INFORMATION ABOUT THE TIPI

Tipi_Zeltwelt.ch_7

The tipi is an Indian tent that is in perfect harmony with nature and can be set up without the use of plastic or metal. It fits harmoniously into any landscape and offers extremely stylish and romantic accommodation. The unusually high canopy allows a lot of freedom of movement. For the cold days, an open fire in the middle of the tent warms and a sophisticated ventilation system ensures a pleasant room climate when it is hot. Despite its outstanding size, a tipi is extremely stable.


FORM

Tipi_Form_Zeltwelt. Ch

The tipi is a backward sloping cone with an egg-shaped floor plan. This asymmetrical shape has many advantages. The steeper rear wall is better able to withstand the strong westerly winds and in the front part the smoke opening is directly above the fireplace. The smoke flaps aligned with the wind serve for optimal smoke extraction.


THE SIZES

The ideal size cannot be determined across the board. The question arises, what are your needs and what would you like to realize in your tipi.

  • Will the tepee stop all year?
  • Would you like to make a fire in the tepee?
  • How many people will use the tepee?
  • Will you stay in the tepee regularly and with how many people?
  • How would you like to set up in the tepee?

THE SITE

FAM Cadsky (41)

As far as possible, the Indians set up camps in valleys by rivers and streams and, in harmony with nature, used all the opportunities that the landscape offered them. Most of the time the tents were set up in one or more rows according to the number. Regardless of whether we camp in the great outdoors or perhaps in our own garden, the same basic conditions apply to all tipis. A level, dry floor should be chosen. Preferably on a slightly elevated location so that no water collects in the ground during long periods of rain. There should be enough space around the tent. A distance of at least 1m from the edge of the tent to the next obstacle would be ideal, in order to be able to bring the smoke flap rods into the correct position in strong winds.

  • Where does the strongest wind blow?
  • Can I direct the entrance to the east?
  • Are trees or branches in the way?
  • Is there enough space to align the smoke damper bars?
  • Is the solar radiation sufficient so that the shell can dry again and again?

THE USE & THE AREA OF APPLICATION

The tipi has a wide range of uses and is used and inhabited by people who are close to nature. It is ideal for groups of all kinds. The round shape of the tipi allows the residents to immerse themselves in an intimate atmosphere that promotes a feeling of togetherness, respect and tolerance. The mood in a tipi is always very positive and relaxing for the people who stay in it. More and more people appreciate this ingenious tent construction technique and anyone who has fallen under the spell of a tipi will not forget their experiences so quickly.
