Gaastra was founded back in 1887 and the label has evolved over the years to become the modern maritime fashion brand it is today. The only 22-year-old Douwe Gaastra has produced his first collections in the Dutch town of Sneek - with wind sails. He focused purely on his great passion, sailing, and how he can improve it with his qualitative fabrics. Only a few generations later, the brand launched two lines under the name Gaastra Pro and Gaastra Sportswear. Since then, especially the rain and wind jackets and, how could it be otherwise, sailing clothes the stars of the house, which are appreciated by sporty chic fashion lovers from all over the world.
