Collection: Italian Telo Mimetco M1929 CAMO

In 1929, Italy produced the revolutionary ‘telo tenda’ shelter-half using ‘telo mimetico’, the first printed camouflage fabric issued to individual troops. Although the pattern is not particularly effective, because of the short distance over which it repeats, it is the world’s longest-serving camouflage design – apart from changes in color schemes, this pattern was used into the 1990s.
