Purchasing a tipi guarantees unforgettable memories of great moments spent with your family and friends.
Quit with boredom and monotony! A tipi is a magic place, where time stops. Even mosquitoes stay away!
People tend to call a tipi an Indian „tent”, but don't believe it. Forget about a tiny and cold place, what in fact a tent is. It is always warm in a tipi and you can start a fire there!
It is spacious enough to be occupied by 30 people at the same time.
Sounds like a real s a l o o n, doesn't it?
...you lie down in a warm and comfortable bed, you smell roasted sausages and other tasty flavors mix with the scent of cut wood. The fire burns nearby, magic shadows appear on the tipi's walls, and you can see twinkling stars in the sky through a little hole just above your head. You fall asleep remembering the glamorous time of your childhood.
"It's been 20 years since I first camped in a tipi and I cannot imagine it differently. The fire gives warmth and this special atmosphere, and I can watch the stars in the sky through open smoke flaps - what else do you need?"
Robert Piesiecki, a tipi's owner
"When I stepped into the tipi, I felt as if I was stepping into my own house. It's because of its unique atmosphere. I felt as a native Indian. It was incredible to watch the sun rays coming though the hole inside during the day, and possibility to watch glittering sky in the night."
Wojtek Jaszczur, 13 year old
Do you still think you can call the tipi a tent? In Indian language "A tipi" means "Home". It is going to be a place, where time stops for you. And where mosquitoes stay away! Have I mentioned that?
How to get rid of mosquitoes?.
Have you ever dreamt of a place, where you can hide from mosquitoes and relax at the same time? Have you dreamt of a place where the atmosphere is not stifling and a chilly wind skims your face bringing along the scent of fresh apples?
A place like this exists. As you already know, there is a fire inside a tipi. A tipi is made of natural linen, which absorbs smoke and resign from burning wood. Those are scents which mosquitoes hate.
A tipi is like a protective bar against any biting insects. They smell the smoke from faraway and simply fly in other direction. Is it a place you have dreamt of? It is only the beginning of tipis' advantages.
Winter does not necessary finish our adventure with a tipi...
You probably thought that once the winter has come, you need to fold down the tipi and that's it. Nothing more misleading!
It is winter time
that brings the most fun with a tipi!
You are getting back from skiing or sledging. Or maybe you just had a snowball fight. It's a freezing afternoon, the temperature outside falls below 20 degrees. You can either go home, or... organize unforgettable evening in a tipi! Burning fire will immediately warm up the interior and you can undress from jacket and sweater.
It is minus 20 degrees outside! Hard to believe? I remember New Year's Eve spent with my friends in a tipi.
It was minus 27 degrees outside! And wearing shirts, we roasted sausages, in a big pot we were making game stew, next to that we grilled bacon and courgettes

canceling barbecue parties because of rainy weather,
... when you have a Tipi
You probably won't believe when I say, that...
barbecue can work even in sever rainfall and thunderstorm. It is hard to believe but when it rains outside it gives even more pleasure to stay in a tipi. Why?
Imagine having a barbecue in the garden and suddenly terrible rainfall comes! You desperately try to gather all things and rush to the house wondering how to squeeze all guests inside.
Think of the times, when it's raining and you wonder, looking though the window: "How nice would it be to have a barbecue and a little get together with friends". If only you had a tipi?
Waterproof walls prevent raindrops to get inside, the fire gives light and warmth, and there is enough space to invite up to 30 people. All you need to do is go shopping and make a few phone calls. Unforgettable parties in all weather conditions? You can be sure of that.
Do you think of revitalizing your body and soul?
Stress brings you down?
A tipi will allow you to regain all the energy there is in you!
For many people, a tipi is an asylum, a place where they find peace and stillness. It's a kind of lonely desert, where time stops and sorrows disappear.

Listen, what OTHERS have to say:
"Neat and beautiful home as a gift from old, blissful times of noble Indian culture, has become my asylum. It means that dreams do come true
Since early childhood, I have always been fascinated with tribes and their way of life. I was especially fascinated with respect they showed toward nature and every creature, even if it was to become an object of hunting. Indian beliefs and habits filled with mysticism, joy, simplicity and dignity envisioned longing for the lost paradise. Since I have a tipi in my backyard, I can discover the perfection of lost paradise over and over again. This perfection is tangible.
The perfect form of this light but long lasting construction amazes with proportions. With its poles sticking out, it opens up for the magic of the universe. The universe, revealed in colors and symbols, permeate into interior through mystic fire in the middle. The sacred fire, giving Indians and us light, warmth, sense of security and finally joy that comes thanks to closeness of friend.
Smell of smoke, comfortable beddings and lack of disturbing mosquitoes allow both children and adults to fall asleep easily. No one would even think of getting back to brick house, even when it rained.
