Black Dog Design, Inc. opened in 1999 as a producer of fabric bags, totes and throws. Since then, owners Mike and Jan Copeland have moved into a 2,000 square foot facility and have expanded their line to include custom fabric work for boats and interiors. Mike’s background as a machinist and Jan’s experience in the realm of fabric have enabled them to offer an unparalleled level of expertise in custom fabric work.

Our custom work includes everything from simple repairs to complicated boat covers, furniture re-upholstery, deck covers, snap-in carpet replacement, and even custom covers for unique items like retired military equipment.

Please note that, since Black Dog Design is a custom shop, we generally need access to your boat, trailer, home, etc. in order to design the solution to your needs. We are willing to travel as necessary, but we try to limit our travels to about a 100 mile radius from our store.  But, please contact us to discuss your project.

In their store, located adjacent to the Joplin Store at the entrance to Mountain Harbor Resort, Mike and Jan have also expanded to include a variety of items for sale from local artists along with a Big Green Egg dealership.  Here, you can find a perfect accessory for your home or lake property or a nice gift item for friends or family.

Have a look through the photographs on these pages for a sample of the many projects we have completed for our customers, .

We look forward to meeting you and discussing your needs.
