Matting is created from weaving a variety of plant materials into different size panels. They are hand-woven with an assortment of eco-friendly and natural resources.

With a large inventory, we are able to accommodate any size orders.
About Our Matting
All the leaves and barks used in our product are harvested from high quality trees. The leaves and bark are semi-dried then woven into intricate designs. The leaves are plaited when they are not completely dry so they are flexible enough to bend and weave without breaking. The Lauhala and Bac Bac matting are expertly plaited into a 1 inch checkered pattern. The plaited product is then dried completely to lock out deteriorating moisture. The matting then goes through numerous inspections to ensure that the matting passes our high quality standards.
The Lauhala matting is plaited into 1 inch checkered patterns. It comes in a rich tan color that has a slight glossy luxurious sheen. The neutral color of the Lauhala matting will complement any indoor or outdoor space. Lauhala matting is made from palm leaf. The Bac Bac matting comes in a mix of gorgeous hues of coffee and wheat. The mix of colors gives this matting an earthy and organic feel. Bac Bac matting works great for lining tiki bars, walls, or on top of tables for tropical parties! Bac Bac matting gets the unique contrast of dark and light colors from the banana bark.
Lampac is made from blades of grass woven loosely together into a multi toned burlap-like sheet. The rich brown shade of Lampac matting is another gorgeous décor material in our matting series. Abaca cloth is crafted with airy burlap style cloth that can be placed anywhere as décor with ease. It comes in a blend of tan and yellow that will match any room.
The bamboo matting roll is a blond natural color woven using bamboo strips into a herringbone pattern. Bamboo is durable material and is a highly sustainable resource. Add bamboo matting to the walls or ceiling for a wonderful paradise environment.

Sennit rope is a striking tan braided rope that is used as a decorative accent.
Application is easy. The matting can be either glued or stapled to any surface. All our matting is flexible and pliable and can be cut or trimmed without the risk of unraveling.
