Fabrics


The lifetime of teepees depend on the quality and handling of the selection of the appropriate fabric- the lighter fabric for seasonal use and the more resistant fabric for year-round use.

You can choose a different fabric for the teepee and another for the lining.

Fabric weight

Fabric weight means how many grams does it weight per square meter (g/1 m2)


The fabric weight is determined by their production, the number of threads and the density of the threads. This also has an impact on the abrasion resistance of the fabric during its use and also on the so-called “water column” which its value provides information about the water-tightness of the fabric, which is gradually damaged by friction. Moisture, snow and high temperature deviations have the greatest influence on the damage of the fabric structure, thus it accelerates the reduction of their durability.

Mostly, the thicker the material, the stronger and more durable the tent. Decisive, however, are the composition of the fabric and the density of the warp and weft yarns used in production. Every manufacturer has different standards.

Composition, characteristics and colour of the fabrics


No. 1 and No. 2
The 100% cotton fabrics are produced in unbleached (natural white), hydrophobic (water-repellent) and fungicidal (mildew) treatments. These fabrics are particularly suitable for the tents, which are often built and dismantled. They are easy and fast to transport. They are made in the Czech Republic and often offered by manufacturers.

No. 3
The fabrics with 50% cotton and 50% polyester composition are good value for money. The poly-cotton is a hybrid between artificial polyester and cotton. It is a blend of cotton and polyester threads. Because of this combination, this fabric is more resistant to mold than the fabric made entirely of cotton. The polyester also decreases the risk of causing large cracks. This fabric is made in the Czech Republic and often offered by manufacturers.

No. 4
The 100% polyester fabric has a water-repellent (W / R) finish on the outside. These fabrics have no natural appearance, but are characterized not only by high weather resistance but also by high resistance to sunlight. They are durable, fast-drying and strong fabrics, one of the best properties being resistance to moisture and mildew. You do not have to worry about them. We use these tissues successfully for several years. They are not often offered by manufacturers. We import them.

No. 6
The most durable fabric with extended three-year warranty is modern, elastic blended fabric with appearance of a natural substance. This fabric has a long life, is flame retardant and is resistant to the worst weather, heavy rain, snow, frost and heat. It also has the hydrophobic and fungicidal treatment. It meets the latest European standards. This fabric is made in white and sand color. We recommend this material to customers with high demands. It’s about an ideal material for year-round use. This fabric is not often offered by manufacturers. We import it.
