Based in San Francisco, Mafia specializes in manufacturing products using kitesurf, windsurf, and boat sails. A professional kitesurfer, Marcos Mafia noticed that many colorful sails sat idle in storage facilities. He realized that the sturdy material of these sails could be recycled to create heavy duty bags. His sister, Paz Mafia used her engineering background to fulfill this vision. She designed the first lightweight, water-resistant bag, and Mafia was born. From Buenos Aires to San Francisco, these siblings have created one-of-a-kind bags and accessories. These bags are fun, stylish and versatile, catering especially to active lifestyles. Each bag is hand cut from different parts of a sail for a unique design; no two bags made by Mafia are the same.
