About Brookite .....
Brookite have been manufacturing kites and outdoor toys for over 100 years. In that time the
design and materials have changed enormously and over the last decade power and sport kiting has
emerged alongside the pure pleasure kite fliers, taking its place in the surfing and skate boarding
cultures and opening new and exciting markets for Brookite.
The company are constantly updating and adding to the ranges but still have the basic kite shapes
that were the original mainstay of Brookite in 1907 when the company was founded by the Brooke
Brothers. They, like everyone else were swept along in the raging enthusiasm for aviation and all
things flight related. In 1910 it was a Brookite kite that took an aerial aloft from SS Mafalda in the
South Atlantic Ocean enabling radio pioneer, Guglielmo Marconi to make the first ever transatlantic
radio message spanning over 6000 miles.
With this heritage, the very reason for the company’s longevity has been the ability to adapt to
changing trends and to be constantly innovative with new designs, shapes, materials and the more
challenging flying techniques that are demanded by current kite flyers and adrenalin junkies!
Today this family business continues to thrive from a converted corn mill based in Devon, supplying
kites and toys to outlets all over the world. Every product leaving the factory is a quality item,
supplied at a sensible price and is a part of all the experience gained in over a century of kite making.
