The Joe Browns Ultimate Festival Jacket

We’ve designed a jacket that not only looks perfectly stylish for festivals, in a floral summery print, but is full to the brim with hidden gadgets and gismos so you’ll want for nothing on your camping weekend!

 

Ultimate Festival Jacket

The showerproof jacket includes a blow-up inflatable pillow hood, a hidden drinks compartment and straw, bottle opener zip, wind-up phone charger, wet wipe dispenser, detachable LED light and a locked pocket for your valuables.

 

We’re not yet able to sell the jacket, as it’s still in the testing process, however if there’s enough interest in it, it may well be on sale soon!

Our designer George, behind the jacket, said: “We wanted to make something that was fun, stylish and really practical. We had a brainstorming session in the office of all the problems we faced at festivals, then tried to come up with solutions on how to fix them.

 

There’s still some tweaks that need to be made on the jacket, but we’re really pleased with how it’s come out and are intrigued to see what people make of it, or if anyone has any other suggestions that could make it even better!”

Colourful festivals

The 5 Most Colourful Festivals of the world

Whether you’re a parent, grandparent, teen or child some of the best memories you’ll have will be from festivals. They bring together all the best things in life – family, friends, music, lights, flowers, food, drink and an electric atmosphere that’s hard to find anywhere else.

 

Festivals are ritualized all over the globe, celebrating all sorts of religions and cultures, with colour undoubtedly playing a huge part.

 

Here’s a countdown to what we think are the top 5 most colourful festivals in the world:

 

5. Harbin International Ice festival, China:

The International Ice and Snow Festival, held in Harbin in north east China is the coolest winter festival in the world. It begins on January 5th each year and goes on for about a month with Ice Lantern Show at nights, Snow Sculpture Art Exhibitions, ice bars, a Siberian Tiger Park visit and diving performances.

4. Loy Krathong Festival, Sukothai, Thailand:

The Loy Krathong is a Thai festival celebrated each year on the full moon of the twelfth lunar to pay homage to the water goddess, drive away bad luck and to seek forgiveness. Small boats with flowers adorning them, usually in the shape of lotus, are released in the water by people carrying away bad luck from their lives. This looks absolutely stunning!

3. Carnivale de Venezia, Venice, Italy:

The carnival of Venice attracts 3 million tourists each year. Started back in 14th century to commemorate the victory of Venice over Ulrico, the fest begins after Christmas and ends a day before Lent. People wear colourful and beautiful masks, which was originally so you couldn’t tell between ordinary people and nobility and everyone has a right old party!

2. Holi

Popularly known as the festival of colours, Holi is celebrated throughout north India on the full moon of the month of March. The festival is about spreading the feeling of togetherness in the society and people let their hair down throwing bright colours over each other while dancing to the rhythm of holi songs – awesome.

1.Carnival of Rio De Janeiro, Brazil:

It has to be the world’s most famous carnival that runs six days before lent attracting two million people per day! The top samba schools from the country compete with their rivals bringing the streets alive with gorgeously sexy costumes, the loudest music and incredible dances.
