How to Build a Bedouin Tent
This article was copied from http://www.terrastellar.com/tent/index.html, which is now defunct. I saved it for posterity. It is not my intention to infringe on copyright. I felt this was of extreme importance since the instructions/details for making a bedouin tent is practically non-existant on the internet and this was the best article I ever found on how to put one together. Basically, bedouin tent canvas is rectangular and woven out of brown/black goat hair. These pictures demonstrate how to set it up.
