About TentacleStudio

Sales 524
On Etsy since 2014

We started in professional theatre. Now we ship worldwide, and our clients include Dior, Gaga, and The Masked Singer!

Our main website: https://www.tentaclestudio.com
We are Bev Shalts and Mike Petty. We first met many years ago, whilst creating costumes and props for big West End musicals in London. It was high-stress work: and for 5 years we were creative, problem-solving ninjas who never slept! It was great fun, and we learnt a lot, but eventually the chaos, exhaustion and low budgets started to drive us crazy. Could we create beautiful things, without having to compromise? We wanted to try.

So we quit our theatre jobs, spent every penny we had on fine materials, and threw ourselves into producing our own creations. We sold them whilst travelling around Europe, and quickly made more, relishing the inspiration and new skills we gained along the way.

Fast forward 25 years, and here we are. Over the years, we’ve vastly expanded our range, and our workshop is nestled just outside Amsterdam in the heart of the tulip growing area. We sell our creations worldwide via our own webshop and our Etsy store (where you are now!) and our custom clients include international celebrities, stylists, ad agencies and cultural foundations.

But some things haven’t changed. Everything in Tentacle Studio is still made by hand, by us, and we make sure that you, our customers, get our creations in good time for your deadline. We are still exploring new ideas, and creating unique things that don't exist anywhere else in the world. And we still love to see people have fun and get transformed by our creations!
CONTACT US: If you've got any questions, don't be shy! We're just a phone call or an email away. (Please try to phone during European business hours)
