Killykite was developed in 2015 by a kitesurf fanatic, Marco Tagliaferri alias “the Killer”, when a friend of him damaged his kite sail on the rocks during a massive NE winter swell.
The sail was to be thrown away, completly destroyed, but his friend said to Marco: ” I don’t wanna thrown it in the landfill, I have too much beautiful memories…Why don’t we recycle it in a jacket ? Let’s give him a second life! “
But how ?
Some part of kite’s fabric was still good and Marco told the idea to his mother, a retired high fashion designer, and she made something of Unique, an handcrafted jacket from the old, destroyed and useless kite sail.
It was awesome and they have saved the kite sail from a shameful end as well.
After this first model, many friends of “Killer” felt in love of the products created by recycling the old sails and soon were born a lot of wonderful bags and other clothes.
KillyKite brand born from the Marco’s nickname: Killer. We can not reveal you the origin of this nickname… you know… ; )
Our mission now is to give a second life to our loved kite sails, which they’ve followed us for hundreds of adventures in sea or mountains and too many times were abandoned in some forgotten places, where they could not see the sun light they’d deserve. We make this happen by realizing ecologic and one of-a-kind fashion products so the kites’s souls can be born again.
Every jacket or bag are not equal to an other one, if you buy a KillyKite product you’re buying a one of a kind piece, that no one else will ever have.
All the kite’s addicted are respectful and loving the environment, the source of their fun. For that reason KillyKite donates the 5% of the sales to the oceancleanup project, a company that have the ocean cleaning as goal.
Help us to spread out our Recycling message to the World !
