Design Concept

The Free Spirits brand champions a philosophy of equilibrium; our designs do not skew towards any extreme. Rather than being the lightest or the most voluminous, our products strive for a harmonious balance between functionality, space, weight, and aesthetics, mirroring the ideal balance one should aim for in life.

The principle of moderation posits that "moderation" is the essential foundation for all entities in the cosmos, and "harmony" represents the optimal route for individuals to attain this state of "moderation." Achieving this equilibrium of "moderation and harmony" sets the cosmic order, enabling all elements to flourish within this natural framework.

Environmental Protection

Since 2020, the Spirit of Freedom has embraced the concept of versatility in tent design, committing to the green, low-carbon ethos of recycling and repurposing old materials moving forward.

We've observed that when tents are erected in the wild over long durations, the fabric deteriorates more rapidly than the aluminum tent poles, which enjoy a longer functional life.

Hence, we incorporate pre-used tent poles into the development of new models, making poles BEYOND and Yoto Plus, along with Sky Dome and Sky Dome Plus poles, interchangeable in a recycling effort to conserve energy and promote sustainable environmental practices.
