The multipurpose Tuuci Exuma Cabana was designed by Dougan Clarke to be a private shady oasis that is easy to assemble, easy to use and built to last. Using the same quality craftsmanship as Clarke’s Tuuci Shade Platforms, the Cabana can be used as pool-side storage, a changing room, kid’s playroom, outdoor shower or refuge from the sun or rain. The four-wall frame is made from contract-quality Durateak, a composite polymer that withstands corrosion from sea, sun, salt or sweat. The frame is covered in bright Sunbrella® fabric, a solution-dyed acrylic that resists fading or mildewing, even when exposed to extremes of sunlight, temperature and moisture. Mesh windows on the sides provide air ventilation and a zipper on the front offers easy access. Made in U.S.A.

Self-taught, Clarke spent 10 years in the marine manufacturing industry, where he gained an expert's understanding of the materials and engineering needed to withstand the corrosive effects of the sea, salt and sun. He combined that with his experience in leisure furnishings to launch Tuuci ("The Ultimate Umbrella Company, Inc.") in 1998.
Clarke says that the goal of Tuuci is to "complement the comfort and accessibility of natural environments through shade architecture." His aim was nothing less than to "redefine what was previously known as an 'umbrella."... Read more >
