Since 1963, Henri-Lloyd has designed and built innovative sailing clothing to protect sailors, explorers and pioneers from the world’s most extreme weather. Born out of a passion to create a totally new generation of protective clothing, Henri-Lloyd is proud to have worked with some of the world’s best athletes and sailors, including Sir Francis Chichester, Sir Robin Knox-Johnson, Dame Naomi James, Shirley Robertson, Chay Blythe and Sir Ben Ainslie, Chief Technical Officer and prominent shareholder of the brand.
Henri-Lloyd is dedicated to making the right decision to lessen environmental impact and, at its heart, holds strong the belief in producing timeless, durable, quality products that last and become part of life’s journey.
The new HL BLU range has been made with durable, recycled GORE-TEX Prof face fabric to reduce use of virgin materials and is made in limited production quantities in order to reduce overall carbon footprint, over-production and risk of waste.
Several of their products are made from 100% recycled materials, and Henri-Lloyd have used recycled PET bottles to make their high-quality, highly-durable and long-lasting Henri-Lloyd MAV range and their Italian plant has a photovoltaic panel system making it 95% self-sufficient on energy usage.
