Canvas is 100% cotton and it is predictable to everyone that
fabric made from cotton is always shrinks to some extents.
You should expect your tent to be smaller after the tent has
been preconditioned. After years of experience with fabrics,
it could not be feasible to measure the exact amount of shrinkage
of cotton, thus, all tents made from natural fibres, like
cotton, will shrink and this will affect the measurements
of the tent and finished size.
Although, comical treatment is given to make the fabric fire-proof,
yet there is possibility to catch the fire when flame source
contact it directly. All possible measures should be applied
to reduce the chances of fire incident by the users.
We cannot challenge to the nature. High intensity of winds
can cause to damage the tents and frames. Precautionary measure
may be taken into consideration while using all the stakes
and ropes provided, even using a freestanding frame. Regular
checking of stakes and tightening the ropes be ensured if
they loosen during the period of high winds.
It will be in the interest of user to pay proper care and
ideal use of tent, which will certainly enhance the life of
tent for many seasons.
