SHADE REVOLUTION More than two decades ago, our quest began. We started small but dreamed big. Our founder, Dougan Clarke, grew up in Miami spending every free moment on the ocean. A skillful boat rigger with an entrepreneurial spirit, he saw an opportunity to reinvent a product that allowed people to more comfortably connect with the outdoors. Unsatisfied with the shade solutions that existed, he looked to marine technology to transform the category of shade from short-lived and ordinary to enduring and extraordinary. He started TUUCI in a boat rigging workshop in 1998, setting in motion a shade revolution that continues to set the industry standard. Constructed entirely by hand, each shade system is a precisely crafted engineering marvel. Inspirations from a lifelong passion for the ocean are reflected in the design and detail of every product. Industry-leading patents, award-winning designs, marine grade components, serviceability and performance canopies are part of an unyielding commitment to redefine the shade industry. As our journey continues, we remain steadfastly committed to creating products that allow us all to enjoy nature in its most basic form – a comfortable place in the shade.
