Native American Tipis

 

FAM WEST Tipis are sewn following the example of the famous Sioux tipis and are always delivered with an inner lining. By request, other types can be made (Cheyenne, Crow, Blackfoot).

We offer the following sizes:
ø3m; ø4m; ø5m; ø5,5m;
ø6m; ø7m; ø8m; ø9m

 

Because a correctly constructed tipi has an oval or egg-shaped ground shape, the length is longer and the width is narrower than the actual circumference of the tent. The circumference is also about the height of the cross-point of the poles.

 

   

FAM WEST Tipis are made from pure cotton. The waterproofed and mould-treated cloth is available in three weights: standard 300 gr/m² or heavy cloth 360 gr/m² or mixed weave 420 gr/m². Colored cloth is only available in 300 gr/m².
