Dutch canopies, also known as the traditional type of awning. And there is a lot of truth in this description, because our awnings are still manufactured in the same exceptional manner. Not using large machines or vast production lines, but by a craftsman with talent, product knowledge and tools. Exactly as it was done in days gone by. Does this affect the quality standards? The answer to that is a short and sweet No. Nostalgic is perhaps the best description of the Dutch canopy’s appearance. However, it has more in its favour than looks alone. Because the awning forms a domed shelter when open, it excludes not only the direct sun but also the ingress of light from the side. A marquis is custom-made, partly because of this the external options are very extensive.
