A reinforced graft assembly made from a vascular graft component and a reinforcing sleeve component. The reinforcing sleeve component may include one or more layers. The diameter of the inner surface of the most internal layer of the reinforcing sleeve component is approximately equal to or larger than the diameter of the vascular graft component thereby allowing the former to be fitted over the latter. The compliance of the sleeve component is adjustable depending on the application needs, for example, by varying the angle at which the fibers used to form the sleeve component are laid down and by the method used to join the two components.
