Tahitian/Fiji Palm Thatch

Tahitian Palm Thatch, also known as Fiji thatch, is a popular roofing material used for outdoor structures that can transform your outdoor space into a tropical paradise. Our thatch panels include skillfully woven palm leaves connected with heavy-duty nylon string. Contractors and palapa builders often prefer Tahitian palm thatch for both residential and commercial applications. Compared to other natural thatch products, Fiji thatch can last ten years or longer. Proper maintenance and treatment will help extend the lifespan of your thatch even in harsh weather conditions. Tahitian thatch can often be seen in beachfront resorts, water parks, and poolside cabanas to create a traditional tropical look.

About Tahitian Thatch

Our Tahitian thatch products have been designed to replicate and capture the authentic tropical style of the Tahitian islands and south Pacific regions. Tahitian palm thatch is also known as Fiji, Fijian, or Brazilian thatch and is very cost effective. The dried palm leaves used in our paneling have been specially dried in the sun to ensure consistency in size, shape, and quality. These panels are also woven with commercial-grade nylon string to secure the leaves in place.

Each panel measures 3 feet in length and 2 feet in height. Order three or more panels in one purchase to receive free shipping. We also offer economically-priced bundle quantities that come with 4 (3 ft x 2 ft) pre-assembled panels ready for installation. To top off your project, we offer round top pieces that come in a diameter of 36". For your convenience, we also sell Thatch Safe, a fire retardant and sealant made especially for thatch. This treatment will make your Fiji thatch fire and pest resistant.

Environmentally Friendly

Tahitian thatch is an eco-friendly and recyclable resource that is economically priced for the consumer. Like bamboo, this renewable resource can be repeatedly harvested without killing the tree from which the leaves grow. Palms grow in tropical regions all over the world and require less water and maintenance than other traditional wood bearing resources. Thatch products can be installed by hand without having to use harmful chemicals or heavy machinery. The palm leaves harvested to make thatch products are skillfully hand-woven into an attractive aesthetic piece perfect for enhancing your living space.


Tahitian thatch has a wide range of applications in both interior and exterior environments. Typically, customers use Fiji palm thatch as roofing to beautify exterior surroundings. Cover the following types of structures with layers of Tahitian thatch to make a water-resistant shade:

  • Palapas
  • Tiki bars
  • Cabanas
  • Gazebos
  • Sheds
  • Umbrellas
  • Covered decks
  • Pavilions
  • Overhangs
  • Treehouses
  • Pet houses

If you plan to use Tahitian palm thatch for an exterior application, remember to seal it to keep it in top condition. Certain businesses may have to use a sealant treatment to comply with fire codes. Remember to research any municipal or building standards before decorating with Fiji palm thatch.

However, don't let Fiji thatch's standard purposes limit your imagination. Tahitian thatch is a versatile product that can be used to repurpose any room in your home or business.

When you use Fiji palm thatch panels to cover flat surfaces, consider making it one-of-a-kind by attaching small accents. Intersperse faux tropical flowers of different colors throughout the panel. Or, add small figures or print-outs of surfboards, aquatic creatures and seashells for beachy vibes.
