Love the zelts! you'll need to clean up the buttons a bit to stop any more rust bleeding
I can tell you it was made in Wesslar (Hessen-Nassau).

nice one! i just got my first zeltbahn recently and ours look similar. mine also had the rust on the buttons but i chose to remove them and thoroughly clean the rust off. unfortunately , some rust bled into the material prior to my owning it. will you try to prevent the future rust damage as i had?
