Jon Santos's Houndstooth Dogtent


Common Space designer Jon Santos created this handsome Houndstooth Dogtent for the first annual Freemans Sporting Club design/build camping trip. Jon says:

The design initiative called for a homemade primitive luxury commodity, "taking the rough out of roughing it." I reached out to my good friend Matt Penrose who works for Cereplast, a small company which distributes (yet to be properly termed) bio-degradeable plastic. We made a Dogtent for Louie, his boxer. One that can be rolled up and put into its own bag. Early design ideas were very ambitious but ultimately we were at the mercy of working with a material that was only available to us in sheet form, rolled up. Loomstate was nice enough to donate some organic cotton for the tent lining.
