design: is driven by the unique sail look of the body, 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 spa. In case of customisation details as sidestraps, printed fabric and colours can be adjusted
washability: the sail fibre is highly twilled and woven tightly, which creates a water- & dirt repellent surface. If the laundry bag itself requires washing it's very easy to clean as dirt stays on the surface and because of the water-repellence they dry very fast
hygiene: based on the sleek surface of the sail fibre and the breathable fabric, this laundry bag is more hygienic than cotton or plastic solutions. Cotton absorbs a lot of the microorganism of dirty laundry and in plastic bags laundry is often humid, which makes microorganism grow even faster
lightness: the material is very light, while being strong. That's essential as the laundry itself can already be heavy enough
durability: also in its second life sail material is still very strong and long lasting to serve as a (laundry)bag
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.
