Benefit from our many years of experience with natural tents.


Vladimir Hulín, on the far left of the picture, sewed the first tent out of a cotton fabric as head of a scout group.

The company «HUMI» was founded by Vladimir and Ilona Hulín. For the time being, however, she concentrated only on the production of sleeping bags.

Tent production started only after the foundation of the company "MARO" by M. Rosenheim.

Vladimir Hulín took over the management of the company "FAM" based in Mseno CZ.
Former founders were J. Novak and J. Franta.

The two young companies "MARO" and "FAM" merged to become the largest manufacturer of outdoor tents in Central Europe. The company name was taken over by «FAM». The production of the first Indian tipis from our standard cotton quality has been started in production.


Tomas Bruder, Pavel Beco's relations in the Czech Republic led to a partnership with the company "FAM". Experiences were exchanged thereby and first orders over "FAM TIPI HOF GMBH" accepted also in Switzerland. This was the birth of today Zeltwelt.

The official founder was the company "FAM WEST" in Germany and "FAM TIPI HOF GmbH" was considered a subsidiary for Switzerland. Takeover of the management of Tomas and Bernadette Beco.
