Sometimes you have to repair your tent. Some things you can manage yourself, others you need help to do. Here are some tips from Tentipi.

Spares

Spare parts such as stakes and pegs, central poles or just about anything else are available to buy individually as a replacement. Please don’t hesitate to contact Customer Service info@tentipi.com or your retailer if you can’t find what you need.

Repair light fabrics using Silnet silicon. Apply a little glue both from the outside and inside so that the hole or tear is covered. Silnet also seals seams when the entire tent does not need to be re-impregnated, which is usually not necessary.

Repair a damage using a patch

Patching small holes or minor rips in the cotton/polyester fabric using Fabric adhesive and a patch – without you even having to take down the Nordic tipi.

Repair an up to 200 mm damage (in any direction) using a patch. There are repair patches included in the tent’s packing bag when buying an Adventure Nordic tipi.

Cut a patch in the fabric matching the tent fabric. Round off the corners. Mark the size of the patch on the inside of the tent fabric. Take glue on the tent fabric and on the patch and spread it out all over the surface. Let the glue dry so that it is non-stick and then place the patch on the tent fabric and press it. Spread the glue in the joints so that the patch fits snugly against the tent fabric.

Here you will find your serial number

serienummer

In order for you to get the right price and for us to be sure that we have the right material for the right tent, we will ask for the serial number. Over the years, the location of the serial number has changed. On today's Nordic tipis, it is both on a label on the compression bag and on a label inside the tent, on the left side of the door seen from the inside, after the bottom edge. The same place inside the tent also applies to the older models Nibba and Vagge. On the back of the logo triangle at the door you will find the serial number of a ToppJakt, Arran and Varrie. On the older models, the serial number may be handwritten.

Christian Reinwarth and Judith Senger live near Düsseldorf in Germany. They visited Tentipi, Sunne, a Friday in July to get a tent repaired, to buy a floor and to expand their tent range with an Olivin in cotton/polyester. That’s their fifth Tentipi tent and in an interview the couple told how it comes they are so fond of Nordic tipis from Tentipi. They gave some advice for camping as well.

The scents of nature always smell good, right? Well, that's a truth with exaggeration. There are such amounts of different smells, and they are experienced in different ways due to experiences, memories and circumstances that you do not always know. The sense of smell is more or less developed and this makes it difficult to know what others feel about scents. How much the sensory cells are exposed to a certain smell also determines how you feel about it. The olfactory cells can be tired by an intense scent and if another comes close, it feels much stronger. Now there is research that shows that you can feel well about different smells and researchers have managed to find out how some everyday scents develop.

Give yourself a day

Give yourself a time, a place, give yourself peace with opportunities to be right here and now. A quiet day when you are at the centre of your care in the meadow, in the woods, on the mountain top, on the hills, on the beach wherever you get the rest you need.
