Tentsmiths’ Tarps are designed to be more of an all-round piece of canvas than the awning (see page 12). While the awning is designed to stand primarily in front of a tent to act as a porch, the tarp will do that and far more.
Versatility is the idea from the very beginning of construction. We sew our panels together adding a loop every three feet on every seam, then we double hem the edges placing a reinforcement patch and a loop every three feet on all 4 sides.
The TARP will set up over a rope, ridge pole or canoe! The many loops give you lots of options and, judging by the entries in journals and historical sketches, tarps were everywhere in every configuration.
