Hope Town Canvas started in early 2013 on our humble little kitchen table, that February we sold our very first bag. That Christmas we showcased our very first Collection in the Harbour Edge Restaurant, it was a success!! Things have been growing ever since.
In 2015 we built our very own Shop and Studio Space just across the street and have been loving our new space and the creativity and quality of bags our team has been able to accomplish in this time.
We have been humbled by the incredible support of both locals and visitors for our W Sail Bags collections over the years.
More recently, Our community of Hope Town was devastated by Hurricane Dorian. While we all suffered great loss we felt incredibly blessed that our building was one of few that survived with minimal damage. It became a priority to see what we could do for our team of 14 to help get them back home and back to work.
With the studio still in working condition, we put tremendous efforts to get our staff back on the island, even providing housing for many of them. We decided a new storefront could help us keep working and keep families on their feet while our island recovered.
We choose Harbour Island, Eleuthera to be the home of our second storefront. Harbour Island Canvas opened in late February 2020. Our Core Team just recently celebrated with a Grand Opening Weekend away, we had successfully gotten 90% of our staff back to work and the future seemed so bright!
Things changed quickly and this year we are all faced with another devastating challenge. Our staff is currently all on mandated government leave as The Bahamas is currently on 24-hour lockdown. We have now put all of our efforts into launching a new full website and online shop with hopes to keep things moving along to secure the HTC Team.
We greatly appreciate all the support you give with your purchase.
