Henri Lloyd - Celebrating 50 years of market innovation and success

Henri Lloyd

In 2013, Henri Lloyd, a proud family-run company, will be celebrating half a century as one of the market leaders in technical sailing and lifestyle apparel. It has paved the way for all modern foul weather clothing, setting the standards throughout the generations for performance and comfort.

Founded in 1963 in Manchester, England, by Mr Henri Strzelecki and managed by his son’s Martin and Paul since the 1980s, this British specialist clothing brand has pioneered the development of modern foul weather clothing technology and design.

Starting from the very early days with ‘Mr Henri’, as he became universally known, the company introduced a number of design firsts which are now accepted as industry standards, including: the first ever Bri-Nylon® garment with hand taped seams, the first integral safety harness, the first non corrosive zip, and the use of Velcro® as a closure on garments, to name but a few.

Henri Lloyd’s association with the world’s sailing elite includes working with the early pioneers of solo circumnavigation and exploration Sir Francis Chichester, Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, Sir Alec Rose, Sir Ranulph Fiennes and over the past twenty years with Ben Ainslie CBE, quadruple Olympic gold medallist.

Henri Lloyd are also proud to have had gear worn in almost every major Round the World Race over the past five decades, allowing Henri Lloyd to stay at the forefront of intelligent innovation.

Henri Lloyd’s strong international presence sees the brand represented in over 50 countries worldwide, including Australia with two signature stores in Sydney.

After five decades of relentless innovation, Henri-Lloyd continues to push the boundaries of technical sailing clothing. Always striving to improve comfort, safety and performance for sailors, wherever they sail in the world and whatever type of sailing they enjoy.
