Cowboy and American Indians
The handicraft business “Westernbedarf Halang“ is working since 1990 for adventurer, fans of camping and outdoor, personalities who enjoy the special kind of freedom and free time experiences, for friends of historical groups who like to empathise authentically the life of past adventures in their free time.
Over the past years our tent factory has developed into one of the leading producers of historic tents at home and abroad. Our specialities are true to original tepees, military-tents, baroque-tents and historic tents of different ages of the contemporary history. The basis of our tent constructions are traditional sources.
But we design and produce also tents for travelling horsemen and other mobile persons, lodges as well as original tarpaulins as protection against sun and wind. We use solely high quality fabric. The fabric is equipped especially for our climatic conditions so that a long durability is guaranteed. The wood is knocked down in our local forests.
We set a high value on historical documented clothing and equipment for the re-enactment of historical events. If desired we sew chaps and western clothing of fine deerskin according to the standard of the Indians and trappers as well as we bind leathern bull and riding crops. Our factory is responsible for this.
Today our factory, established on the tradition of leather craft in Freiberg, specialised in the changing and the repairing of heavy leathers for bikers.
The personal background of Eva-Maria and Hartmut Halang helps to realise the business concept.
Long before the foundation of the handicraft business “Westernbedarf Halang“ Eva-Maria and Hartmut Halang dealed quite intensive with the history of the natives and the settlement of the North American continent as well as the historical documented re-enactment of the past ages. They sewed their first tepee after original documents of the Sioux-Indians, designed and tailored clothes and uniforms for hobby Indians and settlers after authentic documents. From leather they made chaps and western clothing after the role model of the Indians and trappers. Leathern bull and riding crops were bound. Halangs and their friends looked after their hobby, to re-enact the American history, with a lot of love of detail.
Today our clients appreciate especially the personal contact with the „boss“. For a long durability of the tepees a proper installation and a permanent care are necessary. A professional instruction of installation, if desired an on-site installation, the dismounting at the end of the season and the storage in the winter, the procurement of laundry and re-impregnation if necessary and the repair, all this is taken by Hartmut Halang himself.
