Personally, I really like to spend time outdoors. I was born in the middle of summer and my daughter in September. So every birthday is a noisy picnic for family and friends in the park or by the river. I’m usually lucky with the weather, so on my birthday, it’s always bright sunshine. That’s why no way to spend this celebration without the best canvas camping tent.

I did not want to give up my favorite pastime, so we found a way out. We read reviews and bought a large  4 season canvas garden and camping tent for sale of impressive size.

What to pay attention to while choosing?

Size. It should accommodate all participants in your event. If you only buy it for lunch in the garden with your family, you should not buy a big tent in which you will feel uncomfortable in the hope that one day it will be useful for the wedding. A small and cheap round tent would be enough for you.
Frame. Given the size of the canvas tent, you must understand that they must be very strong in case of strong winds. It is also worth checking the equipment and fasteners with which your tent will be fixed to the ground.
Color and shape. This may seem strange to you, but believe me, if you are used to watching it in your garden or at your picnic, you will get much more positive emotions from a simple lunch or a noisy picnic
Wall. It should have additional walls for protection of your canvas tents.

What is canvas
To compare tents from canvas with other tents, we must first understand what canvas is. Canvas is an extremely strong monochrome material used for sails, tents, marquees, rucksacks and other items that require strength. Modern canvas is usually made of cotton or linen, although in the past it was made of hemp and now there are some versions of polyester. The root of the word “canvas” is derived from the Greek word “cannabis”, meaning “made of hemp”. Which makes sense, since the earliest versions of the canvas were made of hemp.Let’s move to the modern canvas tent industry and you will find two main uses for canvas fabric – (but there are others)

1 – Cotton canvas
To date, cotton is the most common fabric used for tarpaulin tents. It is a medium strength fabric that is 10-20 times stronger than wet and dry. The new cotton canvas will absorb some water on first contact and then the cotton fibres will swell. Cotton canvas dries more slowly and is slightly exposed to mildew or mildew if it is not allowed to dry completely before storage. Cotton fabric is also flammable. Additional chemicals and coatings are often used with cotton cloth tents to improve water resistance and reduce flammability.

2 – synthetic fibres
Currently, a new type of canvas is used for tents, namely a polyester canvas. The polyester canvas reduces initial water absorption, reduces the total weight of the material, increases its strength and reduces the probability of mould.

Why is tent canvas better
To understand why a canvas tent may be better for your needs, you first need to understand which tent options are available. A normal tent fabric includes canvas, nylon and polyester (as well as many unique variations of these three). Nowadays, nylon and polyesters are essential types of plastic polymers. This is the basic material you will find in all the cheapest and lightest tents on the market. There are some differences between nylon and polyester, but for the purposes of this article they are essentially the same – thin, light, plastic fabrics. Canvas, on the other hand, is a heavy woven smooth fabric, usually made from cotton, hemp or a mixture (again, some new tents are made from polyester fabric). In this way, you can break down your tent material options into two categories: cotton vs. plastic.

Built-in ultraviolet protection
Cotton fabric is inherently thicker and therefore more resistant to ultraviolet radiation. It will protect you, inhabitant. In the long term you can also easily process your tent with products such as Nikwax or similar which have additional protection against UV radiation. This will help protect your tent material itself. Do not overdo it as it will affect the breathable character of the canvas.
