100% recycled sailcloth
All the sails that we use are 100% recycled. They are collected from sailors and sail-lofts, then sorted and carefully identified. Our creative process is diametrically opposed to the one of regular fashion and decor items collections: we start with the recovered material and then imagine our new products. And through this upcycling process, we choose the spirit of our collections.
Stitched inside our bags and most of our decor items, a certificate of origin retraces the history of the recycled sailcloth, specifies the sail number and the number of products made from the sail.
Our commitment to the planet
Since the start of the company, our main goal has been to preserve our planet. Every day, we continue to search for new ways to reduce the environmental impact of our activities. If you have any suggestions for us, don't hesitate to contact us ! We welcome all ideas, as we only work better as a team.
We are involved in ocean racing, as a partner in major sailing events: the Vendée Globe, the Route of the Rhum, the Solitaire du Figaro, the Bol d’Or Mirabaud in Geneva, the Classic Week in Monaco. We work alongside sailors with whom we share the desire to ensure the world of sailing and of the sea is better known, and we have very close ties with them.
We manufacture the majority of our products in our workshop in Lorient, but also use subcontractors when needed. Outside our workshop, we use know-how and expertise of knitting and clothing workshops. We only work with small and medium sized companies, with whom we have built close and durable ties over the years.
Quality is our priority. When sailing at sea, there are rigorous procedures, there is effort, technical knowledge, and incessant adjustments to get nearer to perfect equilibrium and to deal with the unexpected. We take our inspiration from this to work as a team and to renew our collections. The sails themselves sometimes have their original seams and the marks of their sailing adventures: each piece is unique, hard-wearing and tough.
The elegance of the lines
In the image of the yachts which draw pure, flowing lines on the ocean, we attach great importance to the beauty of our creations.
We customize products. You can design your own bag, or customize one of our products as a gift or a business gift, or for an event. A lot of companies put their trust in us so as to associate their image to that of their commitment to sailing, or as part of their corporate social responsibility, through a recycled sailcloth object that corresponds to their company.
