Types of Handcrafted Moroccan Tent
Historically speaking, the Classic Moroccan Tents have been classified into two types:
The Bedouin Tents have been the shelter to many desert dwellers for centuries, and they are also known as the "House of Hair". Soldiers or herders used to weave these tents as they ventured around the desert for hours.
These tents are woven from sheep and goat hair into strips of rough cloth which are later sewn again. These Durable Moroccan Tents are purely handmade and have a darkly hued appearance because of goat's hair. When the sheep's wool is combined, it gives a monolithic, striped appearance to the tent. In ancient times, the only purpose of these tents was to act as a shelter to dwellers.
These tents were kept low and had a somewhat flat roof to blow over by the high desert winds. They were purposely woven loosely to allow efficient heat dispersal. The black color of the tent is used to help absorb the heat; this is used to make the Tent's interior between 10 to 15 degrees cooler than outside. These tents were earlier used as a refuge from the hot sun and the best insulation on cold desert nights.
