MAKING OF YESORKNOT PRODUCTS

In 2010, together with my wife I founded YESORKNOT 100% SAIL BAG, a project abounding with passion for the sea and respect for the environment.


At YESORKNOT we recycle sails to make fashion and decoration accessories. We retain the sail’s essence and preserve those authentic details that make it unique, in order to make top-quality products and exclusive designs.


From design to tailoring, the production process takes place in Barcelona and is supervised entirely by us, thus ensuring a very carefully made product. The design is produced in our studio and each product is sewn by hand at the Modelo prison in Barcelona, in association with the CIRE (Centre for Reinsertion Initiatives).


YESORKNOT is a project that arose from a passion for the sea and respect for the environment. Eduard, its founder, loves the world of sailing and sought to respond to a need in the sector: the sails used are not recyclable as they are highly polluting.

With his wife, Eduard therefore decided to give a creative use to these sails, with properties proven in ocean navigation, to create exclusive, salt-flavoured fashion accessories.

The path from idea to product involved thousands of steps, which can be summed up in two: a quality product (after years of research), and lots of new friends equally as passionate about the sea and the idea.

Everything is handmade in Barcelona with a view to exclusivity and to exemplifying ‘a job well done’. They are thus also doing their bit to help shape a cleaner and more beautiful world.


Before explaining how YESORKNOT products are made, it should be mentioned that each carries a specific imprint, has its own personality wrought from the adventures experienced by each sail, and is made by hand. Each product exudes this care and this essence.

The first step in creating a YESORKNOT product is to select the sail. This is important because not all sails are suited to being made into one of our products. Quality requirements are very strict and we are aware that some sails have been through so much that they cannot be given ‘fresh life’.

Once we have selected the raw material, the sail is cleaned thoroughly to remove all traces of dirt and salt, a process that usually takes from one to two days, depending on its condition.

We then go on to the most creative part or, in other words, deciding what product we are going to make from the sail. What will it go with? We listen to what the sail has to tell us and then seek out the parts with which to achieve a unique and original result: an eyelet, a hank, a telltale or a torn batten fitting, etc. What matters is to retain the essence of the sea and to offer different, original products.

Once each design has been established, the manufacturing process begins. All our items are made with top-quality materials to ensure a perfect finish. All our products, moreover, are handmade in Barcelona.
