Synthetic Thatch Applications

Imitation reed and faux palm thatch products can be used in any indoor or outdoor setting to create a stunning tropical atmosphere in your very own living space. Cover cabanas, palapas, tiki bars, gazebos, and umbrellas that same way you would with natural thatch.

Our artificial thatch products are also ideal for indoor installation in both residential and commercial spaces. Give your business or home a fresh new look by decorating wall space, privacy panels, and bar areas with our synthetic thatch panels.

Environmentally Friendly

Our artificial palm and reed thatch products are synthetic building materials made from Polypropylene and High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE). Don’t worry, these artificial products are 100% recyclable and safe for the environment. Not only are synthetic thatch products eco-friendly, they are also cost effective and long lasting. The overall look of synthetic thatch is realistic in appearance and lasts much longer than traditional thatch.

Baja Palm Artificial Thatch

Artificial Baja Palm is made from recyclable polypropylene, a non-toxic plastic that is safe for humans, animals, gardens, and marine environments. Once installed, run off from thatch roofing will not cause harm to your living environment.

This synthetic Baja material is styled to look just like our natural Mexican palm thatch. The warm color tones of browns, tans, and yellows are replicated in each synthetic palm leaf to capture the classic look of natural thatch. Unlike natural Mexican palm leaves, synthetic requires no maintenance or replacement, making it a highly cost effective product for long term use.

Zulu Reed Artificial Thatch

Zulu reed synthetic cape thatch is made from the same recyclable polypropylene material used in our Baja palm artificial thatch. This art thatch product has the same look and feel of natural reed; only Zulu reed lasts twice as long, and no maintenance is required.

Viro Synthetic African and Java Thatch

At Forever Bamboo, we also offer another modern, eco-friendly product that replicates the detailed artistry of African and Java thatch styles. Our Viro synthetic thatch is made from High-Density Polyethylene often referred to as HDPE. This synthetic material does not pose a threat to the environment and is guaranteed to last for years.

We sell two different types of Viro synthetic thatch: African and Java. Our Viro synthetic Java and African thatch can be used to cover tiki huts, umbrellas, palapas, and other sturdy building structures. Viro Java simulates the popular Javanese styled thatch found in Indonesia and provides texture and definition to your project. Viro African is modeled after our natural cape reed thatch which gives a more rustic look to your outdoor setting.

Affordable and Long Lasting

All of Forever Bamboo’s synthetic thatch is built to last and withstand many different climates. Artificial thatch is a cost effective and smart alternative to natural thatch products that generally need to be replaced every 5 years. Building structures with artificial thatch roofing mimic the same luxurious palapa structures that are made from natural thatch products. And remember, our synthetic products are made from high quality commercial grade artificial palm and reed thatch that does not harm the environment.


Subroof thatch panels can easily be installed with staples, nails, or screws on any solid roofing surface. All synthetic thatch products can be cut with a sharp scissor or looping shear just like our natural thatch products. Use any synthetic thatch panel to enhance your building structure for an authentic tropical theme in your very own backyard.
