SLO Sail and Canvas provides custom sewing for military, government and commercial/industrial needs, all produced in the USA. We have years of experience working on both large and small parts on a wide range of projects. Because of our wide ranging experience we can develop unique solutions to your situation. Many of our industrial covers have custom printed labels for quick identification. Our facility is uniquely set-up to handle design and manufacturing of a wide range of styles and sizes of parts. Our past jobs have included projects such as the following:

  • Custom Cargo Nets
  • Debris Shields
  • Equipment Covers
  • Weather Protection Curtains
  • Linear Actuator Covers
  • Rocket Motor Covers

Our facility features approximately 4,500 square feet of manufacturing space which allows us to efficiently produce very large parts. Many projects start with measurements that are turned into CAD drawings which are in turn used to cut fabric on our AutoMetrix Advantage CNC plotter/cutter (seen in the video below) featuring a large compliment of cutting and plotting attachments. We can also work from existing customer supplied drawings.

SLO Sail and Canvas maintains a large selection of sewing machines allowing us to select the right machine for the job. We have a very large zig-zag machine built by Cordes allowing us to sew through very thick parts as well as efficiently handle large/heavy parts. Our standard sewing machines all feature some degree of automation which helps to ensure a consistent and precise finished product. For certain applications, we use our two fully programmable Juki bar tackers. These machines allow us to create custom sewing patterns specifically suited to a particular product. A Triad seam welder allows us to create completely waterproof seams in certain materials without the need for stitching.
