We first fell in love with tipis, (or teepees) when we stayed in one in an amazingly remote location in Wales. We liked it so much that we went back and got engaged in it. There is something magical about the space inside a tipi – it is one of the few canvas spaces where you can sit around an open fire, the shape makes it a comforting place to be, and everyone comments how calm a place it is. For all these reasons, we yearned to have a tipi of our own, as a place to retreat, to have meetings, and for friends to stay, and when the opportunity came up to buy ‘our’ tipi from our friends in Wales, we couldn’t resist.
