About Mexican Thatch

Historically, palapa thatch was first used as shelter and clothing. But we know you're not here because you want to make a thatch bikini. You're here for something grander. Thatching is most notably an ancient roofing art, originally used in tropical and temperate climates.

Fortunately, thatching transcends the historic boundaries of roofing. It's an economically and environmentally sound way to naturally accent, beautify, or simply cover anything you’d like. Some common thatching projects include tiki bars, gazebos, ceilings, windows, walls, umbrellas and roofs.

Our Mexican thatch products are made from the highest quality palm leaves found in Mexico. The palm leaves are cut and cured into strips and are then woven together into beautifully laid out thatch rolls or panels. This technique is also done to ensure durability and longevity.

Mexican thatch was originally called "rain capes" because they were used as shelter during the rainy season. Now, when designed and installed properly, thatch is made to have rainwater roll off the structure.
