Primary Source of Material- 100 % Cotton Canvas Fabric:
Our canvas bell tents are made from 100% cotton. Cotton is a soft, fluffy staple fiber that grows in a boll, or protective case, around the seeds of the cotton plants which are drought tolerant and requires very less water to grow. Cotton is the largest natural fiber supplying the global demand for textile products. It is sustainable, renewable, and biodegradable, making it an excellent choice as an environmentally-friendly fiber throughout its entire product life cycle. Most chemical fibers are petroleum based, which means they come from nonrenewable resources.
It’s made from Grade-A premium Double Fill “Army Duck Canvas” using weightless WR (Water + Mildew) treatment and maintaining the natural breathability of 100% cotton using our proprietary brand of Canvas DYNAGUARD! Using a Silicone based chemical allows us to achieve much higher water repellency as opposed to the traditional wax treatment which adds extra weight and inconsistent water repellency. It comes with a fire retardant finish as well. Our fabrics are tested by an independent lab and bench-marked on every production run to ensure consistency of critical factors such as:
- Hydrostatic Pressure Head Test
- Mildew Soil Burial Test
- Tensile & Tear Strength
- Color Fastness to Sunlight
