If you’ve ever been to a festival you might recognise this scenario:
It’s a month before the festival and you get an email. ‘We’ve announced the dressing up theme!’ the festival organisers tell you. ‘This year it’s post-apocalypse Alice in Wonderland/1970s disco mermaid/pansexual party pirates!’ (Delete as appropriate.)
You set to work on your costume – gluing scales to your sparkly tights, fashioning a hat made entirely from cucumbers, whatever. You’re proud of your look, you’ve nailed it, you’re ready to go and FESTIVALISE.
Then you get there and it pisses down with rain and no one sees your hand-sequinned pirate blouse because you have to spend the whole time in a large waterproof mac.
If this sounds all too familiar then this is the competition for you. Honestly, it couldn’t be a better fit. You’ve come to the right place. You’ve arrived.
Read on my friend, read on.
Wouldn’t it be great if there was an alternative to the full length coat? Something that kept you dry, but also allowed you to show off your hand-crafted festival garb? Something durable though – sustainable – because you care about the environment and haven’t used a plastic straw since 2016.
Oh, and you don’t want to have to carry it around once the sun comes out because you need your hands free for swigging back the cider and throwing shapes.
What you need is a Carny Valley cape.
Designed and made in the UK, Carny Valley capes are designed to compliment your outfit, not cover it up, so you can have adventures outside in style, whatever the weather. They are made from waxed cotton, unisex, durable – basically made to last, not to chuck in the bin for the landfill at the end of your weekend.
They come as a single or double layer, are available in a gorgeous range of colours, and come with a clip so you can fix it to your belt or bum bag when you’re not using it. Plus how can you possibly wear a cape and NOT feel like a superhero?
Or potentially a super villain, depending on your mood.
*imagines cat on lap*
If you haven’t already rushed off to the Carny Valley website to buy one, which I’m assuming you probably have, then Cat, the lovely lady/festival goer/hula hoop teacher who designed these capes has said I can give one away! How kind is that?? The single layer capes start from £74.99, so this is a AWESOME prize.
She’s a new business, and keen to spread the word, so I’m hoping that you guys will do me a solid and support her.
