The Birth of Sailcloth Tents
Accomplished sailmaker Steve Sperry founded Sperry Tents in response to the classic American inspiration: necessity. To accommodate an expanding guest list for a family function, Steve Sperry first created a sailcloth tent in the late 1970s by applying his mastery of sail making. Identifying the potential for high-end wedding tent rental, Steve and his sons Tim and Matt Sperry grew the project. Today, Sperry Tents are made with the traditions and knowledge of hundreds of years of American sailmakers.
