Our History

Owned and Operated by husband and wife team, Eddie & Elizabeth 'Red'. California Custom Canvas opened its newest location in South Lake Tahoe (On Emerald Bay Road behind the 7-11) in the Fall of 2016. Combined they have well over 40 years experience in Marine & Canvas. Eddie has been in the Upholstery & Marine industries for over 35 years; specializing in custom crafted canvas, upholstery, and marine repair & detailing such as gel-coat & fiberglass damage, hard water removal, decal removal, and much much more. Starting out in the mid 1970's in the Bay Area Eddie has worked on everything from motorcycle seats & riding leathers for notable bike builders to working on transforming the world famous vessel Blue Ribon holder the 'Gentry Eagle' from a record breaking speed yacht to an over the top luxury cruising yacht; in the late 1980's. In the early 1990's Eddie raised his family on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe in King's Beach; operating Mile High Marine, Repair, & Storage.

Elizabeth's background includes well over 10 years of professional high detail marine and automotive cleaning/care ranging from Northern California to the Big Island of Hawaii; her specialties include interior detailing (hazardous spills, catastrophic accidents, commercial fishing boat facade maintenance, etc), teak restoration, difficult stain/UV damage removal, creating custom vinyl letter designs (vessel names, CF Numbers, etc.) printing and application.

Together there is very little they can't assist with/fabricate/repair when it comes to all things Upholstery or Marine.
