Our family LOVES the beach! Growing up on Canada's wild east coast, summer days were spent playing in the sand & swimming in the North Atlantic.
Tired of juggling bulky, heavy parasols with the rest of the beach gear, they knew there must be a better solution for beach shade.
It had to be easy to set-up, compact, lightweight, & stylish! Most importantly - it had to stay up in strong winds.
Creative ideas were flowing & the ORIGINAL sun shelter was born! We took the first prototype to Mexico and drank coconuts while staying cool in the shade.
Upgraded Beach Life
A small handful of cabanas were made for family & friends, and we all enjoyed the elevated beach lifestyle for the next years.
FAST FORWARD 20 YEARS
After years of strangers asking about our shade cabanas, Suniela Beach was born. And what started as three of us frantically sewing in the living room, has grown into an International production line; and a small business that's growing around the globe.
Our fabrics are sourced directly from Artisan makers in Indonesia and India. Each Suniela canopy is dyed and sewn by hand, using quality materials. We're proud to pay fair prices, and support small family businesses.
Made With The Planet In Mind
It's important that our products don't end up in landfills; so we use natural and reusable materials as much as possible. Our aluminum poles are infinitely recyclable & canopies are machine washable for longevity. Our cottons protect naturally against 93% UVA and 98% UVB rays. No chemical coatings here!
When you shop from Suniela Beach, not only do you benefit from personal attention to detail; you help support many small businesses, artisans, and entrepreneurs. ♡
Sharing Mom's great invention with the world!
