Sailmaker Clarijs is a traditional family business.
It was founded by the brothers Clarijs when in 1948 they started as a saddlery. When less work was available in the leatherworking branch, the type of work changed. Gradually the company started to focus more on processing sail canvas and related products. The company evolved and has passed on to the sons and grandchildren and has grown into production work of (cycle)bags and bakfiets covers in the more recent years.
We are proud to tell, Clarijs products are being sold in more then 12 countries now, including USA and Canada.
Corporate social responsibility
All our products are manufactured in The Netherlands and all the materials we use are produced in the EU. 90 % of the products we make are made by people who work in a sheltered workshop! In the last years we sell more and more (cycle) bags made out of reCYCLEd truckcover and other used materials.
