The history of Canvascamp

Canvascamp was founded in 2005. The now thriving international tent company with unlimited ambitions has its roots in a one-man business. Led by Frederik Hiergens, a once small tent factory has been converted into an international success story. The company, who used to produce canvas tents for humanitarian ends only, have introduced the canvas tent to the general public, giving birth to the phenomenon currently known as Glamping along the way.

2005 Canvascamp was founded in 2005.

The initial Sibley tent design either has a separate groundsheet or sewnin floor.
