Reed Thatched Single Pole Palapa Kits
When you order your African thatch patio umbrella we will make your exotic kit to order using premium reed thatch from our large inventory. Please expect up to a 4 week production time.

Forever Bamboo’s reed palapa kits are strong and lovely, sturdy enough to stay up year round in most climates. Our African thatch single pole palapa umbrella kits come in two sizes; 7 feet and 9 feet diameters.

Note that these are assembled sizes. The metal umbrella frames themselves are 6 feet and 8 feet around, respectively. All diameters are for umbrella size once completed with the thatch installed. So the effective shade area of these exotic reed thatched tropical palapa umbrellas, once assembled, varies naturally between 6.5’ and 8’.

Forever Bamboo™ African reed Single Pole Palapa Umbrella Kits come with high quality panels of Cape Reed thatch and a top cone to cap it with. The reed thatch panels come on a metal frame with clips for an easy install. This exotic single pole reed palapa has a beautiful and traditional conical shape.

Our exotic reed thatched patio umbrella has a rustic texture filled with a mix of tropical tans, warm browns, and subtle greens. They come with a 6” diameter umbrella pole that will fit any patio table that can accommodate patio umbrellas of that size.

African Thatch Structures Are Great For Home or Business
Add instant appeal to any poolside or landscaping! Reed thatched patio umbrellas liven up a restaurant patio and outdoor living spaces. Forever Bamboo’s single pole palapa kits are made using only top grade products that are popular with both businesses and home owners.

Our reed umbrella kits have the classic look of African thatched roofs and are a quick way to instantly transform any outdoor space or indoor courtyard into an exotic safari experience. They’re great for both home and business use!

Please note that our single pole palapa umbrellas need to be installed in a stand or in the ground once assembled. This will keep them steady and secure against strong winds.
