Thatch

Forever Bamboo offers a great selection of thatch to give your backyard, tiki bar or outdoor space that tropical look and feel with palm thatching. Easy to install, our palm thatch panels are constructed from the leaves of palms and have the unique ability to withstand sun, rain and wind as well as having great insulation qualities. Palm thatch panels are constructed by taking natural palm leaves, making them into strips and then curing them. They are then woven into what we call "thatch" to make a number of different products.
