Rats Ate My Tipi!

After a season of serious ill health, I was unable to put away a tipi I had taken down.  Laid on the barn floor, the tipi become home to a rat or two, inside the folds of the tipi, chewing a few holes in the lovely cotton cream canvas.

Spring time sunshine, a couple of girlfriends, some cotton patches and beeswax coated cotton thread, we attempted to repair the tipi naturally.  I didn't fancy stick on pvc and glue patches as our ethos here is 100% natural.

In this short video we show you how we manage to repair several holes in a canvas tent.
