Fabric Cover

Today, our tipi covers are fabricated from the highest quality 100% cotton, compact yarn tightly woven into a very fine 100 % Cotton Duck with up to 136 pound web. Marine Canvas that has a very long outdoor life expectancy.

This odourless, preshrunk, water repellent Marine Canvas is fire retardant, and complies with the fire codes NFPA 701, CAN/ULC-S109 AND CPAI-84. It is also mildew and rot resistant, and is factory treated for resistance to UV Rays.


We harvest and hand-peel the traditional full length lodgepole pine poles. A Mukwa tipi comes with poles long enough to create the majestic Eagle’s Nest above the apex. Shorter travelling poles may be requested as an option.


We also sell the Anishinabe Draft Skirt, winter liners, customized carpets, and subfloors adapted to fit our teepees. Inquire about our custom carrier racks for cars, vans and trucks that are ideal for the nomadic use of a large tipi or multiple tipis.


The quality, price, and value of our tipi have no equivalent in the World which make it ideal for commercial/public use.
