About Us


 SLO Sail and Canvas is a small band of sailing enthusiasts. As a group we are dedicated to providing high-quality, hand-made products, built in our San Luis Obispo, California loft, with materials manufactured in the USA. We realize that great, American-made products must also be competitively priced. We don’t think you can beat our quality or our price no matter where you shop (or cyber-shop).

Whether you sail for pleasure or competition, we specialize in building new custom sails for your particular boat. Our expert sailmaker has years of sailing experience to craft a custom sail just for you. For precision, your sail is first computer designed via a specialized sailmaking program, cut on our large textile CNC plotter cutter, then hand assembled and sewn by our expert staff. We are more than happy to build you a new sail, jib, or spinnaker custom fit to your particular boat and sailing type. Give us a call for more information.

Our shop has 4,500 square feet of space for large sewing projects and we have 6 in-floor sewing machines mounted in our varnished hardwood floor.  We are serious about good manufacturing.
