10 reasons a Lotus Belle tent is better than a bell tent



1) You can fit a lot more in a Lotus Belle tent. The walls of a bell tent are short meaning the roof incline starts sooner so there is less usable space, whereas that curve we’ve designed to give the “lotus-bulb” look isn’t just for show (although it does look pretty fine), it also gives you plenty of room for furniture or dancing or yoga or whatever you like doing in your Lotus Belle tent. For those with a maths brain the 4m tent is actually 4.5m at its widest point thanks to that curve, which gives heaps more volume.

After gallivanting around the world for the past few years and eyeing up festival chic from Secret Garden Party to Burning Man, it seemed fitting that my first New Zealand Fashion Week Show in 5 years was by the stalwarts of NZ street wear; Stolen Girlfriends Club. Music and fashion have always shared a very symbiotic relationship, but this is always very true of a Stolen Girlfriends Club show.

Luxury Festival Camping with Lotus Belle

It’s been a busy winter and not much time for blogging! Normally at this time of year I would be making my way due north from New Zealand for the festival season in the UK, but this year I’m having a hiatus.

Wilderness Festival kicks off Friday 9th and runs...

Introducing the Outback Canvas Glamping Tent

Anyone would think it was high summer with how busy it’s been! Winter is most certainly upon us at Lotus Belle NZ, but it hasn’t stopped the growing interest in Lotus Belle tents. We have been working on designing a new tent called the Lotus Belle Outback. This was largely in response to coming up with a design that would be more suited to the Southern Hemisphere and specifically AUSTRALIA, where it’s hot and dry and there are loads of creepy crawlies! I feel proud to have helped collaborate on this project with Harriet Seddon who is the brainchild behind...
