Default Canvas material (Cape Town area)

What is the best place in the Cape to buy waterproof canvas material?

I was also looking for canvas here in the Cape. I got contact details of an agent. His name Dave 083 270 3017. He sells ripstop for approx R68.40/m incl and various other types.

I want to buy some to make side walls for my awning. Just figuring out how I will go about in doing that.

Hope it helps

Probeer Boland Canvas in Wellington. Hulle het jare gelede my karavaan se tent groter gemaak nadat ek die pale uitsorteer het...Hulle lewer seilprodukte vir die groot vervoermaatskappye en voorsien seil vir bootoortreksels, karavane ens....Hulle nommer is in die boek...

Also Christy Sports in Kendal Road, Diep River. 021 712-5020. They will make up anything you want done and their work is excellent. They also make and repair tents etc, and have excellent general outdoor and offroad products in their shop. They have kept my 20 year old canvas dome tent alive by replacing panels etc, made the awnings for my Landy, and made my first rooftop tent some 18 years ago, before they were widely available commercially.
