The Perfect Shade

Andrea remembers fondly the date of June 29, 2021, the morning after installation of a TERRASHADE structure at Russian River Brewing Company. The sun was blazing, pushing up daytime heat, as a group of cyclists arrived and quickly gravitated towards the TERRASHADE structure. Grabbing available chairs from the patio, they lounged in its shade. "As I turned to the corner to see where the voices were coming from," says Andrea, "tears sprang to my eyes watching our invention providing shade for this smiling group."

After a prosperous career in textile screen printing, Andrea shifted her visionary focus to shade sails in 2004. Her innovative approach garnered her Outstanding Achievement awards in both 2019 and 2022. In October 2023 American Textile Association's Review magazine featured the team’s latest project in the Overlook Club Lounge at Gary Farrell Winery in Healdsburg, California. It showcased TERRASHADE®'s unique and stunning design encompassing both form and function.
