Why Choose Canvas for tents?
The durability and beauty of canvas are the primary reasons that those spending longer periods of time sleeping outdoors choose them. But there are many other benefits of selecting canvas as your tent fabric of choice:
Water Resistance: Water actually causes the cotton fibers to expand, seal and lock together with one another.
Durability: Cotton fabric is tough, making it difficult to rip and tear.
Heat & Humidity Control: Tiny particulates between the cotton weaves allow condensation, and summer heat, to escape from the tent.
Sustainability: Cotton canvas can easily be repaired with simple patchwork avoiding a fate in taking up costly space in the county dump.
Winter friendly: When properly equipped with a stove jack exit, you can add a wood burning stove to canvas tents to heat these puppies up. Just make sure that your tent is certified as being fire retardant.
Elegance: Natural canvas tents just look dang great.
