The original large natural tote designed by Ratsey and Lapthorn in 1902 and designed to carry coal and ice to yachts before the invention of refrigeration and heating. The original ‘Ratsey’ bags were made from cotton sail scraps and designed to be super strong. Made by sailmakers in the loft in Cowes and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
