Our philosophy is simple:

To create authentic & original bags ( products ) from selected reclaimed sails, liferafts, leather & other textiles.

Each & every Mamukko bag is handcrafted by us in our workshop in Kinsale, Ireland. We love every single aspect of this nice circulatory road from sourcing the sails, liferafts & other fabrics to stitching the pieces together while we listen to our records played on a Technics 1210 turntable.

A bit more about the uniqueness of our products:

Each one off & limited edition Mamukko has a unique serial number hand-stamped onto the bag or on a stitched in label.

Our stitched in labels are made from upcycled sailcloth & hold the serial number ( product sequence number ), the batch number & the fabrics used to make the bag.

Our business model & production style is not a traditional one. We keep templates of ( nearly ) all the products we make but as a result of the amount of new designs we create we stop making some of the “old” designs.

We are always “limited” to the fabrics we source. This is why we make limited edition small batch series & one off designs. We could repeat some of the designs ( depending on the quantity of certain sails or fabrics we have ) but we enjoy & prefer reinventing ourselves & constantly coming up with new innovative ideas & products.

We constantly update our shop with new products so please come back again once in a while if you are curious what Mamukko will cut & stitch in the future.


“We do it for the love, not for the likes. Proudly carry on our family heritage, and hope to pass on our knowledge and skills to the next generations.“
