Amongst its deckchairs and parasols, the website Deckchair Stripes also stocks this somewhat more unusual product for outdoor use, the classic Art Deco Beach Changing Tent.
Beach Changing Tents were all the rage back in the 1920s, when they were pretty much essential for a day out at the beach, to allow fashionable ladies to enjoy bathing without sacrificing their modesty. In this clever design, the tent folds up into what looks like an ordinary beach bag with a wooden handle, but it drops down from the bag, and is easily assembled into a tent. It even has a pocket for your belongings, a towel loop and a hook to hang up your clothes. It is available in a choice of green or blue colourways, and costs £145.
