The Tipi Liner
The tipi liner is an interior cloth wall that insulates and controls airflow in the tipi. A tipi cover alone provides sufficient mild weather shelter but in cool or hot weather a liner is essential. A properly pitched tipi cover is staked a few inches off the ground. The liner hangs from the inside of the poles and extends onto the ground, sealing the bottom of the lodge. Cool outside air is drawn under the cover and channels up through the smoke flaps, taking the smoke out with it. The liner also helps prevent condensation and is sometimes called a “dew cloth”. The tipi liner may be painted before it is hung. Liner details include:
Standard and Extended Ozan
The ozan is an interior drop ceiling or inside rain cover that forms a canopy over the back third of the tipi behind the fire. It holds in heat and shelters the living area below. We also offer an extended ozan for superior rain protection which reaches all the way across the tipi using a pulley system. The ozan is constructed of flame resistant, 13 ounce per square yard Sunforger material. This 100% cotton army duck, marine boatshrunk fabric is water and mildew repellent.
The floor cover, made of heavy-duty, 10 ounce tarp grade duck, is flame resistant and more mildew resistant than other materials you might use for a floor. Floor covers make it it easy to sweep out your tipi. Tan in color.
Steel stakes are a valuable upgrade if you will be pitching your tipi on rocky ground.
Pitch your tipi on top of a deck with the hardware included in our deck kit. L brackets to attach the tipi poles to the deck and eyebolts to attach the tipi cover to the deck.
