Canopies

We make linen canopies and awnings according to your design and measurements. We offer either just linen tarpaulins or complete sets including poles, ropes and metal pegs. For a cost estimate email us at  sewmill@yahoo.de.

Please note that our canopies provide primarily sun protection. The fabric is not chemically impregnated and the tarpaulin remains waterproof only when pitched at a steep angle.  While a light rain should not cause problems, during a heavy rainstorm you should lower the sides of your canopy to facilitate the flow of water off the fabric. If you let rainwater gather on the top of the canopy, sooner or later the material will start leaking. 

When designing your own canopy, take into consideration that it is sewn together out of 1m wide panels. The anchoring should always follow the direction of the seams, otherwise you might pull them apart which can result in leaking. Keep in mind that the weight of the fabric doubles almost when wet, so plan a proper wooden construction when you opt for making one on your own.
