Built on Breton granite, Guy Cotten has a sound identity and know-how!
In 1964, the conquering of the Seas started on the docks of fishing harbours. This was the period of heavy, uncomfortable, easily damaged oilskins, made of coated cotton. This was when Guy Cotten launched their “yellow oilskin” made of coated “nylon”, which was much stronger and really much lighter! In less than four years all the Breton fishing harbours chose to use Guy Cotten oilskins.
Today, the company is the world leader in this market.
It is, no doubt, one of the most innovative companies in marine-related circles, and one that has done its utmost to improve the comfort and safety of the sailor; the key word for Guy Cotten!
