Traditional Yurt Makers

…and Other Nomadic Tents and Tent Palaces

From sapling to frame, we make traditional Turkmen, and Mongolian yurts: the soft contrast of canvas on wood, the warmth of a felt inner lining and the wood-burning stove has made these amazing tents an alternative dwelling and attractive solution for campsites, a new way to host people in nature. The undeniable beauty of living in the round brings us all back to a tribal origin and a feeling of belonging.

Yurt-making is our craft, and we have worked hard to maintain the traditional designs.

The Turkmen Yurt

Elegant, curved roof profile

Our yurts are all made from sustainable hardwood – we either source it on our own land in Abruzzo, or buy it from a local friendly sawmill. We work the wood using all traditional methods, to ensure an amazing level of craftsmanship and quality of product. These traditional bent-wood yurts of the Turkmen people are one option for yurts for glamping sites, the other being the straight roofed Mongolian Ger. We offer many sizes and finishes of yurts, from small kid size, to grand palaces. We also now offer our large yurt for hire.
