How it started

The idea of KarTent was born in february 2015 in the Netherlands. Jan studied architecture, and graduated on the construction of a cardboard beach house. He met co-founder and industrial designer Wout on a drink, where they started fantisizing what more could be possible with cardboard. Bas joined, a friend and former housemate of Jan. When the three started brainstorming, they stumbled upon a picture of Glastonbury after it had ended. And that is when they came up with the idea. They quickly started contacting cardboard factories to see what was possible. In collaboration with the cardboard factories, the KarTent was developed. The first ‘pilot’ season was conducted at 10 Dutch festivals. And this year, we hope to grow bigger, to spread the cardboard revolution!
