ET & H Canvasses was established in 2001 its founders and my parents, Charles and Sheila Nott, who literally drove across the country in their VW Kombi, to deliver their hand-made canvasses, expertly crafted by their small group of craftsmen and lovingly peddled by two of the most amazing people I have ever known.
They established strong and long-lasting relationships with artists across the spectrum, most of whom still continue to support us and I take inspiration from how personal they made their craft and how important it was to them to share their knowledge and experience.
As an artist herself Sheila realized the need for superior artists standards and the lack thereof in South Africa. It was then, that Sheila and Charles went into serious research on the subject. The combination worked well. Him being a scientist and she , an artist - resulting in a signature surface that has made ET & H the preferred supplier over over a decade.

My father, my hero, passed away suddenly on 31 October 2012, although it still feels like yesterday...
On 1 July 2014, I decided to take my rightful place and to allow my precious mom to return home.
I look forward to the energy and the love that our business continues to generate and invite you too to become part of our growing network.
We have an UNBELIEVABLE team of people! And they know EVERYTHING about canvas! Specialists in every way, they carefully hand-select the necessary raw materials to craft their product with unparalleled skill and experience to produce nothing short of something beautiful!
Thank you to Henry, Desmond, Marlon, Jackie, Sidney, Lieutenant, and Simphiwe! We couldn't do it without you and look forward to many more years together.
