WHO

Henri Lloyd was established in 1963 in Manchester, England. Mr Henri, as he became universally known, founded the company based upon hard earned principles of honesty, integrity and freedom, and it is these principles that are the foundations of the Henri Lloyd brand today. One of Mr Henri’s many talents, passed on to his sons who have steered the business for the last two decades, was the ability to treat everyone with the same level of genuine interest, wit and charm whoever they were.

Henri Lloyd’s staff are committed to providing the best service to you, and are always happy to help should you need any assistance in selecting your products.

50 YEARS OF ORIGINALITY

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 Henry 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. And in Australia we are proud partners with super maxi and Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race champions Wild Oats X & XI, Audi Australia, Audi Hamilton Island Race Week and Hamilton Island.

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.
