Combining traditional scandinavian design and modern techniques, our tipis (also known as Teepees, Katas or Giant Hats) will provide a stunning setting for your celebrations. Their intrinsically strong and beautiful structure – natural timber poles, earthy canvas tones and soaring 6.8m ceilings at the peak – create a real “WOW” factor.
Built to Withstand the Elements
Built to withstand the elements our genuine Nordic event tipis are tried and tested structures that have been used in the events industry world-wide for over 25+ years.
Our Nordic tipi canvas is strong and resistant to mould and fading and is totally waterproof. This ensures that our tipis always look amazing and that you will stay dry!
Our tipi poles are harvested from a specific species of Spruce that grows in a narrow band of latitudes of the far north of Scandinavia. This timber grows very slowly and it is this slow growth that gives the timber its strength and special properties. Additionally, the timber has been subjected to sophisticated laboratory tests – testing to destruction to determine its strength and flexibility. These figures are a crucial input into the 750 pages of structural calculations that have been carried out by structural engineers to determine the safe wind loadings in which our tipis can be used.
Unlike with many handmade, artisan marquees, light weight modern tents or cheaper copy-cat Nordic tipis that have just appeared on the rental market you can be confident that our genuine tipis will provide you and your guests with the safest and strongest protection from the elements when you need it most!
Not only do our tipis look stunning, but they are incredibly flexible too! Pitched on their own with their sides down they take the form of a conventional tipi – warm, cosy and intimate. Pitched with their sides up and resembling a giant witches hat, they can be joined together in a variety of configurations to create a single large space. This not only increases the covered floor area, but it also allows you to make the most of a beautiful view or cooling breeze. Whether you are holding an intimate soiree, a fairy-tale wedding, or a corporate event for 400+ there is a configuration that will work perfectly for you!
