I watched a great program yeaterday on Nanotextiles....maybe the next frontier for TIPIS.....imagine a water proof fabric that will breath to let condensate escape....maybe not too far in the future....here is a quote from a nanotextile website...Dave

What is Nanotechnology?

Nanotechnology has been described as the thorough three-dimensional control of materials, processes and devices at the atomic-scale level (1x10-9m). In the case of textiles, treatments on the nano-scale can impart interesting properties such as water and oil repellency, stain resistance, anti-bacterial properties, fragrance release, anti-static properties, etc. More>>

Thanks for the post; I'm interested, you bet. Of course, all them little nanos are going to have to hold hands VERY tightly comes 100mph winds!

Now, which fragrance would you like in the tipi tonight my little chicadee?

Nano-Tex received the 2003 Small Times Magazine ‘Best of Small Tech Company’ Award, an annual recognition for the best people, products and companies in nanotechnology.
Our mission is to create, change and improve textile functionality through molecular engineering. Dedicated teams of scientists explore the possibilities and focus the application of this technology to develop bold new and innovative products to suit the markets, lifestyles and standards of today and tomorrow. Nano-Tex invents novel fabric functionality through the controlled modification of fabric surfaces. This represents a disruptive technology that creates opportunities in the marketplace. This paradigm shift allows one to obtain performance characteristics that can not be obtained using traditional, random coating/finishing methods. Our products use less chemistry to create greater performance coupled with improved durability and fabric hand.

Depending on the particular element used, nanoparticles are ten times stronger than steel
