About Us

In 1989 the Dartmouth Canvas Factory commenced trading here in Devon. Owned and created by Doug Briscoe, the business has always concentrated on the manufacturing of canvas goods, bags and accessories. One of the first employees at the Canvas Factory was Jayne, who, together with her husband Joe, bought the business from Doug in 2008. Today the business continues to manufacture the canvas bags and holdalls for which the Dartmouth Canvas Factory has become justly famous. With the emphasis on quality of materials and construction, these products have stood the test of time and last twenty years or more. Our own manufacturing has allowed us to quickly develop our products and respond to customer feedback. Every year we create further new designs and improve existing ones to meet customer requirements. Our e-commerce website displays all our product images and details to enable you to purchase online. We are also one of the largest stockists of Tilley hats in the UK, with over two hundred hats in stock, in various styles and colours.
