Mariner Meets Maker

Eighth Belle seeks to produce goods that are functional, sustainable & beautiful. It is inspired by maritime tradition, celestial navigation and working on the water.
Bells are rung every half hour during a watch onboard a ship. The Eighth Bell is rung at the changing of the watch. Eighth Belle is inspired by generations of mariners past, present & future.

Repurposed Sails

Retired sails are collected from across the great lakes and along the Eastern Seaboard. They are cleaned and carefully cut to maintain their original character.

Vegetable Tanned Leather

The straps on our bags are cut from leather produced in the USA naturally with limited environmental impact. The vegetable tanning process creates leather hides both durable and full of character.

Handmade in Kingston, NY
