Sailcloth is made from different fabrics and is quite sturdy. It is tough and water-resistant and is good to be used in all kinds of weather conditions. Hardly any effort is made to recycle sailcloth even after knowing all the properties it comes injected with. It is thrown away most of times without exploiting its complete potential. But there are many who are recycling sailcloth and using it to make various everyday items. Below is a list of seven products that have been made using recycled boat sails:
Stylish Spinnaker Chairs Made from Recycled Boat Sails
The awesome creation by Spinnaker may look like any other chair, but one close look and you will sense what makes them so special. Just turn the chair around and you will notice the awe-amazing piece of furniture comes draped in recycled sail cloth that is otherwise thrown away. The frame has been made using spring steel, which again is recycled and is further recyclable. The chair has a very nice curve that lends a lot of comfort and that too in an environmentally-friendly way. Customers are given an option to personalize their own chair, which further avoids over-manufacturing and wasting energy.
