Bushcraft Spain X WAY&FARER Oilskin Tarp

Introducing the Bushcraft Spain X WAY&FARER tarp and ground cover!

Bushcraft Spain are the original, authentic manufacturers of oilskin tarps and shelters in Europe. and we’re super excited to be collaborating with them, starting with the two most sought after products: the handmade Oilskin Tarp & Ground Cover!

Right around the world, Bushcraft Spain are known as leaders of the industry, & rightfully so due to their superior craftsmanship, clever design and for selecting only premium grade, sustainable materials to hand make the best oilskin products available.

Bushcraft Spain are best known for their 100% cotton canvas oilskin tarps. Each tarp is handmade by Spanish artisans then treated with a natural oil and wax formula for extreme waterproofing and durability.

We’ve been selling the 3×3 metre tarp for around 12 months & with a lot of demand for a slightly more compact and affordable option. Right now, we’ve just now added the 2.5 x 2.5 metre version to our online camping shop that has a WAY&FARER leather label fitted right beside the Bushcraft Spain one!

The oilskin treatment means that the tarps and totally weather and rain proof, and with the 19 reinforced loop holes around each edge and along the centre seam, they can handle heavy winds and harsh, constant strain. The layout of the heavy duty loops allows it to be set up a wide range of options, one being the diamond configuration in the photo above.

When you’re sleeping out in nature under your tarp, for some extra comfort and warmth, make sure to use the this canvas ground cover. With a 2 x 2.5 metre footprint, it fits well beneath the tarp shelter. It has an oilskin base with with a wool lining on the top, making it waterproof, comfortable and it can be flipped over and used as a backup tarp if the weather turns for the worse during a picnic.

With a different camping set-up, it can be used as an outdoor rug, we usually throw ours down next to the caravan and sit on it at the end of the day, We end up taking it just about everywhere and pull it out with pride on all sorts of occasions.

Head out to nature and sleep in the bush following the fashion of early explorers. Enjoy minimalist camping with the best possible quality oilskin tarp and ground cover that will easily be with you for life. If they’re not passed down to future generations and the life of the tarp finally comes to an end, they’re 100% biodegradable and will return to nature once buried, as they’re completely made of natural materials (other than the BCS label).

Both of these items come with free shipping throughout Australia, dispatched from the Grampians Victoria. You can purchase them below or take a look at what else we have on our store, here.

We’ll be bringing out a wider range of Bushcraft Spain X WAY&AFRER products soon enough, in the meantime, take a look at the rest of our range below. Unlike the 2.5×2.5 tarp and ground cover that are shipped from Victoria, almost all of the following range is sent direct from Spain, but don’t worry, we’ll still cover the shipping and as we have sent via aire freight, they only usually take about 5-8 days to arrive.
