Mexican Palm Thatch
Mexican Thatch is the most preferred commercial-grade thatch and is the industry standard for palapa builders and resorts. Forever Bamboo, by Xcel Distribution, offers the greatest selection of sizes of Mexican thatch products. Thatches are easy to install, durable and long-lasting. Thatch can be used indoor or outdoor to give your backyard, Tiki bar, or themed room that tropical look and feel.
Our thatch panels are constructed from woven palm leaves and have the unique ability to withstand the sun and rain as well as having great insulation qualities. A thatch panel is created with natural strips of palm leaves that are woven and dried in the sun. The thatch panels are then sewn and woven together to create sturdy panels that can be layered on top of each other for a beautiful effect. Mexican thatch sheds water while it serves as part of your tropical décor. It can also be used for table skirting for an island atmosphere at your next party or luau. Thatch is woven by hand by those that have been taught it from generation to generation. Since the thatch is hand-woven there are small differences between each piece but the quality is always optimal.
Our thatch is eco-friendly and economically priced. It is also easy to install and use on your tropical projects. Palm thatch has that classic tropical look seen at beaches around the world. Forever Bamboo is always selective when purchasing our thatch products. We provide the finest quality and the largest inventory. Life expectancy for palm thatch is 3-5 years depending on the climate and treatment.
About Mexican Thatch
Mexican thatch panels were originally called “rain capes.” These garments were woven from palm leaves and worn to protect ancient cultures from the elements of climate. These rain capes where layered to keep the rain off and this layering effect allowed the water to roll right off. Today rain-capes are seldom in use in Mexican cultures but its legacy still lives on in the form of thatch structures. Although there are still some pockets of many Pacific Rim countries that still use the rain capes. The tradition of weaving Mexican rain capes is still present in the modern form such as the layering of thatch to keep the rain and sun out. Mexican palm thatch was also popular with outdoor huntsman since it was a great form of camouflage.
Thatch products are now heavily exported from Mexico to North America for tropical shade purposes. The people of Mexico depend on the income produced from this industry. We always consider the health and well-being of the people who make our products. The business helps them for future generations to come.
We have an intensive quality control program making sure each thatch product is checked thoroughly. Our exclusive supplier is selective on purchasing our thatch products making sure the thatch is the best quality. We do not sell thatch that does not meet our high quality standards. The rejects are sold to budget thatch importers that do not care about quality.
It is not recommended that you use any sealers on your thatch. Thatch sealers sold from other online dealers are NOT a proven product and will not help your thatch.
