Shadeland Te Tai Tokerau

Innovative Solutions Since 1987

Shadeland is the outcome of Canvasland Te Tai Tokerau’s rebrand in 2022. The rebrand is to provide more clarity to our customers on our growing product range in the shade and outdoor weather protection market. Shadeland’s goal is to be Aotearoa’s most trusted provider of shade and weather protection solutions.


The rebrand is new but we are not! Canvasland has been manufacturing and installing quality products from its Levin factory in Aotearoa since 1987, so we draw on over 35 years of experience. See more on the original story here!


Shadeland’s origins were born on a fishing trip in the Bay of Islands during a conversation between lifelong friends Daniel & Tamar Taitoko (Current owners of Canvasland Levin) and Graeme Peter. With Graeme being a long-term resident in Whangarei the opportunity was identified to bring the established New Zealand brand and its quality products to the North. As a result, Canvasland Te Tai Tokerau was established in 2020




Through the first years of business in Northland, we identified the need for shade and weather protection products that added a functional design feature to our client’s homes and properties. We recognized how many products were on the market without a professional designs or products backed with poor or hidden warranty clauses, thus began our search for products that handled the tough Northland coastal conditions. We’ve built a diverse range of products through strong relationships with suppliers, with our focus being on sourcing only the best quality products manufactured in Aotearoa, with industry-leading warranty timeframes. The result is the most diverse shade and weather protection solutions in Northland that will stand the test of time.


Shadeland has a strong team that we are very proud of, we stand by our values of doing the right thing, trust and communication. We aim to deliver you an exceptional customer experience and we can't wait to get started on your next project. Our goal is to be Aotearoa’s most trusted supplier of shade and weather protection solutions.
