TUE DRESS (LINING)
The basic part of the tepee is the lining. A cloth strip that is attached to the poles around the tent from the inside and consists of three equal parts. It fulfills several functions. First and foremost, it enables the extraction of smoke and the ventilation of the tepee, thus creating a smoke-free room and a pleasant climate. The air flows between the lining and the cover and protects the inside of the tent from rainwater. The lining also prevents water condensation on the inside and therefore remains nice and dry. It is therefore sometimes called "Taukleid". The air between the lining and the cover serves as insulation, which warms the tepee in the winter and cools in the summer.
The living comfort can still be increased with an Ozan Solo in the tipi for lining. The Ozan Solo is a half fabric sky, which additionally protects the living area behind the fire in heavy rain or snowfall. It is mounted slightly diagonally at the height of approx. 3m.
We recommend the Ozan Solo, regardless of the weather, often staying in the tepee. In addition to its main task, it can also serve as a room divider by lowering the front part in front of the warehouse.
There is also the closed Ozan, which covers the entire interior completely. The heat storage is thereby maximally increased, however, the closed Ozan has only a small hole for the smoke outlet and is therefore only to be recommended for professionals. Visually, of course, the high sense of space of the tepee is lost. Is therefore only suitable for extreme applications!
The Indians had different types of door flaps. Some were painted, embroidered with beads or porcupine bristles. In other tepees, only an old blanket hung down, separated by a crossbar above the entrance. Often bear or buffalo fur served as a door lock. Our doors are fixed with two transverse slats in the designated tunnels.
The long poles, which so proudly rise into the sky with a tepee, give the tipi that certain something. On request we sell beautiful straight hand peeled tip rods in different sizes up to a length of 10m.
The superimposed tent cover is closed with the closure needles. The number of needles depends on the tip size and the corresponding joints. The needles are usually made of willow or hazelnut rods and are easy to produce if necessary.
The wooden pegs are needed for fixing the yurt shell in a natural floor. We offer beech, acacia and oak herring. The acacia and oak herring are more resistant and therefore better suited for year-round use.
ROPES & CUTS
Ropes and cords can be ordered from us at any time from stock. We carry different strengths in 20m length and fine lines directly from the roll.
A wooden floor is a luxurious way to make a teepee more comfortable. We use this floor especially for customers who have a high demand on their tipi and appreciate the resulting comfort. In the middle it is possible to remove a wooden plate to place a fire bowl or something similar.
On request, we will gladly procure replacement material for your tent or order a custom-made product. Please contact us if you have not found what you are looking for on our site yet.
