Which one’s our tent?

Festival goers often have trouble locating their tents within a sea of muddy green and blue tarpaulin. FieldCandy, a new design-led tent manufacturer no less, may well have the answer

Festival goers often have trouble locating their tents within a sea of muddy green and blue tarpaulin. FieldCandy, a new design-led tent manufacturer no less, may well have the answer…

The company is, apparently, hoping to change the face or camping with its range of limited edition tent designs, some of which have been created by designers Terry Pastor, Philip Gatward and Jonathan Zawada.

There’s a bricks and mortar design (above) and a cosy quilting pattern, while many of the other designs ape objects such as an open book, a suitcase, a massive wedge of cheese and even, er, a slice of melon.

For those conscious of the fact that a huge slice of fruit could well distract from the surrounding countryside, there’s this rather more subtle number, below. But we wouldn’t advise setting it up in a field full of sheep.

FieldCandy tents start at £395 and are available from fieldcandy.com. More of the tent designs on offer are included in the poster, below.
