A two-pole medieval tent of 7 x 4 m size. This pavilion is made of impregnated cotton (340 gr/m2). It has a construction of so-called umbrella, with walls mounted to the roof with little S-shaped hooks. A Umbrella cotton tent is stable and much easier in setting out than the standard pavilion with two poles. There are cones with pommels on the high spots of the masts.
The inside of a pavilion can be divided into separate rooms. Dedicated curtains can be purchased for an extra fee.
What is the two-pole Umbrella medieval tent composed of?
A set of an “Umbrella” historical tent consists of:
— a three-part tent sheet (a roof and two walls)
— 16 ropes of 3,5 m length each, tied to the roof
— 16 ropes of 2,5 m length each, tied to the roof
— 48 hook + 2 auxiliary pieces
— 46 tent pegs + 2 auxiliary pieces
— 2 wind ropes of 15 m length each
— 2 wooden pommels on poles + small wooden pole for a flag
— 2 wheels (8 openings)
— 10 wooden poles fi 23 mm, 165 cm long
— 2 large masts of 350 cm height
— a set of metal parts to join the masts
There is a possibility to exchange polypropylene rope for hempen one in the medieval tent Umbrella. The polypropylene ones are more durable, they unwind and stretch out less.
ATTENTION: Picture presents different type of poles ended with cones with pommels. The set consists pommels with poles.
Due to the fact that our tents are sewn from 100%-natural fabrics, they are meant to be used occasionally. By “occasional use” we mean using the tent in a row of maximum 5 days, a couple times a season/a year, with drying the tent’s canvas after each usage. Despite anti-mold and anti-rain impregnation, when you use the tent for a prolonged time, mold spots might start to appear and the fabric might lose its anti-rain properties – especially in humid weather conditions (long and heavy rains, the lack of sun, high air humidity etc.). Therefore, the deterioration of tent’s condition due to prolonged usage cannot be treated as a ground for complaints. However, if you are interested in such usage of our tents, please contact us and we will offer you an alternative to our standard tent fabrics (e.g. a mixture of natural fabric with polyester, with higher endurance against dampness and mold).
ATTENTION! Under the influence of bad weather conditions (heavy rain for example), wet leather elements may taint the tent's fabric. The leather used for strengthening fabric in places where there are pegs, entry, and guy ropes is in black colour. (if applicable)
