What Is Mexican Palm Thatch?
Our palm thatch panels are handcrafted in Mexico using traditional weaving techniques that artisans in the country have trusted for centuries. Our artisan partners make them entirely from sustainably sourced palm fronds and leaves.
Historically, Mexican thatch panels were called rain capes, a waterproof garment that was worn during the rainy season. The multiple layers of palm leaves allowed for rain to roll off immediately upon impact. Today, rain capes are seldom used in Mexican culture; however, thatch is still used on building structures for the same purpose. Multiple layers of Mexican palm thatch roofing materials provide water resistance for roofing structures by helping direct the flow outward from the roof’s edge.
