TIPI FABRICS

The fabrics for the tent covers are manufactured in Europe and the tent covers are processed by our European partner. Our close and long-term cooperation guarantees a constant and high quality. The workmanship of the double-stitched seam is made perfect for the tent by the four stitched layers. For an optimal bracing serve the extremely robust nylon straps. Our tents are the result of many years of continuous development and convince in their quality and workmanship.

All our natural products are twice finished, impregnated and treated against mildew. They are therefore perfectly equipped for outdoor use.

WOOD

Tipi_Stangen_zeltwelt.ch

The wood for our tents is sourced from Europe and carefully selected according to our criteria. Our bars are beaten by hand and peeled clean. They are then dried in a large warehouse for at least half a year. Spruce or pine tips are best for tipi poles. It could also be used larch or other conifers for it. In young forest stands, these growing young trees are often felled and cut out as waste wood.

Ideally, the course of the rods is a uniform narrowing from the foot to the tip. The lower part is thick depending on the length between 10 and 13cm. At the crossing point, the thickness should be about 4-5cm so that the opening of the shell closes optimally around the rods and the weight of the cloth does not overload the rods too much. A tepee pole set is most natural when the poles are tapering as sharply as possible and the lengths of the poles jut irregularly into the sky.

For smaller tipis, bamboo poles can also be used. They are lighter but not so robust and like to split in our latitudes. We rarely use them and at the request of our customers.

The pegs are made by hand from beech, oak or acacia wood. We use beechwood as standard. It is a reasonably priced, sustainable and weather-resistant material. The oak wood is slightly more robust than the beech and was formerly used for shipbuilding. After the beech, it is the most common deciduous tree genus and occurs in mixed forests. Acacia trees are rather rare in forests and are cultivated as ornamental woods. They belong to the hardwoods and are therefore very weather-resistant.

In the tepees, for example, young willow or hazelnut rods are well suited as shut-off needles. They are with their bark a pretty decoration to every teepee. Unfortunately, they like to weather and should therefore be replaced more often. In Europe, hazelnut shrubs are easy to find and can be carved and replaced by the Tipi owners. If you have higher demands on your needles, you can buy needles made of sturdy acacia and oak wood.
