The Zeltbahn, or German shelter quarter, is a beautiful piece of multifunction modular design. It is a triangle pattern mainly used as a wet weather poncho or as some shelter.
Combined, they can be used as a tent construction from a four-person tent up to a large communal space covering 25 square meters using sixteen Zeltbahns. Other uses include a stretcher to carry away injured soldiers or a flotation device. It was introduced into the German army in 1931 and constructed out of a water-repellent cotton fabric called "Makostoff".
At the start of the 80s Massimo Osti used the Zeltbahn for inspiration in his first Stone Island collection launched in spring summer 1982. Osti reengineered the Zeltbahn by adding a hood and wide cuffs to prevent water from entering the sleeves. Osti used an innovative fabric called "Tela Stella," a double-sided cotton canvas.
With the Stone Island 40th Anniversary celebrations going on, they have released a modern reinterpretation of the 982 Tela Stella. Modern construction is made from a light, paper-effect, non-woven fabric composed of compacted nylon fibres, protected on the outsides.
