About the Tents

Canvas has been used in different forms for around 3500 years for everything from birchbark canoes to Picasso’s oil paintings.

We use modern canvas, which is flame-retardant and made from a blend of cotton and synthetic fiber. This makes it the perfect material for our tipi tents, as it is both practical and nice to look at.


Wood may seem a bit “low tech” to some. You would be surprised how strong and light the timber is that we use to erect the tipi tents.

The wood used for our poles is not picked at random; it’s carefully selected from late-maturing, de-barked spruce. Some of the chosen trees are up to 150 years old. This selection process ensures the poles are extremely strong and long lasting.
