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 the complete opposite to that of the fashion and decorative collections: we start with the recovered material and then imagine new products. Through this upcycling process, we choose the spirit of our collections.
All our products come with an authentication label which certifies the origin of the sails.
In our luggage and decorative accessories, the certificate of origin retells the story of the recycled sailcloth and specifies the sail number and the number of products made from that sail.
Since our creation, we have been preserving the planet, and every day we search for ways to continue to reduce the environmental impact of our actions. If you have any suggestions, don't hesitate to contact us, as we will only make progress if we work as a team; we welcome your ideas!
We are involved in ocean racing as a partner in major events such as the Vendée Globe, the Route du Rhum, the Solitaire du Figaro, the Bol d’Or Mirabaud in Geneva, or 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 gets better known. We maintain very close connections with them.
We manufacture the products in our workshop in Lorient and also use subcontractors. Outside our workshop, we use know-how and expertise in knitting and clothing workshops. We only work with small and medium sized companies, with whom we have built close and durable relationships over the years.
We are demanding with regards to manufacturing quality. Aboard a sailing boat, there are rigorous procedures, efforts, technical expertise, and never-ending adjustments to reach a near-perfect equilibrium and to deal with the unexpected. This inspires us to work as a team and renew our collections. The sails sometimes bear their original stitches and the marks from their adventures: each piece is unique, durable and robust.
