Material

The tents are made in our own workshop.

The Tent fabric is made of high quality materials and suitable for a variety of applications for further processing.From our many years of experience, we use impregnated material. Anyone who has the time and inclination can also get tents made of untreated cotton and smoke his tent several times.Impregnated fabric, however, is much more durable. The impregnation lasts about 2 - 3 years, depending on the period of use. After that we recommend re-impregnating the tents.A fire in the tepee is very romantic and improves its durability. Otherwise, the care instructions of the assembly instructions should be followed.

Unless otherwise specified or agreed , we use 100% cotton, nature, water repellent and water repellent and impregnated to prevent rottenness. i.e. The outer cover is about 420 - 500 g / sqm and the fabric of the inner tent (eg the tipi) about 300 g / sqm.
Shelter and Tourtipi are sewn in the standard version in the lighter quality (350g / m²). But any way, we ask you to remember: a tent made of cotton "lives" with nature. So it's natural for it to change color depending on its environment. To limit this, on request, mixed fabric (50% cotton / 50% polyester), 100% synthetic or colored fabric can be processed.

Cotton in the tent fabric

Cotton is a familiar natural product with proven benefits.For this reason, cotton has always been the basic ingredient for tent cloth.It is stable and also has optimum air permeability and good moisture-regulating properties. By impregnating with water and dirt repellent agents, the tent fabric has grown in the most adverse weather conditions for years. So that the cloth can be processed in different tent types, We have different weight classes and two different colors to choose from. In addition, the tent fabric with flame retardant properties is available. In addition, tents in blended fabric quality are available.
This fabric offers "the best of both fabrics" due to the perfect combination of 50% cotton and 50% polyester. The air-permeable and moisture-regulating properties of cotton are fully appreciated. At the same time, polyester provides a very stable fabric, which is very strong and durable. Tents made of this material are also available in a flame-retardant version.

Maintenance

In general, care should be taken to ensure that the tent is always taut, but not too tight, so that the water can flow away unhindered.Regularly wipe the cloth in a dry condition with a brush that is not too hard and wipe it off with a damp cloth.If the cloth ever has stains, always let them dry properly and then brush out.If this is not successful, warm water can be used but always without soap and chemical additives.
For particularly stubborn cases, a cleaning agent can be purchased from the trusted retailer.Another possibility is to put the tent in a professional laundry, where it is professionally cleaned and, if desired, also re-impregnated To prevent mold, the tent should always be stored dry in a well-ventilated place.
During the first big rainfall, rainwater can easily spray through. This is normal and usually occurs only in the first time, since the cotton fibers must first close, making them tight.

Storing

The tent may generally only be dry packed and stored. If this is not possible, the tent must be laid out to dry within a maximum of 24 hours, because otherwise form so-called spot or fleck, which do not represent how often suspected dirt, but mold. The tent should be stored in a cotton packsack, this is in contrast to a plastic bag ensures optimal ventilation. If possible, do not wash this cotton sack with soap, as it will attack the tentcover, even if the sack is already dry.
The supplies should generally be stored separately from the cover.
