My obsession with Moss Tents began when I first visited Maine 20 years ago. More than a few houses in town had sails mounted to them to shade sunny decks and patios. The geometry was striking. The portability and lightness offered a novel solution to summer sun
In 1975, Bill Moss and his wife Marilyn co-founded Moss Tent Works in Camden, Maine to design and produce innovative, high-performance recreational tents and architectural canopies. Marilyn Moss has chronicled the company's designs in her book, Bill Moss. Fabric Artist and Designer.
Sadly, Moss Tents are no longer in production. The company was sold in 2000. A few can still be found on Ebay and other manufacturers sell similar looking shade sails. Very cool indeed!
