"No dwelling in all the world stirs the imagination like the teepee. It is without a doubt one of the most picturesque of all shelters and one of the most practical movable dwellings ever invented"

Reginald and Gladys Laubin

tepee |'tēˌpē| (also teepee or tipi)
noun
a portable conical tent made of skins, cloth, or canvas on a frame of poles, used by American Indians of the Plains and Great Lakes regions.
ORIGIN mid 18th cent.: from Sioux tīpī 'dwelling'.

Our Teepees

Conical tent known as Lavvu, Goahti, kåta, or the most common Teepee have been used by several nomadic tribes throughout the world because it's resilience to the elements and is one of the most easy to move structures. The teepee design that we use is similar to what would have be found throughout North America.

Our teepee covers are made with a  durable 10.6 oz fire, mould, mildew and water resistant canvas with triple stitched seams. The canvas allows natural light in during the day and a glowing effect when a fire is burning at night. The cover wraps around a natural timber frame made up of poles that have been harvested, debarked and sanded by hand. This method leaves very little carbon footprint.

The teepees portability, simple set up and takedown allows clients to create a variety of different atmospheres from simple backyard gatherings, sleepovers,  birthdays and reunions to intimate weddings. Whether it be urban or remote we will bring the teepee to you. All the rental teepees are well maintained to insure that they are up to par with the beauty of your event, party or wedding.

My Story

Having traveled off and on for ten years living in vans, hostels, and many different types of tents from teepees to bell tents I have always been interested in the nomadic way of life. Through these experiences I have always wondered how I could bring this feeling to others. I believe with my tent rental options I can bring the feeling of a nomadic lifestyle to your door step.

Nomadic Canvas was created to give people an option that is different from your everyday tent rental. We believe when planning your event it is not only important for everything to be functional but it as also important for your event to be one of a kind. With our teepees you can make all this possible, giving you and your guests a most memorable time while keeping it simple and easy.
