Finding Inspiration in Every Turn

Where it all begun: whilst scouting for new innovative products in 2022, we came across the recycling specialists, Save a Sail from Mauritius. Their craftmanship, quality of product and love for the environment captivated us. The same year we started our cooperation between Mzansi Trading as distributor for South African & Germany and Save a Sail Mauritius.

This is their story.

In 2010, when Julien started working at MU Sailmakers, he quickly noticed the huge amount of sails that was left aside when yacht owners came to collect their new sails. He wanted to find a way to recycle them – and the idea came up with turning them into bags and all kind of accessories. Marine joined him on the project, and a the end of 2012, Save A Sail was born. From craft markets to hotels boutiques, word of mouth helping, the brand found its place on the mauritian market.

“The idea was to transform old and unusable sails into unique bags and accessories. Each product would wear the story of the sail it is made of, and would be one of the kind.” We want to give a second life to everything that can be reused and upcycled. Our brand stands for environmentally production, as we try our best to find a new life for everything : it is no always about sails, but also some inox gromets, ropes, kite strings, windsurf bags.

What makes us unique

Our workshop is located in Calebasses where we work on creating and making new products depending on the recycling fabric we have. All our collections are different from one another as it is always a challenge to create from different textures or colours. Our crew now counts 9 members in the workshop, and a sales & marketing manager.

We trust in strong collaboration with MU Sailmakers as it is a whole process from sail making to sail recycling. When a new customer come to them to design a new sail, they often work the pattern from the old one – which they keep when the new is ready. We can then clean it, select the reusable parts and start work on the new collection ! When it’s ready, we are happy to giveaway one or two bags to the owner of the sail, kind contributor of the sail upcycling activity.
