Canvas and Tent is a world leader in the manufacture of canvas-related products. Established over three decades ago, Canvas and Tent has a wide range of clients including the military, humanitarian organisations, game reserves, safari destinations and adventurers.
Located in Ladysmith, at the foothills of South Africa's Drakensberg mountains, our factory provides many job opportunities for the local population. And with the recent implementation of the Eton System at our factory, not only have we revolutionised the manufacturing of our canvas products, but Canvas and Tent will now remain at the forefront of excellence.
Through our efforts to meet and exceed tolerance levels prescribed for military applications we have set new standards in the quality of world-class canvas tent manufacturing. Our newly upgraded on-site laboratory, and the introduction of technologically advanced equipment, will continue to research innovative and improved methods for curing, treating, laminating and strengthening canvas. This ultimately enables Canvas and Tent to improve the design and function of existing products, as well as to regularly introduce new products that offer added value.
We are a preferred supplier to the United Nations and global NGO's, and are registered with many of their divisions including WHO, UNICEF, UNDP etc.
We have participated in disaster relief supplies in South Africa, Turkey, Kosovo, DRC, Angola, Mozambique, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Swaziland, Botswana and Namibia.
Whether it's a custom designed tented safari camp in the heart of the African bush, a mess tent designed for military use in the desert or a fold-up bush shower, or any other canvas, nylon or PVC product, discerning users the world over prefer the Canvas and Tent brand every time!
