About African Reed Thatch

We source our premium grade African reed from eco-responsible sources that provide us with the highest quality reed. The reed used in our panels has been harvested, dried, and hand-woven to make the panels that we layer on each umbrella top cone. At Forever Bamboo, we are committed to providing eco-friendly building materials to our customers at an affordable price. Our thatch goes through numerous quality control tests to ensure only the best product is brought to our inventory. The panels in the umbrella kit come with built in clips that are easy to install onto the top cone covering. Our reed thatch has a lifespan of 8 to 10 years depending on the climate and weather conditions in your area.
