SPATZ TENTS BREATHE
The indoor climate in a cotton tent is incomparable. Cotton is a natural fibre with excellent breathability. That’s why condensation or dampness in the morning is not an issue. In hot weather, cotton offers a pleasant, ventilated climate and a very high and a very high UV protection factor of 50+.
When wet, the tightly woven cotton swells – the tent becomes waterproof in a completely natural way.
FABRICS & MATERIALS
Our tents use fabrics made exclusively for Spatz from the finest cotton: breathable, temperature-balancing, waterproof, durable, UV-resistant, free from mould and with a UV protection factor of 50+.
Our cotton is selected and woven in Pakistan.
All the tents from the “Classic” & “Vintage” category use our beloved SPATZ Flamingo fabric made of 100% cotton (140g/m²)
SPATZ Renforcé (impregnated)
The light, air-permeable SPATZ Renforcé in plain white is used for our inner tents. It was developed exclusively for Spatz and made from 100% best cotton (110g/m²).
BTC (Breathable Technical Cotton)
All the tents from the “Family” category use our BTC fabric made of 60% Polyester and 40% cotton. It keeps the great properties of cotton in terms of breathability and water-resistancy but is lighter and smaller in volume than 100% cotton fabric. As a result our family tents are more portable, easy-to-transport and take less storage space.
For our “Classic” & “Vintage”tents we use a special PVC-floor. Completely waterproof, coated on both sides, highly abrasive-resistant and very easy to clean with a sponge and mild detergent.
It’s all in the details: for our SPATZ tents, we rely on proven quality from YKK. Zippers have to run smoothly – and for a lifetime.
Our poles are manufactured at the Altried Foundation in Zurich which creates a living space for people with impairment. The aluminium poles are of high strength and very durable and resistant.
