Established in 2000, 7gypsies has enjoyed being a part of the craft and scrapbooking industries. 7gyspies has taken a few journeys along the way, with the caravan’s final destination with Canvas Corp. 

a bit of the 7gypsies story…
A young architect who wanted to be a painter met an Australian school teacher with a penchant for collecting things. They married and traveled the world together, having 7 kids on 3 different continents. As age mellowed them, they settled in the southwestern US and began designing for the scrapbooking industry, drawing upon a lifetime of traveling and experiences. 
  
The Canvas Corp family welcomes this amazing brand, with a penchant for preserving the original inspiration behind the brand.  This catalog brings together vintage and brand new 7gypsies products.

the gypsies today… 
With a focus on preserving the inspiration for the brands and the product line, the 7gypsies development team has designed a number of vintage inspired collections that have a look of the past but are relevant to the creative market today. We have converted a considerable amount of products to production in the USA, while continuing to source world-wide to find the most exciting products, designs and technologies.  We are excited to release our most exciting collection Architextures™ which is going to take the 7gypsies brand in many wonderful new directions.
