The History Of The Bedouin Tent And Why Our
Tents Reflect Their Design
Bedouin tents, black tents, or houses of hair have been a symbol of hospitality in
the harsh terrain of the Arabic deserts for centuries. The Bedouin people believed
that every traveler should be given shelter and protection from the relentless
elements for at least three days.
The desert is a harsh place with vegetation
covering less than ten percent of the land.
Desert dwellers are lucky to receive more than
twenty-five centimeters of rain per year. In
order to survive, the Bedouins led a nomadic
life style. Their survival depended on being able
to move quickly and efficiently given the
unpredictable nature of their environment. This
required their tents to be quickly and easily assembled and disassembled, and not
cumbersome or heavy to transport.
Which is why our Freeform Tents are especially modeled on the Bedouin
design. Not only are they quick and easy to install and disassemble, but they also
reflect the unique eye-catching and parabolic form of the Bedouin tents; and their
flexible design allows for versatility and creativity when it comes to set up and
installation. Using poles of varying lengths, our tents and marquees can be
installed anywhere and on any kind of terrain you are literally only limited by
your imagination. And, like the original Bedouin tents, our tents are made from
exceptionally resilient material that will protect you from all the elements.
