This sturdy, handy Saxon trade tent offers ample space for any small merchant, trader, busker or cook to sell his goods, house his belongings or even provide shelter for his wife or a servant. With a generous height of 2.30 m, this tent even allows rangy fellows to stand upright. As the long side fully opens up and converts into an awning, the customers are granted full view of the interior and remain protected from sun and rain. Only two people are required to pitch it swiftly in just a few simple steps.
The 425 g/m2 thick canvas is particularly robust, waterproofed and treated against mildew and mold. The sectional poles allow for compact transport, even in smaller vehicles.

Our tents have been created for those who want an historical looking tent, but who do not want to spend too much money on a 100% accurate one.
Poles are made of iron. The possible waterproofing treatment is to be renewed every two years, or after heavy rains.You can prolong the life of your tent and enjoy its use for a further long time by observing the following precautions:
- Do not overstretch the ropes, for natural materials such as wood or cotton alter under the influence of air humidity and need space to contract and expand.
- You may thus avoid e.g. that the roof holes for the poles get distended and ultimately facilitate water ingress.
- We recommend slightly slackening the ropes in the evening, for air humidity considerably rises at night and may increase the risk of excessive stress exerted on your tent. The ropes should also be somewhat slackened in rain or high atmospheric humidity.
- If the tent has been exposed to humidity, we strongly advise you to dry it after use, as it is otherwise likely to mould.
- Do not, on any account, use detergents or any other cleaning products to clean your tent. The best way to remove dried out dirt is 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 the tent itself and preferably pack everything separately. Make sure that all items are dry and stored in a dry place.
