About Us

We are committed to using reclaimed and locally sourced materials whenever possible. Our sailcloth is 100% recycled and all of our products are manufactured in Southern California.

Born and raised is Southern California, Willis Boyd was an avid sailor and racer. He spent most of his life designing and building custom sailboats, working with some of the most renowned naval architects in the area. In the 1950’s he loved exploring boat yards and warehouses of Long Beach, discovering used pieces, and creating personal treasures to enjoy with his family.

Willis’ love of the ocean and passion of repurposing materials continues to inspire his family long after his passing. In 2009, Boyd Sailcloth was co-founded by his grandson and a family friend. Based on the philosophy that the artifacts around us can be reclaimed and used to fabricate new classic and functional pieces inspired, true to their origins.
