functionality bread basket

design: the perfect maritime table decoration for your breakfast or dinner by the sea. The sail seams and the patina of the fabric give this bigger item lots of character and makes it not only an article of daily use, but an eye-catcher in your house, hotel or restaurant. In case of customisation details as your branding, size and shape can be adjusted


washability: the sail fibre is highly twilled and woven tightly, which creates a water- & dirt repellent surface. The bread basket can be easily washed and because of the water-repellence it dries very fast


hygiene: based on the sleek surface of the sail fibre and the breathable fabric, the bread basket is more hygienic than cotton or rattan solutions. Most materials absorbs a lot of dirty, which makes microorganism grow even faster. With sail material the dirt stays on the surface of even peals off.


lightness: the material is very light, while being strong.


durability: also in its second life sail material is still very strong and long lasting, while being used daily and washed often.


usage: interior, table decoration, hospitality, gastronomy, beach decoration


If you are interested in our interior styles also take a look at our laundry bag, sail curtains and beanbags




upcycling: after taken off the boats the sails are washed and ironed, which cleans them but also makes them softer before they are recycled into new products. Still every sail keeps a patina from its previous life so don't be surprised to see some traces of their past on your SAILMATE product.


uniqueness: every sail is different and carries on some unique stitches and marks from its previous life so our pictures are references, but will differ depending on the used sail.

strength: is a key functionality of sails. They resisted the elements and even in their second life they are still strong to carry heavy weight.


care: our products are machine washable (see details per product). So they stay as clean and bright as in the beginning, although you use them a lot. Additionally the highly twilled yarn and tightly woven fabric built a sleek surface where a lot of dirt pearls of or at least doesn't go in the fibre. Based on that sail fabric is very fast drying. Depending on what you put in them it also makes it very hygienic that you can easily wash them and they are not absorbing dirt.
