PUEBCO Vintage Tent Fabric Pet Bed
$90.00 – $140.00
Note: This product is made by repurposing used camping tents. Because the material was overworked in the harsh environment of the open air and elements, there was dirt, rust, tears and holes accompanying it. Friction causes dirt and dyes to transfer to other things such as clothing. Because the fabric weakens due to aged deterioration, it may break or be broken by washing. Color and design will be assorted.
“I am not sure what this could be used for, but let’s just buy it anyways.” Because of my habit, I bought something like a shallow bucket shape made from military cloth when visiting a flea market in the United Kingdom. I was informed by an exhibitor that the cloth bucket was laid on the ground by soldiers taking showers outside. This was hard to believe but I was attracted to its shape anyways.
A few years later, when we talked about making a bed for pets, I remembered that cloth military bucket and used it as inspiration to create our own. The fabric was reused from tents sold by the military. After attaching rope and sewing it together, we washed it to look like well worn old jeans. We had several animals sleep in the trial product and they seemed quite comfortable.”
