M/s CANVAS EMPORIUM This business located in the country of India seems to take pride in quality workmanship, if what they say on their website is true. Their website links are all messed up, so be patient.
►We are the authentic traditional Indian canvas Tipi, Tepee makers based in India. A few Of our Tipi details are listed below: We offer Tipi(s) that are versatile, lightweight and user-friendly. You can use our Tipi's for guest accommodation, a garden retreat, a children's camp or a weekend get away. The Tipi is also perfect for camping holidays and festivals. Our Tipis are easy to erect because we use lightweight bamboo poles. We have lots of hands on experience in making Tipis and we ship worldwide. We are also making Tipis for some established brands in USA, UK plus some other European countries for last few years. Our Tipi canvas is made of heavy duty 15 ounce 100% Cotton, rot and water proof to maintain the traditional look and feel as well as to fight with any type of weather and maintain its durability. The specialty of our Tipis is that most of the stitching is done by hand by skilled workers who are specially trained in making Tipis. We don't manufacture Tipis in bulk. Rather, every Tipi made is given personal care to maximize customer satisfaction. We follow the basic Sioux pattern and procedure as mentioned in the famous Laubins book "The Indian Tipi" with some custom modifications which we have developed on our own from our experience and the valuable feedback of our customers. Colored Tipis are also available. Our Tipis can Be easily painted to suit your own taste and creativity. Tipi Liners are also available in 10 OZ natural A grade cotton Duck. We also have Tipis and Tipi Liners in Fire Retardant + Mildew Resistant + Water Repellent cotton canvas as per British standards. We make Tipis ranging from size 9ft to 33ft in diameter. Matching liners, rain catchers and ground sheets are also available.◄
THE TIPI Here is an example of a homemade Tepee actually made from scratch in a living room by the owner. This blog has a link to another website (here) with some more information about this Teepee making project. Nice pictures also.
►So— I want to start first by explaining that my husband actually sewed this Tipi, not me. But, I felt I needed to show it off for him and also explain that this Tipi is the whole reason I started sewing! About ten months ago, he showed up with an old sewing machine and tons of canvas drop cloths and told me that he was going to make a real Tipi (said it had been his dream since he was little). I had told him before that I learned to sew when I was really young, so we sat down together and learned how to use the machine. It all came back to me! I decided to try a project myself and haven't put down the fabric since! He spent several months sewing (burned out the old sewing machine—got a new one) and we did lots of research about sewing as well. I was a consultant as well as the help when it came measuring the 30+ feet of canvas. The smoke flaps are working, so there could feasibly be a fire in the middle inside and we think it will sleep about 6-8 people. We haven't taken it camping yet. He just finished the liner also. He split two by fours in half and used a draw knife to make the poles. They are two 10ft pieces connected by a piece of PVC pipe. There are 17 poles in all and the diameter of the Tipi is 16 foot. It was the cause of many a headache since it was being sewn in my living room for ten months, but I am so impressed with the finished product—and so proud of him for actually doing it!◄

We view the Indian Tipi as an alternative form of shelter that is a naturally practical way to live or camp in harmony with the elements. Tipis represent the essence of environmentally friendly living. Tipis create an elegant, portable, home away from home, whether it is used as a summer camp, a guest lodge or a weekend getaway.

HAU KOLA TIPI
Nice website. This business is based in Poland. Good looking product. The owner is very enthusiastic about Tipi living.
►My name is Chris Kolb and I have belonged to The Polish Movement of Indians' Friends since 11 years now. The material culture of American Indians has become my passion both in theory and practice. The replicas of Indian outfits, that I make, have been widely acknowledged and appreciated.
I belong to the Fox Association, which was founded 6 years ago. The aim of this Association is to popularize the culture of Crow tribe. Tipi (Teepee, Tepee) is an aspect of Indian culture, which has very unique and special meaning for me. Truly, it is my second home, where I try to be as often as possible. I have been gathering literature, which tackles this issue. I also try to get some experience talking to the Tipi owners as often as I get a chance. We have been selling Tipis for 12 years. Throughout those years I have gained a lot of experience and general know-how (knowledge) in using Tipi, what makes my tents of really high quality. Purchasing a Tipi guarantees unforgettable memories of great moments spent with your family and friends, an impression on neighbors and happiness in your children's eyes . . . Quit with boredom and monotony! A Tipi is a magic place, where time stops. Even mosquitoes stay away! We use excellent quality, strong French canvas LATIM™ weight 430gr/m2 waterproof and rot proof impregnated and also fireproof M2 french classification with certificate by official laboratory. We use high quality Coats threads and special heavy sewing machines as well. That's why we can offer 2 year guarantee for handcraft and 3 years guarantee for the fabrics.◄
GRIMES TIPI LIVING According to this article this man has been living in his Tipi for many years. UPDATE: (22 Jan 2013) This link has been removed or something has happened and no longer exists. I am leaving this listing up for future reference or storage.
►Somebody whose teaser rate mortgage has just had an aneurysm might want to look at the example of David Grimes, who has lived full-time in a Tipi for 35 years. Grimes, 58, lives in a Dakota-style white canvas Tipi, 20-feet in diameter, on one of the ridges along the Mendocino coast. He's not broke; he works almost every day as a finish carpenter and has plenty of jobs. He does pay rent, $200 a month, to the owner of the 40 acres where his Tipi is perched on a hillside. But worries about housing pretty much have passed him by. An underwater mortgage, catastrophic balloon payments, foreclosure and eviction . . . Aren't issues for him. Instead of handing large amounts of money to a landlord or bank in exchange for a place to live, Grimes spends a lot of time pursuing his own interests: surfing, non-lethal bow hunting (he's a vegetarian who uses blunted rubber-tipped arrows), charity work in Mexico, woodworking, and ukulele plunking. His Tipi has most of the comforts. The solar panels and the golf cart batteries juice up the 12-volt lights and stereo. He has the propane hot water heater for the morning hot shower (al fresco). A big wood burning stove. A water tank filled by a convenient spring. And a Blackberry.◄

►The American Plain Indian culture, specifically that of the Sioux, is perhaps the most underrated civilization in history. An extremely sophisticated, nomadic people, their lifestyle demanded a practical, comfortable, eco friendly and mobile living space - the Tipi (pronounced Teepee). With a simplicity of design that technology cannot improve, the versatile Tipi can be anything from a child's plaything to fully fledged home. It forms an incredible, stable, leaning, aerodynamic cone, and has the unique ability to accommodate an open fire. The smoke flaps can be adjusted to draw air into, or out of the Tipi, so even in the most extreme weather conditions it will provide refuge with comfort and warmth. As the days grow longer and the sun rises higher, the skin (cover) can be rolled up to form a giant parasol . . . comfort throughout the year. The Tipi's magnificence goes deeper than appearance. Due to design, the floor plan of a Tipi is that of an egg. A life giving, organic shape widely believed to have positive spiritual properties. There are in fact entire Tipi communities because of this, and the particular closeness to nature that one can achieve. The Tipi's shape is known to encourage imaginative play in children, and what child wouldn't be thrilled with their own versatile garden hideaway.◄
It appears to me Tipis are a sideline business for these folks located in the United Kingdom. However, their Tipi creations look quite nice.
►At Grays Marquees we have been manufacturing natural canvas products for over 70 years and now we have channeled our marquee-manufacturing skills into building the North American Indian Tipi. We make all our Tipis ourselves from our base on the Isle of Wight. Our Tipis are produced from the best 12oz natural cotton canvas which has been treated to combat the problems of rot. Water resistant and flame retardant, it is the same material we use for our marquee manufacture and has stood the test of hard commercial use for many years. A fire certificate will be issued with every Tipi manufactured making it available for use in the commercial hire business. Our Tipis are 18ft diameter with 24ft poles. The design of the Tipi has been well established over many years and we have taken this basic design and added our own well proven marquee construction methods to increase the life of the Tipi and to the ease the erection and striking procedure.◄

►My Grandmother persuaded me to start making Tipis. She gave me the pattern and said "With every new Tipi please say a little prayer asking to bless everyone that enters this lodge, if you don't feel good while you're making one, wait until you feel better to finish it. And always remember this very important thing: Whatever it is you put into making a new lodge will come back to you three-fold". I knew she was gifting me with something very close to her heart! We are happy to share our world with all of you. Tipis are great for Schools, Day Care, Outings, Gatherings, Talking circles, Back Yards, Camp outs, Powwows, Teaching aids, Weddings, Extra guest rooms, Temporary or Permanent housing, Movie rooms, Hunting, BBQ and serving areas, Parties, Play houses and much more. Some friends of mine have even given birth to a child in Tipis I made for them. My son and I are available for classes, or lessons, teaching traditional Tipi set up. Rates vary depending on your location and scheduled needs. Please contact us for more information. Why i make a better Tipi: Nylon straps are used instead of cotton. All Seams are DOUBLE LOCK STITCHED with 100% Acrylic thread unlike most other Tipis that are chain stitched with cotton or nylon and pull out very easily, just like the top of a potato sack. My Standard Tipis are made from 12 oz. single fill industrial grade Natural Cotton Duck Fabric. In addition my Tipis are reinforced at all stress points to withstand years of use in any weather condition. Please check my Q & A section for self help on water proofing, fire retarding and other helpful information including setting up your Tipi and how to find poles.◄
