All started with a young boy and his love of camping. From the young age of 4, the creator of the vintage tent company Steve was taken on regular camping trips. His growing appreciation for camping and all things outdoors led him into Adulthood wanting more from the overall camping experience.
Then he discovered bell tents. The bell tent or ‘Sibley tent’ was invented by American military officer Henry Hopkins Sibley in 1856. His design radicalized traditional tents by being supported by a central pole that telescopes down into a tripod. Not only does this give the campers more ground space but it also makes the tent much easier to erect and pack.
