Tipi Ventilation

The natural ventilation in a well designed Tipi is one of the many reasons it makes such a successful living space.

When the fire is lit inside a tipi, the hot air will always rise and exhuast the smoke out of the opening at the top. This is aided by the draught caused by the air flow in-between the inner liner and the outer cover.

Depending on the wind direction, the smoke flaps are placed so as to help direct the internal airflow allowing the occupants a smoke free, well ventilated and cosy interior.
