Basel type tent is based on original one that you can see in Swiss museum in Basel. It has no spokes but single central pole and hooked ropes that tighten the roof.
Basel type tent is dated for early 16th century but its appearance is similar then models seen on medieval illustrations, making it plausible that it was used much earlier by knights and traveling armies.

The tent is 4m high, as such the main mast is devided into two parts for ease of transport, making the longest element 2.1m long. The diameter measured on the ground level is 5m.

As standard the tent is made from natural coloured technical cotton of 300 gr/m2 density. This fabric, however, will not withstand prolonged rain, recommended for countries with a warm climate. We suggest to order impregnated fabric which has been tested and impregnated by the manufacturer, not by a subcontractor or by hand which will guarantee that the tent is rot resistant and waterproof. We also provide and option to use a colored and impregnated fabric for the Basel type tent

In the footer of the store there is a card of available colors. We can paint the Basel type tent in historical motifs. Examples of such projects can be found on our Blog.

The traveling knight needed a lot of equipment to live comfortably, that’s why his tent was richly equipped with furniture and transport boxes.
