After several years of being responsible for the maintenance, repair and manufacture of sails for the English Sailing Trawler DEODAR, I began early in 2000 to receive requests from other shipowners from around the coast.
I started taking in orders and gained temporary access to the premises of BECKHOLMENS DRY DOCK ASSOCIATION in Stockholm. Sailmaking started to develop on a small scale and before long the need for better and more efficient facilities became increasingly acute.
Development began to take off with the offer to build a brand new sail loft at Beckholmen. Starting in the spring of 2003 I was then able to meet the needs of a traditional sail loft in the Stockholm area.
