Home for the Homeless / tent for tramps

Home for the Homeless
Home for the Homeless

An estimated 100 million people were homeless worldwide. Many of them can only find places like street corners, parks, or benches to sleep, without protection from wind, damp or cold.
Home for the Homeless is a kind of tent for tramps, made of a special material named “Emergency Blanket”, which has good warm keeping performance, small volume and light weight. There is an air charging cell to inflate and deflate the tent before and after using it, and an elastic structure in the bottom of the tent to be used for the tent’s storage.
This portable tent provides a movable and low-cost home for tramps, which can be held in hand by day.
