Materials

The Virgin Tents are fabricated using only high quality materials. The frames are designed for strength, stability, and durability. The fabrics are heavy gauge canvases chosen for quality, resistance & performance. An important consideration in choosing a tent is the canvas 'weight': GargTents use a canvas whose 'weight' or thickness means that its occupants are not silhouetted by internal lighting at night for all to see.....

The roof consists of four layers of fabric, providing better protection against rain and heat. The air pockets in between the layers works like an insulator. The Virgin Tent has huge windows all around. Open up to the cooler air in the evenings and close the windows again before going to sleep. The thick fabric keeps the tent dark inside, even in bright daylight, resulting the cool feelings.

The finished product would allow a unique concept that is perfectly suited to almost any environment whether it be desert, tropical rain forest or coastal dunes. On top of that the tents are relatively inexpensive, environmentally sensitive and above all extremely comfortable and elegant.

As it only takes a few hours to erect The Virgin Tent, it can therefore be pulled down just as quickly.
