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.

Bedouin-Tent-480x396The 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.
