Not all of our second hand sails end up back on boats. Some sails are in an unusable condition, however these are still repurposed.
Many of our sails go to artists around Australia for various art shows and installations.
Edwina Cooper is an artist based in South Australia who has re-purposes sails from the Sail Exchange for an artwork. The artwork entitled 'Primal: Oceanic Space' is based in Streaky Bay, South Australia.

Kate is another artist that has been a customer of Sail Exchange. In 2018, Kate used a second hand spinnaker in her artwork The lighter a thought the more it rises. This was showcased at The University of Sydney's college of the arts The Fauvette.
Our sails can also be used to make bags and other accessories.
