Keeping our oceans clean while carrying on the sails' salt legacy
The history of where the sail has travelled, sailing vessel name and any historic stories will be included with each handmade product.
Handmade individually with limited collections. Ready for any adventure
Owning a piece of Sail Legacy’s product is like owning a little piece of ocean history. Every sail has a story to tell, returning full circle to creating new salty experiences while reducing the potential of marine debris re-entering our oceans.
We specialize in outdoor accessories that you can take on your next adventure.
Marine debris are entering our oceans at an alarming rate.
The common sail is made from strong and low stretch materials like polyester and Nylon®, which in turn take hundreds of years to decompose once discarded.
Sailcloth is designed to withstand harsh conditions and a variety of long-term environmental exposures. Salt Legacy aims to give a second life to journeyed sails and other durable materials, transforming them into new products.
Salt Legacy will contribute to Vancouver Island’s circular economy by offering the local sailing community a sustainable option for the disposal of “dead sails."
Salt Legacy will encourage individuals to donate their journeyed sailcloth to become new products.
The End Result:
The new upcycled product will inform consumers on its history, to develop a connection to place, adding a personal value to the product.
Salt Legacy is currently creating a diverse line of custom handmade products made for outdoor activities, aiding in connection to place. Inspiration comes directly from nature and the individuals that live and play along the coastline.
