In the winter 2009 the customer came to our show and then bought a 6m tepee and 2 backrests. The customer owns a large piece of land in Italy near Lake Orta, where he wanted to set up a tepee for private purposes. We took over the transport of the rods to Italy. However, at Italian customs, they did not let us cross the border! The provisions of the excess length were not like in Switzerland and the bars had to be shortened unfortunately by a full meter. After that we could continue without problems. After the construction we stayed there for a few days and enjoyed it very much in this beautiful place to stay a bit.
After 6 years of permanent use without care and with a location in the middle of the forest, the shell was due! The fabric had turned gray and brittle. The pegs and needles were all rotten and had to be replaced as well.
For a permanent outdoor use, depending on the location, one Cleaning and care the case after at least 2 years necessary. The pegs and needles should also be checked regularly and replaced if necessary.
The customer ordered a new one from us Tencate teepee cover and we take the opportunity for a little weekend trip to Italy.
In one afternoon we completely dismantled the old tepee with the new cover. The poles were still in very good condition and could be used again for the construction. We stayed overnight and a cozy working fire ended in a tepee.
