rug / Leather from Guadalajara, Mexico
  • Lining: 12oz canvas / heavyweight pellon
  • Straps: 1"1/2 wide / 14” drop/leather
  • Straps on straps: 1”1/2 wide / 10” long / adjustable length with 2 antique brass snap buttons / hold skateboard, towel, umbrella…
  • Stitching: heavy-duty waterproof thread
  • Hardware: antique brass D hook / swivel / snap button / magnetic snap button
  • Inside fin / wax / key pocket: 12oz canvas / leather / magnetic snap button

NOT JUST SURFBOARDS!

The versatility of the sling/tote bag is as vast as your imagination or needs. It can fit a lot more than just a surfboard; yoga mat, skateboard, wood logs for your bonfire, flowers from the farmer's market, baguettes...

Yoga mats are the second most used items for the sling/tote bag as it conveniently holds your yoga mat as well as your yoga outfit and everything else you need in the tote compartment.

THE MANUFACTURING:

Each bag is assembled by hand in Mexico, made from hand-woven Oaxacan wool rugs that are organically-dyed using natural elements such as berries, moss, tree barks, then finished using foot-powered looms. I also use premium vegetable-dyed leather from Mexico. No plastic or harsh chemicals are ever used in the design process.

Due to the handmade nature of the bag, each piece will be unique.

The Military tote bag:

Made out of re-purposed military duffle bag, this big tote bag is extremely solid and functional. A big interior pocket made out of vintage blankets and serapes is very useful to separate your small belongings.

Take it to the beach, to the grocery store or as your favorite daily tote bag

Risks and challenges

As you saw in the video, I have a great manufacture and amazing people waiting to go on production, however, the most common risk in manufacturing is production delays. The manufacturing process relies on multiple components coming together at the same time. While I am very well versed in managing production and delivering on-time, there is always the possibility of a slight delay. However, I will be providing updates every step of the way to keep you fully informed.
