Bedouins, perhaps one of the most iconic tribes of Arabia, can trace the origin of their name back to the expression “desert dwellers” in the Arabic language. In a sense, being a desert dweller is also the reality of most Arabian people, and a common trait among many other groups of people around the world. The Bedouin nomadic desert-dwelling existence, which has been so cleverly romanticized by Hollywood films such as Lawrence of Arabia, is iconically inscribed in the collective imagination by a single item: the tent.

Despite the move towards more permanent dwellings in most places in the world, tents have not fallen by the wayside. In fact, tents have more varied and more important uses than perhaps at any other time in history. It is true, however, that tents have evolved to become much more complex than ever before. Today, tents can be equipped with modern climate control systems and be erected to extremely large sizes, some even resemble futuristic space colonies. There are tents designed to hold yachts, tents large enough to host entire conventions and shopping entire malls, and tents for living in. And the high level of mobility and quick deployment of these modern tents make them natural choices to assist troops in any military operations and to provide fast relief for those affected by natural disasters.

Albaddad Group established, in Abu Dhabi in 1971, are master artisans specialized in the production of luxury tents and temporary structural solutions. Founded by Mr. Hussain Al Baddad to supply tents to the royal family of Abu Dhabi in addition to other officials and authorities, in addition to individual clients.
