HISTORY OF RAJ TENT CLUB


The origins of Raj Tent Club lie in Rajasthan, India.

During the early to mid 1990’s our late designer Clarissa Mitchell, who was living in Jodhpur, started to make decorative tents in partnership with the Maharaja, using traditional designs with a modern touch. In doing so, they revived the tent industry in Rajasthan which had almost disappeared, and helped to preserve many ancient skills such as block printing, embroidery, mirror work and tassel making that are used in the making of the tents.

In 1996, Clarissa met up with Nicola Marks, our current Managing Director, and together they launched Raj Tent Club in London the following year.

Raj Tent Club was the first company to introduce decorative tents to the UK event industry and has remained an industry leader to the present day. Initially, the company only sold the tents, but we quickly realised that our tents were ideal for corporate events, weddings and other private celebrations and so the rental division of our company was started. We now provide beautiful tent installations for over 200 events per year. We work all over the UK and over the years we have provided tents for events in France, Italy, Portugal, Ireland, Switzerland, Bahrain and Qatar.

 

In 2011, our sister company in New Zealand was formed, so I suppose you can now say that the sun never sets on Raj Tent Club!

 

All our tents can be lined with beautiful block print linings and there is a wide choice of lighting, rugs, furniture, accessories and props to go inside them. For outside the tents we can provide sunshades, parasols and garden furniture, ideal for summer events.

 

In 2015, our on line shop was launched and now you can buy many of the items that were originally only for rental, plus much, much more.

Raj Tent Club Shop has become a kind of online mini department store, where you can buy tents and parasols, furniture, homewares, vintage one off pieces, rugs, throws and even Christmas decorations.

 

It is our aim as a company to support traditional handicrafts and to provide ethically made products of high quality from around the world.
