Civil War Canvas Tents
About C&C Sutlery Tents
Our Tents are made with the highest Quality 10.38 oz Sunforger Canvas. The canvas is natural colored and 100% cotton. The strong but lightweight canvas is marine boatshrunk, water repellent and mildew, mold, algea, and fungi resistant. They should give you many, many years of service.
Our tents feature double stitched seams and reinforcements at the corners and grommets and webbing stake loops along the bottom edges. Optional Double Door, Sod Cloth, Ground Cover and Tent Flys are available. We use Industry Standard 36 inch panels on all of our tents.
A Sod Cloth is band of canvas about 10 inches -12 inches wide that is sewn around the bottom, inside of the tent, not including the door. The purpose is to create a 'seal' to the ground to block wind, etc. from entering the tent at the ground level. The Sod Cloth is used instead of straw. Note that the Sod Cloth is not a tent floor, you will need a Ground Cloth to serve that purpose.
A Double Door tent has both a front door and a back door. The primary purpose of the back door is increased ventilation. All of our "A" Frame and Wall Tents are available with the optional Double Door.
A Ground Cloth provides a floor for your tent and helps keep everything clean and dry. Placing a Ground Cloth over the tent Sod Cloth will seal the bottom edges of your tent from wind, debris, and moisture.
The Tent Fly can be mounted at the front of the tent so as to double as shelter space or it can be mounted directly over the tent to protect it from UV rays and adding another moisture barrier layer. The Tent Fly helps keep the tent roof clean and helps keep tree pitch and tar off the tent roof. The Tent Fly overhangs the tent side walls and takes water and snow away from your tent side walls.

How to Care for Your Canvas
The cleaner you keep you canvas tents, flys, and ground cloths, the longer they will last. Mildew grows on dirt, so it is important to clean your canvas before putting it away. To clean our canvas we recommend mild hand dishwashing liquid like Ivory in lukewarm water; about a capful to one gallon. Lay the canvas flat and scrub GENTLY with a rag or a very soft brush. The harder you scrub the more you risk scrubbing off the waterproofing. DO NOT use bleach or any other chemicals. When finished make sure you rinse very well. Any soap left on the canvas could cause the tent to leak.
Make sure the canvas is VERY DRY BEFORE you store it.
We do not sell tent poles. The shipping cost would be prohibitive and you can purchase them at your local home improvement store.
Our Tents are proudly MADE IN USA.
