Liner (inner tent)

A complete set of liner is consisting of a bottom part (lining) and a top part (ozan).

    Air circulation

    The inflow of air at the bottom causes a circulation between the outer and inner tent layer and the smoke of a fire is flowing up and outwards of the opening.

    The bottom part of the liner (inner tent) has a height of two meters and keeps off lateral wind and reduces humidity (dew) at night, which is why we call it Taukleid in german (literal translation: dew gown).

    PVC Strip

    A strip of PVC at the bottom is preventing the fabric to rot.

    The rubber rings are for fixing and tensing the lining to the ground with stakes. With equal margins to the outside, the interior gains in size.

    It was conceived to stay dry in the tepee in the humid climatic conditions of Central Europe.

    The number of satisfied tipi ozan owners confirms it's usefulness.

    Hanging the ozan

    The ozan is being pulled up by a rope which is preinstalled at buildup. Then a thinner cord or rope is fixed from pole to pole at a height of around 2m to unfold and stretch out the ozan.

    Hanging the lining

    Then the lining is laced to the ozan and at the end it is fixed to the ground with stakes.

The liner is a cone-shaped inner tent reaching from the ground to the top open towards the entrance, to let smoke out (if there is fire), but it can also be closed completely. It protects against dripping, dampness (from dew) and heat, and preserves the heat of fire. The fabric parts dry by the permanent air movement after the last raindrops. It is of course possible to buy a tipi an ozan or lining, or only install one of each parts of the liner.
