NKS Sail Loft was founded in 2016 by Nina Kate Smart. ​Operating out of Lefkada Greece and the Lake District UK, we are surrounded by the ocean and possess a true passion for all things sailing. 


Whether it's boat covers, canvas work, upholstery, or new sails. NKS Sail Loft are on hand to provide you with all your sail/boat needs and more.

With a background in Textile Practice and Surface Design, NKS Sail Loft has pushed the boundaries over the years and challenged the way in which sails are perceived, designed and manufactured. We combine your requirements with our expertise to create design solutions that work for you. We thrive on customer service and will provide you with quality workmanship, prompt turnarounds and competitive pricing.
