Our Hamptons Sailcloth Marquees

Our obsession for unique innovations has taken us to all corners of the

world. Following the demand for our Scandinavian Kåtas, we were looking for a more traditional marquee with a modern twist. We finally found it in America and couldn’t wait to get these elegant beauties back to Australia.

Hand-made in America, the captivating Hamptons Marquees are a true blend of style, substance and elegant swagger.

Quality craftsmanship from top to bottom

Cut from the highest quality sailcloth and stitched and seamed to the highest level of accuracy, the Hamptons range is sturdy, watertight but above all, splendid to the eye. The use of crafted timber poles throughout to suspend the cloth adds to the feel of strength and character.

Make them your own

Whether you’re planning a standing-room-only celebration with multiple bars, or a formal sit down dinner and dance floor for a hundred of your closest friends, the spacious “Kismet” (26m x 14m) Hamptons marquee can adapt to you, Our smaller “Komet” (20m x 10m) is just as versatile. For the bigger events of +200 why not link the Kismet and Komet together using our unique Wave Marquee connectors. To complete the look, we have developed a brand new range of bespoke custom-made furniture and styling options.

Our Katas

Our Tents speak for themselves when it comes to their appearance, but their true beauty happens behind the scenes. With their design originating in northern Lapland from the nomadic Sami people, they really are designed to withstand the harshest of conditions whilst still having an elegant and natural appearance.

The Kåtas are very unique and flexible in that they have a patented linking system, allowing the marquees to be joined together in unlimited combinations and numbers to suit your event. All our Katas are hand made out of primarily natural materials sourced in Sweden.

We currently have two types of Teepee Marquees for hire. The first and biggest Kata is our Giant Kata or Giant Hat as it is referred to. The second is our Kungsörnen.

Giant Hat

Our Giant Hat or Giant Kata is our largest marquee for hire it can hold 100 guest for a standup cocktail reception and 72 for a sit down dinner. With sides down its diameter is 10.3metres. However, the sides of the tent can be raised to form a brim, which gives you free air circulation and shade during hot days. It will also increase the diameter to 13metres accommodating up to 128 guests seated. Of course you can join the tipis together to form bigger spaces, as your event requires.


This is our smallest marquee for hire but it can still accommodate 40 people seated. It can also be connected to the Giant Hat for some extra space. For example it can be used as a chill out area, lounge, greeting area or catering tent.

Both these Katas have the additional feature of being able to safely accommodate open fireplaces. Our open fireplace is designed especially for the tipi tents and it provides great warmth in those cooler months whilst creating a wonderful atmosphere that will prove to be the focal point of many parties.
