As long as it fits under the sewing machine....
... Tatteljee can repair, maintain and adjust all textile products.
Textiles outdoors are subject to the weather; rain, wind and sun (UV radiation). Cloth, mesh and windows can tear, stitching can come loose, and zippers can break. We can restore everything! Feel free to come along with your product. If you are in a hurry or live far away, please contact us.
Maintenance of cotton tents and awnings mainly consists of re-impregnating the fabric, which should be done every few years. Not only to keep the tent watertight, but also to extend the life of the textile. Tatteljee/Erdman Schmidt impregnates with an environmentally friendly product, non-toxic, biodegradable and water-based.
Upon request, we can immediately go over the tent with the impregnation and if necessary, carry out small repairs.
Cloth can tear. The cause may have been an 'accident', such as a piercing with a pointed object, or a hungry mouse, but tearing is also the result of intensive and/or prolonged use. Depending on the cause, Tatteljee can repair the hole or replace the canvas.
Tatteljee also makes separate roofs and parts, possibly based on the old part.
Zippers are the most vulnerable part of textile products, but often easy to repair. The most common problem with broken zippers is that the slider is worn, so the zipper no longer closes securely or splits open again after closing. This can easily be solved by replacing the slider.
There may also be damage to the teeth of the zipper which means the zipper must be replaced.
|Extra zipper tent, per meter||€ 24,00|
|Replacing zipper tent, per meter||€ 35,00|
|Replacing zipper clothing, per meter||€ 74,00|
|Replacing slider||€ 7,00 - € 21,00|
A common problem, especially for boat and caravan awnings, is that the canvas is still in good condition, but the stitching is coming apart. Often polyester/cotton yard is used, which swells when it rains; very important for preventing leakage. The disadvantage is that cotton, as a natural product, decays.
We can stitch over all seams, so that your product can last for years.
Price: € 65,- per hour.
We often get requests to modify an existing product. Some examples are extra holes with mesh for ventilation, or windows for more daylight.
