Contender Sailcloth manufactures an extensive range of sailcloth with characteristics that are fundamental to modern sail design. Contender Sailcloth is recognized for its commitment to quality and is selected by leading sailmakers around the world.
To ensure the high standard of quality we expect of our sailcloth, Contender Sailcloth controls the production process from start to finish. Yarn is spun, woven, and finished to our specifications. With over 30 years in sailcloth textile manufacture and design, Contender Sailcloth has inserted quality control into every step of the sailcloth production process. The 2019 addition of Contender Finishing GmbH in Germany continues our hands-on approach to sailcloth manufacturing.
The Contender Sailcloth crew consists largely of sailors. We are proud to be able to support our product range with advice based on experience as well as technical data. By focusing on developing close relationships with sailmakers worldwide, Contender Sailcloth commits itself to making sure that sails built with our cloth meet and exceed expectations.
