Description and history of the Swiss Tents :

A Swiss Tent comprises many fabric sheets or other similar material that can be used for draping. The material is draped in layers and attached to the fixed pole frames set-up as a prerequisite. Sometimes, to give more strength to the tent, the layers are attached to the supporting ropes as well. 

The tents can be customized based on the preferences and requirements and can either be small or large depending on the specification as mentioned by the customer.

These tents were used way back in ancient times, nearly around 10,000 BCE to 4,000 BCE. Back then, it was utilized by the Aboriginal tribes from Canada of the Indian plains and also by the American tribes.

These tents were an updated version of the tipi tent and were the first-ever widely used tent. They generally have a conical top, and within this peak, there is a small hole for the smoke to pass out.
