Up-Cycled Sailcloth

The Old Salt Loft has been up-cycling sailcloth for 10 years, breathing new life into old sails, turning them into shopping bags, wine carriers, holdalls, deckchair slings and much more. Each sail we use has it’s own unique character. The sails will often have marks, scuffs and stains from it’s previous life making each bag unique.

It may be only a small part that we are doing for the environment, but the more we up-cycle the less cloth goes into landfill.


Each bag is stitched using a traditional sail makers zigzag stitch sewing machine using genuine sail maker thread. Handles are cut from 12mm marine rope and all our webbing, zips and trims are sourced from within the marine industry. 

We specialise in short run bag production and have experience in sourcing a wide variety of specialist materials, labels and accessories.​​​​​​ We are the industry's leaders in branding recycled sail cloth with corporate logos taking our products to the next level. We are proud to have worked with some of the top names in sailing, including Land Rover BAR, the British Sailing team, Oyster Yachts and many more.
