For easier transport, we have introduced a lighter 200gsm rendition, which is around 6kg lighter in carry weight and provides quicker drying time with no compromise on quality or luxury. 200gsm PolyCotton Canvas obtains a perfect balance and claims the best qualities from both contrasting fabrics.



A unique and well thought out cotton (65%) and polyester (35%) blend, designed with the needs and glamping goals of modern day campers, and campsite owners in mind. This is a versatile and breathable fabric, which has been treated with a water, UV, and rot repelling agent and for that, has an extremely successful proven track record amongst pro campers and large scale campsites. Weighing in lighter but just as traditional looking as our 100% Cotton, and heavier but just as practical as tents in our Oxford range.


Bought the 4m poly cotton bell tent and also the protective cover, both excellent, the cover was well worth the money.

• 100% cotton • 

- 285GSM -  

A fully natural, fully breathable 100% cotton fibres, which has also been treated with a water, rot & UV repelling agent and is also available in an effortlessly-cool earthy coffee colour. Going cotton allows you and your companions maximum breathability, durability and warmth... attributes well worth the slight increased weight load.Just like the environments hosting your pitch-perfect moments, this fabric embodies 100% natural fibres, allowing you and your camping companions to truly be 'at one with nature'. Cotton fabric provides you and your tent with full breathability, meaning cooler and more comfortable camps in summer, and no condensation which effectively reduces risk of mould. Please note, whilst this fabric can safely have a stove installed, the 285gsm IS NOT fire retardant.

- 320GSM - 

New, improved and fire approved... This is Boutique's thickest and heaviest fabric, weighing in at an impressive 320gsm, which effectively increases robustness and subsequently reduces unwanted morning sunlight. Breathable, insulating and water resistant, our fire retardant canvas is made from 100% cotton and has the option to have an integrated stove hole for an easy and practical Wood Burning Stove installation.  

 BS 7837:1996 - Specification for flammability performance for textiles used in the construction of marquees and similar textile structures.


Fantastic. If you are looking for top quality tents then go no further. I have the star 5m fire retardant with stove hole and it's awesome.

by Richard

Excellent quality and service. The fire retardant version is very well made with strong hardware. The tent goes up easily and can be done with one person.

Bought one each of the 4m and 5m fire-proof bell tents for our glamping business, Ling Safari... what a great purchase!

 We were often asked by some of our regular customers if there was a fabric that was cost effective and hard wearing but would still give you the traditional look and feel of our traditional canvas tents. Oxford 230GSM is a thick, premium and waterproof synthetic man made polyester, perfect for weekend trips, festivals, garden glamping and events. As well as being quick drying and lighter than Cotton Canvas, it’s also more robust against rot, mould and mildew, making it the ideal choice for campers seeking a glam, stand-out tent, without taking on the additional care and upkeep associated with canvas.



The lightest ‘get up and go’ fabric in the range. With tents in this fabric weighing as little as 13KG, it’s particularly popular amongst busy families, regular festival goers, and party hire companies. The main advantages of this fabric are the quick drying, light weight and 0-no maintenance elements. All of our polyester tents are made from a premium, thicker and hard-wearing quality polyester material, please do not compare our polyester tents to cheaper poor made alternatives on the market.

As Oxford is a synthetic and non-breathable material, for safety and comfortability, we do not recommend stove installations. As with all polyester tents, condensation can naturally occur, so it is important to allow as much ventilation as possible.


We were so eager after putting it up in the the garden that we slept in it that night! Easy to put up, fabric and zips look really strong

We love our Oxford Bell Tent. The bag is naturally extremely heavy but the tent is so easy to put up.

• Waterproofing •

We have created a purpose built rain test facility at our factory. We vigorously rain test all our new tent designs, fabrics etc making sure our all our tents are water tight.

Our weekender tents achieve an outstanding hydrostatic rating of 3000mm HH due to their polyester nature which grants you excellent protection from heavy rain.

Our canvas tents are all treated with water resistant agents which grants them good water resistant capability to keep you warm and dry during rainy nights when out camping.
