The name Darche and the Australian outback go hand in hand. Starting back in 1991 in regional Victoria, the Darche brand began their journey when they introduced the dome swag to the camping world almost three decades ago.
Passionate, dynamic and motivated – the Darche team are just as involved in the outdoor lifestyle as their customers are, so they’re perfectly positioned to create some of the most rugged, comfortable and weatherproof canvas outdoor gear on the market.
The name Darche, is a combination of the founder, Darren O’Dwyer’s and his wife Cheryl’s names – which are merged to form DAR-CHE.
Darche began when the founder, Darren O’Dwyer sought to create a practical, easy to stow and quick to set up shelter for his own adventures – so he created the canvas shell and fibreglass pole prototype for his dome swag design.
On his trips, he found that his creation caught the attention of other outdoor enthusiasts. So, he started showcasing his designs at local tradeshows, was inundated with interest from the public, and the rest is history!
Whatever your shelter needs are, Darche has an option which will give you extra shade and coverage whether you’re on a longer stint or just setting up for a sunny day at the beach.
With side awnings, 180° awnings, 270° awnings, and rear awning models, plus compatible side walls to act as a windbreak and mozzie annexes for insect protection– so you can kit out your vehicle to be as comfortable as your veranda at home.
