Big BKF Palermo army cot crafted using best Argentinian vegetable tanned leather, foldable army cot, easy to carry anywhere.

Our army cot is made out of wood with metal swivel joints and leather. The original army cot was designed by Joseph B. Fenby and patented in the United States in 1881. It was used in military campaigns, where it was ideal because it was designed as a bed and also easy to fold up compactly while still being comfortable.

Our army cot is made by argentinian special wood from the Patagonia called lenga fueguina and high quality polo leather handmade dyed and hides environmentally-friendly vegetable-tanned from Argentina.

The frame wood becomes from a tree that contains special characteristcs in terms of flexibility and lightness, it's a tree from Patagonia that supports more than 200 km/h of wind force. Our artisans hand dyed the frames and we offer them in 3 color variations: Natural, Oak and Wengue (black).

All our leather is 100% vegetable tanned and the surface of the leather is not modified. Vegetable-tanned leather has a limited risk to consumer's health, including allergies and a reduced environmental impact, since it is manufactured with almost no chemical substances. It is one of a few products that is both high quality and environmentally friendly at the same time. Vegetable tanning uses processes which have been passed on for decades from generation to generation of master artisans. We use leather with a thickness of at least 3.2 mm and designed a double border, making the leather stronger, up to 6.4 mm thick.

Since Argentinian cattle spend most of their life roaming the famous pampa grass plains, nature will leave marks and wrinkles, reflecting a natural product made from the best leather in the world, Argentinian.

100% made by hands of argentine artisans.

Foldable ideal to ship anywhere in the world or carry with you on your flight home from Buenos Aires.
