All measurements are approximate and may differ from the actual product supplied. The tents are crafted by hand, which lends theman authentic appearance on the one hand, but may also result in one or two small defects on the other hand. Cotton is a naturalmaterial that reacts differently depending on the various outside conditions and can considerably shrink or expand. So the ironpoles included in delivery may not fit straightaway into the designated holes. It might in certain cases be necessary to somewhatshorten the poles to size. Please do not try to stretch the tent skin by force, as it increases the risk of the canvas tearing orthe stitches snapping.
Tent will be delivered completely in three packages.
Important information on assembly, handling and maintenance of our historical tents:
You can prolong the life of your Viking tent, Roman tent, Saxon tent,Knights tent, medieval tent, trade tent or medieval marketstall and enjoy its use for a further long time by observing the following precautions:
Putting the tent up is a fairly easy task that can be completed quickly and stress-free thanks to the loop system. The poles canbe adjusted in length to suit your needs. When pitching the tent, please make sure that the ropes connecting roof angles and pegscontinuously follows the lines of the tent's seams and that the pegs are properly aligned with the tent's bottom corners or loops.Do not overstretch the ropes, for natural materials such as wood or cotton alter under the influence of air humidity andneed space to contract and expand. You may thus avoid e.g. that the roof holes for the poles get distended and ultimatelyfacilitate water ingress. We recommend slightly slackening the ropes in the evening, for air humidity considerably rises at nightand may increase the risk of excessive stress exerted on your tent. The ropes should also be somewhat slackened in rain or highatmospheric humidity.
When setting up the side wall, it is best to start with the tent opening side. As an additional preventive measure againstmoisture and mould, the tent walls should as possible not quite touch the ground (this does not apply to tents with groundsheet).
If the tent has been exposed to humidity, we strongly advise you to dry it after use, as it is otherwise likely to mould. Woodenpoles should never be wrapped in plastic or the like. Once the poles are dry, a cotton cloth is perfectly sufficient.
Do not, on any account, use detergents or any other cleaning products to clean your tent. The best way to remove dried out dirtis to use a brush.
As for the storage of your tent over an extended period of time, please separate all accessories (pegs, ropes, etc.) from thetent itself and preferably pack everything separately. Make sure that all items are dry and stored in a dry place.
