SIZES AND UK PRICES - PITCHING
In the deserts of the
Middle East the swift Bedouin tribes made a tent. It was designed
to protect the people from the harsh environment and to provide for
their needs in terms of living space. Separate sections provided
privacy and social space. The front walls formed wind breaks to
shelter the campfire or stove. The tent that they made was light
weight and even the larger tents could be pitched quickly by one person.
Although the "Dulas Valley Tipis" Bedouin Tent© is based on the traditional Bedouin pattern this particular tent was designed in house by our head designer and company founder Lesley Davidson. Dulas Valley Tipis holds the sole copywrite© to this structure. We use durable cotton canvas and modern techniques to finish the tent
perfectly. The waterproofed canvas is dyed to authentic colour ranges, stormflaps and Dutch lacing render the tent completely draught
free and water tight.
This Bedouin Tent is made totally from natural materials - cotton
canvas, hemp and jute.
This is the tent for
throwing in the 4x4 and heading off into the great outdoors, with the
family, with friends or alone.
Your Bedouin Tent can
be either our basic design or we can include your special
modfications. You can choose to add colour to the basic natural
colourway or keep close to the natural cream, sand, brown and black.
Certain features like tension bands (Trigas) can be made with flashes
of bright colour or can be decorated with applique patterns. The
standard tent has a simple geometric design on the main tension band.

The easiest and
fastest tent in the world to put up.
1. Take the roof section
and lay it on the ground where you want the tent to stand. The tension band should be underneath and
the larger section to the left as you stand facing the tent.
2. Stretch out the guy
ropes following the angles of the tension bands, place the sliders halfway along the length and
3. The poles are three
different sizes. Take one of the shortest poles and put the spike
through one of the corner eyelet's lifting the corner of the
roof. Take a medium sized pole and do the same the next eyelet
your way around the tent putting the shortest poles in the corners and
the medium poles in the straight edges as you go. Alter the tension of the guy ropes
with the sliders as you do this.
4. Fit the centre pole into the shoe in the centre of the roof and tie
it into place.
5. Adjust the tension of the guy ropes
using the sliders.
6. Locate the end of the wall
section. Take the front centre pole out of the eyelet by lifting
the roof off it and put the loop over the spike, then replace the
you way around the tent in a clockwise direction, hanging the wall off
7. Lace the the wall to the
roof using the Dutch lacing
8. Tie the wall bottom to
the poles so the walls can
be lifted up the pole to create ventilation. The wall can be
pegged down at each pole if necessary.
