“Tom made the process of buying the tipis and turning our dream into a reality so easy that Nick and I cannot thank him enough for his initial support during the purchasing stage, for his support when we first started doing the events.Martha & NickJava Tipi
We now have a thriving Tipi business alongside our event management and mobile bars allowing us to have that ‘moveable venue’ that we dreamed of having.
The best investment we have made to date and with THE best supplier.
Nick and I can’t thank you enough for all your help, advice and support and your continued advice and support is exemplary.
Anyone who is considering venturing into the tipi business, don’t hesitate, do it now, and do it with these guys.”

“'We use Kata Tipi as our sole Tipi supplier for three reasons:Cameron MizenRaw Tipis
Sustainability - materials sourced in the UK, using sustainable forests and British made.
Design - There are two event sized tipis designed to seamlessly integrate with each other together. The designs encompass top quality finishes, flexibility and solutions that save time on set up, take down and maintenance. All of our customers comment on the quality of the kit we provide. We have even had 4 venues start using our Kata tipis over their existing tipi companies based purely on the superior quality offered by our tents.
The team - are brilliant. Matt, in particular, ran a Tipi rental business for a number of years and not only has he brought that experience into the design of the current range but also he shares top notch advice on how to operate the business efficiently. Matt has shared, literally, dozens of ideas and we have adopted many of them with great success.”
“Since we first worked with Kata 2 years ago, the team have been flexible and supportive in supporting us. They have helped us with finding solutions for clients that were both practical and cost effective. I would also point out that we have been impressed with the quality of the equipment so much so that we have ordered more replacement items from Kata as our other kit from another supplier was retired from our stock.”AndrewThe Unique Tent Company
”I am a new customer to Kata Tipis but I feel very much like I will remain one for the lifespan of my new tipi business. Beginning any new venture feels scary at times, but with Kata - I haven't just made a product purchase; I've also received training and some very sound advice. The Kata team has been with me every step of the way and that in itself has given me huge faith and confidence whilst starting my new journey.Eleanor Lyons
The customer service has been second to none.
Myself and my team have felt reassured and in very safe hands. The training we received was excellent. The Kata team are always happy to go the extra mile and definitely did so for us at many points during the purchase process. This is an honest business and a heartfelt one at that. The tipis are of outstanding quality and I am utterly delighted with them. The only issue is I already want to buy another one!

We have built numerous return on investment models designed for your specific needs… whether it setting up a venue, or a standard Rental Business Profit and Loss.
We have standard business plans for you to utilise should you be looking to finance your investment or raise funds for your venture.
Planning & Infrastructure
We understand that navigating the myriad of planning policies & frameworks can be infuriating! With local policies differing across the country, many customers give up rather than try and secure the relevant consents for a Tipi on their property. We have helped many people on their journey, with advice on when or not a Tipi can be erected, for how long and under which circumstances. We can advise on the potential roadblocks in your way from noise, visual impact and more. Where more detailed help is required, we have a network of experienced planning consultants experienced in Tipi projects who can help.
