If Only Occupy Wall Street Had FieldCandy Tents
If you think the notion of camping in style is pre-TENT-ious, then these designer tents from FieldCandy tents are not for you. However, if you can dig on the idea of sleeping inside a cloak of rayguns designed by the artist responsible for David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust album cover (Terry Pastor), continue reading.
FieldCandy is an exciting design-led brand of tents. We are here to inject colour, creativity and fun into the camping space by offering a range of totally unexpected designs. A tent should say something about who’s inside it, our tents are fun, exciting, iconic, individual and simply unmissable.
“Unmissable” is a bit of an understatement. Imagine quite innocently trekking through the woods and being confronted by an eye-popping array of rayguns and jellybeans or a giant chunk of cheese?
As something of an anglophile, I’m excited by FieldCandy’s utterly UK-centric approach. Their flysheets are printed in the UK using fabric manufactured in the UK. The printed fabric is then machined by another specialist in the UK.
The 100% natural cotton inner tent is produced in China using regionally grown cotton. The aluminum tent poles and pegs are manufactured using an acid-free process known to be less environmentally damaging than conventional methods. All of FieldCandy’s accessories are manufactured by specialist producers in the UK and Europe. Despite all that Euro stuff, FieldCandy ships the tents worldwide.
Luxury lodgings like these don’t come cheap. Much like limited edition artwork, FieldCandy tents are made in small amounts and priced accordingly. You can see the tents from all angles and check price and availability on their fun website. Click through for a few more of my favorite FieldCandy tents from their current catalog.
