About Lauhala Matting

All of our highly durable and finely woven Lauhala matting is imported straight from the Philippines. Lauhala matting is made from sturdy Hala palm leaves that have been dried in the sun. The leaves are then woven together in a 1 inch checkered pattern to complete the signature look of Lauhala matting. The Hala palm leaves used in our matting are eco-friendly, recyclable, and biodegradable. Compared to other natural fibers such as sisal, Hala is twice as strong and will last for years to come.

Applications and Uses

Our eco-friendly Lauhala mats are a multifunctional product that can be used to decorate or remodel any indoor or outdoor space. This natural product is comprised of warm shades of tans and browns that capture the tropical ambience of popular island destinations. Use Lauhala matting as wainscoting or lining for walls, tiki bars, ceilings, or table tops. This matting will accent and provide texture to any open space in your home or business. We also recommend using our bamboo slats as a finishing trim when applying multiple layers of matting on solid surfaces.

Easy Installation

Lauhala mats can be easily installed on any solid surface with glue, staples, or nails. The Hala material that is used in our matting is flexible and can be cut with a sharp scissor or blade. Before resizing, we recommend applying tape to the back of the matting so that it will not fray or unravel when cut. If used outdoors, extend the lifespan of your matting by applying a coat of protective varnish. The varnish will provide additional sheen and durability, making it ideal for long term use.

Origins of Lauhala Matting

Lauhala matting is a popular product that originated in the South Pacific islands and is also known as “banig”. In the Philippines, this banig was used as a sleeping mat because of its exceptionally soft, but flexible texture. Traditional banig mats are still sold today and come in various sizes, patterns, colors, and designs. The dried Hala leaves are not only a renewable resource, but abundant in number. Lauhala weaving is an ancient tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation and continues to be recognized as a work of art.
