The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe
We were approached by Lampost Productions to design and manufacture a tent village comprising a set of 83 authentic looking tents for the movie set. Each tent had to be unique, of a high quality and able to maintain this appearance throughout the duration of the shoot. To achieve the required look of authenticity, elegance and luxury the Set Designers specified that the tents be made of silk and all other materials had to be period authentic including the use of hemp rope. The silk had to be reinforced with a medium weight canves backing before it could function structurally as a tent.
