All of our lightweight canvas products are made right here in Durango, Colorado, from the smallest canvas Range Tent, to our Cavalry Bedroll, to our largest Wall Tents. 

Our tents and bedrolls are used all over the world by people who live, work, and play in the outdoors. We're proud to offer high quality, long lasting, handmade canvas goods, and we think you'll enjoy them as much as we do. 

Background & Design

The Southwest part of the United States is unique in the world. This is where the mountains meet the desert and elevations go from below sea level to over 14,000 ft. This unique and scenic environment makes for great ranching, hunting, camping and just plain old outdoor living. The key is you have to be ready for any and all conditions. We can have rain or blazing sun in the winter or snow in the middle of July. This environment calls for the best in its people and their equipment. That's where Ellis Canvas Tents comes into the picture. We live here and understand the needs of the environment and the people who go out into it on a regular basis in every condition you can imagine.

We didn't learn how to make the finest canvas products by accident. Close to us in Durango, Colorado there are over 40 licensed outfitters, we saw their needs and learned from them. We have perfected our craft through their experiences and through years of hard use and feedback.
