zeltbahn made with italian camo

Article about: This zeltbahn was found in northern Slovenia. Although the camo cloth is genuine italian from ww2, the cut is not for an italian zelt. My guess is that was field made by german soldiers, ope

    those are italian standard "teli tenda" of various eras. I've owned some of each type in the years. they were fairly common here in Italy. The cut of mine is different though. It is difficult to render that through pics.

    Hello,
    Zeller's item is "field made", no question about it.
    Were all sew-in grommets, buttons or specific details of contruction removed as the neck flap ?
    I don't think so but i might be wrong as anybody...
    German Zeltbahnen made of italian camo material as not common that's right, but they're not rare either. I've seen many of them in my collecting life, far more than i've seen rotated buttonholes, orange/brown camo or carbon spotted Zeltbahnen...If you look for one "italian" zelt, you can wait six months to a year to find one...if you look for a carbon spotted Zelt, then you can wait for your lifetime...
    At the contrary of what it written everywhere, that's right that some WSS & Polizei units used fieldmade garments made of italian camo material and Italian shelter quarters, but the main use of italian camo material was made within the Wehrmacht Heer...WSS were just more photographed for obvious propaganda reasons...
    Thanks
