Take a look at The Old Salt Loft’s recent case studies to see our work in action.
The Old Salt Loft started life as ‘Ragbags’ – a bag manufacturer founded by new Mum Sarah in 2010 following her family’s relocation to coastal Essex.
Sarah’s original business concept was inspired by her love of sailing and her desire to ‘make something out of an old sail’ – Sarah became the proud owner of a heavy-duty ‘sail makers’ sewing machine from the Southampton Boat Show. She loved the versatility and heritage of the sail materials and soon attracted a local following for her up-cycled sail bag designs.
As her children grew older Sarah was able to dedicate more time to the business and Ragbags organically grew in to The Old Salt Loft – a specialist design and production company producing branded products, corporate clothing, poster printing, embroidered items and even bespoke wallpaper. Today The Old Salt Loft works across a diverse range of projects for its local, national and global clients – including the British Sailing Team, Land Rover BAR and HCP.
Sarah is delighted that to this day, she still receives emails from her early customers about their original ‘Ragbags’, and the sailcloth bags remain a popular product in the Old Salt Loft portfolio. When she’s not busy running the business – Sarah oversees each bespoke client design personally – Sarah enjoys spending time with her family and sailing and paddle boarding.
