About Us

The Canvas Company helps you make your space feel like home. Whether you’re freshening it up or finishing it off, our custom-made products, from squabs and cushions to outdoor bean bags, are designed to your exact style and budget needs.

Kia ora, we’re The Canvas Company - a family-owned business with our origins in the late 1970s.

Today, we’re an integral part of the Canvas City Group, which also includes Inkjet Media New Zealand. This means we bring you the full range of all things canvas, including custom-made soft furnishings and specialist artist canvas.

When Bruce Smith began the business back in the 1970s, he started off selling army surplus stock before moving into top-end camping equipment. We were known as Canvas City back then and the move into camping was a great fit for the business.

However, after 29 years of being on Auckland’s Hobson Street, we relocated our shop to K-Road. We also moved out of the camping equipment game to concentrate more on being a supplier of high-quality outdoor fabrics.

"We found The Canvas Company to be very easy to deal with, queried were answered quickly and the final result was exactly what we were after. We will definitely be using them again"
Derek

"The Canvas Company have supplied a quality product with great workmanship. We are so pleased with how the product looks on our outside furniture and the ease of covering or uncovering our tables & chairs. Rather than storing our furniture in the winter we can now use it anytime and know it is protected from the elements when not in use. The fabric does not rattle in the wind, therefore we are not woken in the night. A great solution for us. "

I will definitely use The Canvas Company again and would recommend them to anyone needing outdoor furnishing products"

"This company has been lovely to deal with, providing good practical advice on options and helping me refine my order. They produced the outdoor squabs for my deck, which were irregular shapes, in a timely fashion and they fitted perfectly. Well done, thank you"
