Looking for the perfect gift for your stylish sailor? We’ve got you covered.
Passionate about sailing and design, French sailor Xavier Broise founded Avel & Men with his sister Agnes for urbane sailors. The brand, which means “wind and rock” succeeds in creating luxurious and sophisticated leather and carbon fiber gifts we love, particularly the Backpack. Crafted of supple yet sturdy leather, it was the thoughtful nautical details that really won us over.
They so beautifully capture the sailing lifestyle with a handle made of high tech sailing rope Dyneema, a stylish carbon fiber plate and an exclusive nautical pressure map lining. This wonderful boutique company is less than a year old, so a great opportunity to #shopsmall. The backpacks are made and shipped from France, so make sure to order by December 8 for Christmas delivery.
Searching for something techie, chic and personalized? Look no further than Avel & Men’s Keyholder. Their signature carbon fiber plate covers the top of the fob and the bottom is leather which is customizable with boat name, number or monogram – making a most unique and thoughtful gift. Each one is handcrafted in France, so make sure to order by December 8th for Christmas delivery.
