How to Buy or Rent a Tipi

Be Like Prince William and Kate Middleton and Try Out a Tipi With These 6 Tips!

While on their whirlwind tour of Canada, Prince William and Kate Middleton spent time in a tipi at Blachford Lake, Canada. Tipis are conical tents that were originally made of animal skins and used by Native Americans on the Great Plains. Today, they're most often made from canvas and can be found for sale at specialty shops as well as modern retailers like Design Within Reach.

Want to explore one for yourself? Here are a few options.

  1. Stay at a campground or "glamping" site that provides tipis and yurts, like Sussex Tipi Holidays in the UK.
  2. Look for a tipi on eBay. This one is less than $250 and would be a great spot for guests to hang out in at backyard Summer parties.
  3. Buy a durable and high-quality tipi from Colorado Yurt Company. Their goods are proven to be tough and reliable and are perfect for the serious investor.
  4. Go majorly modern with the Gandia Blasco Tipi (pictured to the right). With an anodized aluminum frame and white nautical yacht fabric shade, this tipi features a streamlined, pared-down shape that's gorgeous (and expensive, at just under $12,000).
  5. Get a cute indoor tipi for your kiddo. I love the modern look of the tipis offered by Etsy seller NickMaxMama. This Abstract Heart Tipi ($145) is particularly divine.
  6. Add floral swagger to your festival camp site or backyard with the Cath Kidston Cowboy Teepee Tent ($120). It's designed to sleep three people and features a fun red flag.
