Our sails are treated against dirt. The canvases also resist to grease and pollution.

For frequent cleaning, it is recommended to dust the sail by aspiration, air insufflation, or with a soft brush to eliminate all surface particles.

To remove finger or grease stains use soap and lukewarm water.


To eliminate watery stains, absorb and rub with humid cloth.

  • - Do not store your sail if it is humid.
