Avel & Men

FOUNDER: Agnés and Xavier Broise
ORIGIN: Brittany, France

Imagine a moulded wooden boat equipped with a carbon mast, halyards in exotic fibres and high tech sails. Avel & Men weds traditional materials such as leather and brass with modern carbon fibre and rope, yielding products which are technical, sturdy but also light.

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, crafted with nautical details.
