The list of tipis
makers is an on going and changing page. If you know of others, please
send the page or address. Most of the makers are located in the United
States with a few in Australia, Canada, England, Switzerland, South Africa
and Scotland. This list is for your convenience and we are not
responsible for any problems that may occur between a tipi buyer and
seller. This list is not by any particular order, quality or price.
Many of these makers I know personally or over the phone in LONG
conversations. Others I have not seen or know of any examples of their
products except by their adds. My recommendation is to call, write or
visit the tipi maker of your choice. And the best thing, ask other
tipi owners what they like or
dislike about their lodges.

1991. Sizes 14', 15', 16', 17', 18'. One piece fitted lining, hand sewn
lacing pin holes, rain tight door attachment, well reinforced smoke flaps,
reinforcements at key points, and other features make this a well designed
tipi. I use patterns similar to Linda Holley's,

by offering a quality tipi.
