Establishing Marabut

In Rybna, near Krakow we start the production of first dome tents in Poland. Our first model (“Gwinea”), after many modifications, is still available on the market. 

 1990-95
Pioneers in Poland

By the mid-1990s Marabut was the only manufacturer/supplier of  dome tents in Poland. For many customers Marabut became a synonym for a dome tent. In the following years, tents with Marabut logo  gained popularity among consumers, especially among those most demanding - travellers and globetrotters. Marabut tents took part in many expeditions, reaching the remotest corners of the world.

  1997
Himalaya experience

For the first time in the company’s history, Marabut tents take part in a Himalaya expedition. They are used as base camp tents by Polish winter Nanga Parbat expedition led by Andrzej Zawada.

Developing the Company 

The company moves from Krakow to a neighbouring village of Czernichow. We change the profile of manufactured tents – we focus on expedition tents. Our designers cooperate with professional himalaists. The tents are tested in the most extreme conditions. Significant improvement is achieved in terms of technology, functionality, workmanship and materials.
