The Cheyenne Lodges are made according to Laubin pattern which we feel is the most authentic. They are made of natural cotton duck for authenticity, as this would be the same material available to the mountain man and the Indian in the 1800 to 1840 period. Army duck, sunforger and flame resistant material are not authentic, but they are available. All seams are double sewn. Edges are hemmed unless selvage edge is used. Bottom edge is hemmed to keep from fraying. Lacing pin holes are button stitched by hand and no grommets are used. Stake loops are used on some Tipis of modern manufacture, but we feel this is not authentic. Instructions are included for attaching the proper way.
10 oz. Sunforger – Marine shrunk is a 100% cotton army duck with a very tight weave. Off white color. Highly resistant to water, mildew, fungi, and industrial pollution. A patented treatment used for boat and snowmobile covers. Designed for year round outdoor use. Actual weight is over 12 oz. per square yard. Recommended for all areas, especially east of the Mississippi, due to industrial wasters and high humidity.. Size of a Tipi is the measurement of the base - not the measurement of the height.
Includes cover and door, 72” liner or cover, pole layout (diagram), type and number of pegs and lacing pins and size of rope to be used. Poles, rope, pegs, or lacing pins sold separately.
