Monhegan Mittens

Warm hands, Crisp fall days

By popular demand, we've added thumbs to our infamous fist mitts. Whether you're hauling lobster or tacking your Ensign into a stiff east wind, you'll do it with warm hands.

Maine Woods Pack

The pack frame is built from eastern white pine burned with a tar finish and sealed in spar varnish. Strap what you want to it or use our detachable Haversack bag. Comes with a small task blanket that doubles as a tarpaulin. This is the way to carry your ruck.

Natural and Vintage

We make our products with the collaboration of companies and artisans right here in Maine. No leather, no “tech” fabrics. We like wax cotton canvas, kapok, and organic silk. We even repurpose vintage WWII military blankets. We respect the environment.

That’s the only way to stay true to Governor Baxter’s vision.

Trees & Blankets

The Kapok tree grows in the rainforest, chemical-free. The seed pods are manually picked clean and spun into silky fibers. Kapok fibre is naturally hypoallergenic and anti-microbial. We prefer it to cotton fill.

The recycled WWII 100% wool blankets come with proven durability and an American provenance you can be proud of.

Local Artisans

We keep our crafting process right here in the state of Maine, in the family or working with off-season sail stitchers and local artisans.
