    While I am not a cloth specialist, maybe the material, and runes, are manufactured by Bevo Wuppertal, and the tabs are actually made at Dachau.
    Or, maybe just the name Bevo is over used when referring to cloth items.
    Just postulating,
    Someone else here will know the answer to this question.

    Besides, I don't think this one falls under the "Dachau made" definition.
    Here is what I would expect the reverse of a "Dachau" tab to look like.
    Latvian SS Collar Tab

    Interesting line of questioning, probably simple misuse of the term BeVo by the collector community.
    I've often considered flat woven as insignia BeVo style manufacture, the OP with the runes incorporated into the background material and not sewn onto a backing material would be a BeVo style at least. While most SS tabs from the Dachau stores where the embroidered type of Foreign Volunteers etc.

    Plenty of runes and totenkopf as well.

    The way I understand it is that this Bevo tab was not made at Dachau. But Dachau did have a supply warehouse where a good portion of unissued SS items that we see today were stored (cufftitles, collar tabs, foreign sleeve shields, sleeve eagles, m43 caps). So this tab could be considered a "Dachau Bringback" since it is unissued.

    Wonderful picture!
    Is there any evidence that BeVo had a warehouse/depot in Dachau itself, a place where its products were sent to from Wuppertal and stored?

    "The SS-owned clothing works...vast majority of clothing was produced, like the army, by numerous civilian firms. They accounted for approximately 80% of the uniform needs of the Waffen-SS; the remainder being being filled by the clothing works in the concentration camps."

    "Dachau continued to operate under the auspices of the SS-Bekleidungswerke, and was the principal depot for SS clothing." From Uniforms of the Waffen SS, by Michael Beaver.
    Just thought it would be interesting to share this information after seeing that picture John.
