Quba Sails was founded in 1996 in Salcombe, Devon, by two friends with a shared passion for sailing and the lifestyle of the coast. The brand was sparked by an idea to create unique jackets from reclaimed canvas sailcloth. Working with just one talented local seamstress, word of these one-of-a-kind custom jackets spread and Quba's popularity quickly grew from orders by sea-faring locals, to visiting yachtsmen and holidaymakers, and eventually to customers around the globe.
Quba’s collections now encompass both men’s and women’s nautically inspired ranges well as a comprehensive selection of sailcloth accessories including bags and cushions. It also operates over 20 standalone stores in England and Wales.
The core objectives of the new site are to communicate Quba’s heritage, the quality of its collections and to build on its reputation in the sailing and watersports communities.
And in their words…
“Quba is a much loved brand and we knew it was time to create a new site that reflected where we are as a business.
Digitl really understood what we wanted to achieve, and the team has done a great job in bringing it to life. I’m confident the optimisation for mobile and the overall UX improvements will add value and help us increase our sales and market position.”
