The design for this structure is taken from tents used in almost every area and era of history. The conical shape is documented as having been used from Sweden to Italy and can be seen in sketches of Henry VIII’s camp and photos of the Zulu campaign. Original references define the tent as a “single pole, single canvas tent”-a true historical “one pole”! The French Infantry in 1753 assigned these tents to eight men and Mr. Sibley was so taken with them, that he modified the peak and put his own name on the design.
Tentsmiths has been making the highest quality historical canvas tents since 1983. Read More >>
