Meet YURTA, the finest yurt made in Canada and the most thoughtfully designed shelter of its kind on earth. Yurta is a unique all-season shelter that is:
Yurta is a contemporary adaptation of traditional Mongolian yurts, and an original design rooted in its nomadic heritage. We build comfortable and inspiring living spaces in the best of tent making tradition. Yurta is a functional shelter that deploys in about two hours without turning a screw or hammering a nail. Designed and made for extreme climates, Yurta is weatherproof out-of-the box, and tested to carry wind and snow loads. Yurta is the super duty tent you will own for a lifetime.
We have proudly designed, sourced and manufactured locally in Canada since 2004. Each Yurta is still handcrafted from local materials that are natural and non-toxic. Yurta includes very best quality of materials and finish. We love what we do and the care in our production will be visible in your Yurta. Love is the secret ingredient.
Yurta is a breathable tent – condensation from users and extreme humidity fluctuations is allowed to breathe out of the yurt. Yurta uses no impermeable bubble-wrap insulation or impermeable vinyl covers which tend to trap condensation which promotes mold growth. To learn more about why we think vinyl is evil, see our FAQ.
We are uncompromising when it comes to our materials. Our frame is made of custom-milled clear hardwood. Known for its density and flexibility, white ash is hand-selected, shaped and assembled into a very strong structure. Our insulation is made exclusively for us and combines the thermal benefits of 100% real wool felt with the radiant performance of a reflective layer. Outer covers are sealed by hand for water resistance and all elements are purpose-built.
