We are proud to be the only supplier in Devon
providing unique ‘white’ canvas tipis
for tipi weddings and tipi events.
ORIGINAL AND BEST
Tentipi Nordic tipis are based upon the traditional design principles of the Sami kata. The Sami people are nomadic reindeer herders in North Scandinavia and designed the kata to be an easily mobile home, providing warmth and protecting them from the harsh, arctic winds.
Tentipi was founded by Bengt Grahn. After an exhilarating canoeing trip in Lapland he found himself in unhospitable conditions trying to build a shelter in which he could prepare food and get warm and dry. As he battled against the elements, he thought on the ingenuity of the Sami people and was inspired to use their traditional design to make the best tent in the world for camping expeditions and exciting events.
Since the first tipi in 1989, Bengt has continuously been refining, adapting, innovating and learning. 30 years of innovation and development has led the gradual improvement and enhancement of the tipi design and engineering, ensuring Tentipi tipis are at the forefront of temporary event structures, offering unrivalled strength, durability and safety whilst retaining their original aesthetic beauty.

UNIQUE IVORY WHITE CANVAS
Our tipis are unique. We are proud to be the only tipi hire company in Devon supplying beautiful ivory white tipis. The light-coloured canvas allows more natural light inside than the standard tan-coloured tipis. Their neutral colour also means that they offer more flexibility when it comes to colour schemes and styling. Our beautiful tipis are striking against any landscape yet the natural elements of wood and canvas always complement their surroundings. Their gargantuan size is misleading. When you step inside the tipi, their conical shape ergonomically wraps around you, creating a feeling of cosy security and comfort. This also creates an intimacy at even the largest events.
SIZE IS EVERYTHING
Each of our Stratus Tipis measure up to 13m in diameter. Up to 80 standing guests can be safely and comfortably accommodated inside one tipi with the sides closed. Up to 72 guests can be seated inside one tipi on 9 trestle tables.
The tipis can also be linked together side by side in a double or triple tipi formation in a straight line, an arc or a triangle.
Two linked tipis can accommodate up to 160 standing guests or up to 144 seated guests.
Three linked tipis can accommodate up to 240 standing guests or up to 216 seated guests.
For larger events, please do get in touch.
The gigantic size of our tipis is down to the extraordinarily long poles. At over 8 metres long, they are just small enough to fit onto the largest trailer.
To find wood that is so long, straight, light, flexible and strong requires travelling into the depths of the forests in northern Scandinavia where the darkness and cold ensures an extremely slow annual growth rate. Our poles come from trees that are over 100 years old. The trees are selected and felled by hand before being crafted into poles for our tipis.
We can also supply power, indoor and outdoor lighting, heating, furniture, flooring, outdoor fire pits and a catering tent to complete your tipi wedding or tipi event.
For everything else, we can help point you in the right direction and recommend caterers to cook up a feast, florists to enhance our beautiful tipis, games and entertainment to help get the party started, cheerful barmen to mix your favourite cocktails, props and table décor to add the wow factor, stationary to intrigue your guests or outfitters to ensure you are dressed to impress.
