Canopy & Shades

DID YOU KNOW?

Awnings and shade structured were first used in early civilisations, including in Egypt and Syria. These early awnings were made from woven materials and used to shade market stalls and homes from direct sunlight. The first retractable awning has been traced back to the Roman Empire. This retractable awning, also called a velarium, was used to provide shade for the Roman Colosseum.
