Secondary income for farmers and seasonal industries

Farms, wineries, and restaurants - all of these industries are dependent on seasons; with success often being dictated by the weather. What if I told you success could be more in your hands, not dependant on the weather. Interested? I thought so!   In Europe, season-based industries have found an unconventional way to expand, by means of heavy-duty canvas! Worry no more, profits through the door. It's a special kind of canvas, it's fire retardant, UV resistant, heavy-duty, weatherproof, long- lasting and made into an eco-friendly (drum roll please...) Glamping tent!   Glamping, have you heard of it? It's the mix [...]

How it all started

One day back in 2009 I was designing an Adventurous kids cubby house for our kids. For the windows, I wanted to make army green canvas covers and I started searching on the internet for a wholesaler in canvas. That’s how I found a wholesaler in Nijkerk and I called him if he had the canvas on stock that I was searching for. He told me he imported the Canvas from a friend in Pakistan, and that he would come over that day. At the time I was reading a book called “Tennis in Kabul” and I was always interested [...]
