Arabian Tents also known as Bedouin tents have been a place of residence for Bedouins from the beginning of time. Different geographical features and variations in the way of life of its inhabitants might have altered its style, but its fundamental characteristics are the same the tent must be able to move, and it must be light. A Bedouin in their homeland in the Arabian Desert uses a black tent, referred to in Arabic as beit al-sha’r also known as the “house of hair”. The tents are made using the hair of domesticated goats and sheep Their design is believed to have come from Mesopotamia. The hair of animals is woven into coarse cloth called fala’if. They are then stitched together. The natural color of the creature is preserved mostly black goat’s hair. There is also the occasionally a little sheep’s wool. This creates the appearance of a streaked brown/black Bedouin tent.

Its size is contingent on the size of the owner or the size of the family. A typical family will have the tent as thin strips that are each seven and a half metres long, and supported by two poles for tents. A significant individual, such as sheikhs of tribal origin or tribal sheikh, will have a more impressive dwelling made up of six wide strips each approximately 20 metres long, and with four poles for tent construction. Anything bigger than this isn’t easily transportable. When the cloth strips are stitched together, they form one large rectangle. Then they are raised and supported by poles for tents, also known as amdan as well as cords for tents (atnab) utilized to keep the sides in place.

A brightly-colored curtain, called qata, is hung in the middle of the tent, dividing it into a separate men’s section for women and a men’s. The women’s area is the largest of the two and is not viewed by anyone other than the proprietor of the tent. Ruaq, also known as tent flaps, are pieces of material that are attached to the sides of the tent. They are hung as a curtain at rear of the tent. They have enough length that they can wrap over the whole tent, and then close it off in the night. The lifespan of a tent’s fabric is approximately five or six years, with new sections that are added and renewed regularly when they get worn out. The spinning of goat’s hair takes place by women from the tribe using the drop spindle, also known as maghzal. This thread then gets spun on an asymmetrical ground loom (natui) which is very portable and easily roll up and carried away when it’s appropriate for tribe members to go on.

A measurement from the past is used to determine the size of the loom for creating the cloth strips with the standard width. This measurement is determined by how long the arm is. Sewing strips together is performed with a group of ladies who work together. It’s an occasion to celebrate. Sewing is a skilled task, since the seams have to be sturdy and long-lasting. Thread made of black goat’s hair is utilized for this purpose. The tent fabric is weaved loosely to permit the dispersal of heat. While the black color is able to absorb heat, it’s between 10 and 15 degrees warmer within the tent than outdoors. The tent offers shade from the scorching sun and provides insulation during cold desert night. In the event of rain, the yarn expands, closing the gaps in the weave, keeping leaks out. The hair of a goat naturally oils, which can also help in repelling water droplets making the tent’s occupants remain dry. The flattened form of the tent’s roof is aerodynamically designed to ensure it is not destroyed by sudden winds or prolonged weather conditions that are typical in deserts.
