Recapturing the joy of childhood dreams in teepees

Winner of the Australian Craft Award 2013 (Kids - Toys) with the secret hideaway teepee range!

It all began with a teepee I made for my daughter, even at one she loved to play under a sheet draped over the dining room chairs and which occupied the whole living room. While I appreciated her enjoyment of the activity I was less keen on having to climb over the furniture (or through the tent) to get to the kitchen and even less enthusiastic about her bumping her small head on concealed chair legs. Something had to change and I had a sneaking suspicion that it would be the circumstances and not her interests.

Success, she LOVES her teepee and now has three in our small apartment!

That first teepee was enough for me to realise that this was what I wanted to do (husband now claiming it was his idea and fully on board the teepee bandwagon) around trips to the park, creative play time, swimming lessons and play dates.

My daughter, at three told me that she wants to make me a teepee and I am looking forward to what she creates. Now at four she continues to be my inspiration and enjoys advising me on fabric selection, design and critique.

Frequently asked questions

International Shipping (outside Australia)

A telephone number will be required in order to post your order as this is a requirement of the Australian postal service. Please provide your phone number in the notes to seller.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Teepees (excluding pet teepee) ship in dual purpose packaging. I use either:
- a standard sized pillowcase for storage and it doubles as a pillow cover for a pillow you may decide to have inside the teepee for lazy afternoons of reading
- a handmade bag for storage of the teepee or something else while the teepee is setup

Custom and personalised orders

Let me know what you want. The decorations can be tailored to your needs. Namer personalisation? Choose your fabric from my range? Want more windows? Curtain? Something designed for you?


The poles are not included in my listings as they cannot be shipped by standard methods.

When you make your purchase I will advise the dimensions and they can be obtained as a standard size from your local hardware store (in Australia at least).

Overseas buyers please make sure you can acquire the poles before purchase.

Ready to ship or Rush orders

See Ready to Ship section for teepees available for immediate postage. If none of these are quite what you want please convo me so we can assess my capacity for a rush order.
