About De Waard

De Waard is a brand with love. You will feel that with the people that design, produce and sell the tents, but also while using the tent. A De Waard tent is no ordinary tent. It is the base for great memories: a tent for life.

How it all started

History

The origin of De Waard lies in 1948. Machiel de Waard, a sailmaker for the Royal Navy, designed his first tent on camp site de Lepelaar: The Albatros #1. In the need for a tent that does not blow over he started drawing on the back of an envelop. The tent was designed in a shape that could withstand powerfull gusts and offer a pleasant shelter for a family. Until this moment tents were square shaped. The Dutch Autoclub ANWB therefor spoke about "that crazy tent from De Waard".

In that period it was custom to dig trenches around the tent to prevent water coming in. As a solution for this, De Waard introduced a waterproof sewn-in groundsheet underneath the complete tent.

Our passion

The love for tents

Now, 70 years later, the Albatros still exists. Throughout the years the tent saw alterations for the changing needs. In 2015 the Albatros #4 was introduced. A tent with all the features like the original design but altered in size and funtionality to make it suitable for this day and age. It did not stay with just the Albatros for very long. Over and over again we introduce new designs, each one unique but equal in certain features. It is our passion to produce tents of exeptional quality and this will never change. For a De Waard tent we carefully select the best and most durable materials and raw materials. With a great deal of attention our craftsmen mainly hand-make these tents out of those materials. This combination of the best materials and craftsmanship make our tents extremely strong.

The love we have for our tents is like the love of every camping enthusiast. The kind of camping enthusiast that takes his De Waard from the attic to create new memories.
