The concept


Voilenveste or "sailtojacket": how an old sail becomes a jacket.


I got the idea during a visit in Malta when I found a batch of old sails that had been left in a loft. I just wanted to use them!


Back in France, what was just an idea soon became reality when I made my first sample - a Girl's jacket made out of an old 80’s windsurfer sail. This "sharp" coloured Jacket was a great success and subsequently became the highlight of my collection. Unsurprisingly perhaps this design is now called the “Lighthouse”.


The concept was born: making unique Jackets from old sails, keeping alive your stories, race memories and trips, creating a unique souvenir and also recycling old sails all in one go.


Bring your old sails back to life:


Take a look at the men’s and women’s pages to select your design and then according to colours, your sails specifications and wishes, we will create something unique just for you.
