Tent Specifications

Our tents are made in Lahore, Pakistan by carefully chosen suppliers who use natural materials and local skills to create authentic tents.  All weaving, dyeing, printing, metal work and rope work is done by hand.

For this year, Bazaar Tents is excited to offer you a choice between the traditional cotton canvas, or a new polycotton canvas to suit your needs.  The traditional cotton offers a more natural look and a breathable finish, whilst the polycotton provides a more lightweight tent that is not only more robust, but easier to maintain.  Please do not hesitate to get in touch through our contact page for any more advice about which fabric is right for  you.
