Story of the Cacoon      

Before we begin, a short introduction.
Nick and Sarah are a husband and wife team.
Their background is in designing and making sails for ocean-going yachts.
They're also experts in architectural fabric and textile technology for onshore structures.
Nick, who started out as a fine furniture maker, is no stranger to creating unique tensile structures with fabric. He's worked on projects like The Eden Project and the Alpine House at Kew Gardens.
He was commissioned to find a new concept in a post-treatment relaxation chair or hammock by 'The Scarlet', luxury Spa Hotel in Cornwall.
And now the star of the show; the Cacoon...

The inspiration

The idea for the Cacoon was born on a Mexican holiday, and sparked by nature.
During a jungle trek we came across a colony of tiny hanging nests; safe little bolt-holes created by the Weaver bird.
We were both immediately struck by their unique beauty; they were so peaceful.
After our long, hot day's trekking we were enjoying some great food and a few margaritas when inspiration struck.
A long flight home and months of design, iteration and rigorous testing later, our interpretation was complete; the Cacoon.
Just like the Weaver bird, you too can hide away, sheltered and cocooned, but still in touch with your surroundings.

Colours and Fabric

The Cacoons are currently available in 11 colours.
All our Cacoons are made using fabrics developed for the high demands of the marine and camping industries. Anti-mould treated and water repelant, we use a mix of cotton and polyester in order to retain the soft feel of natural canvas while achieving the longevity of a technical fabric.
