Quality Materials

yurt materials specially selected for utility and quality


To make the best quality yurts we require the best materials.  Over the years we have established excellent relationships with our suppliers and have some of our materials specially made for us.
 

Wood

Chestnut poles yurt workshop yurtOur frames are normally made from renewable chestnut - the wood we consider to be the best choice for the job. We source this wood in Northern Spain, from mountain forest farms where the trees have been grown for hundreds of years.

oak crownThe best material for our solid crowns is oak; with ultra-high resistance to the elements, it provides a secure foundation for a long last yurt frame.

Canvas

Weatherproof canvasOne of the most important aspects of a yurt is the canvas cover - this is what keeps the yurt dry and allows moisture out (breathing).  We have our canvas specially made to order.  We have the canvas proofed to a very high standard to ensure the canvas will not leak whatever the climate.  We go the extra mile with proofing so you can relax knowing you have the best-proofed canvas available.
 
We use 400g/m2 cotton/polyester especially proofed to our exacting standards.

My Yurt Escape


I have recently moved into a Yurt. Ever since going on my first meditation retreats, I  have longed for somewhere quite, somewhere still, to escape to, to be in nature close to the teachings. I am so very lucky that I did not have to wait all that long, only four or so years.

Kathy from Barcelona, Spain, 2005:

..thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you - The yurt looks amazing and is beautifully made, "maker of fine yurts" is certainly an appropriate title. It is beautiful and warm, even in sub zero temperatures.
