Handmade from sustainable Mexican palm leaves, this thatch rain cape with its shaggy exterior and woven diamond-patterned underside creates an immediate tropical vibe. It’s an easy to use material which comes in a range of sizes and can be nailed, stapled or tied into place in single or double-layers for different effects to give your bar or yard or hut an authentic South Seas-style makeover.

Naturally water-repellent so ideal for use both indoors and outdoors. Colour may vary slightly from that shown.

Size: Size: 1.2m (4ft) x 2.4m (8ft). Covers 2.8sqm.

If required these thatch panels can be treated with a fire-retardant spray for use indoors,
contact for information on the products they supply that are
suitable for this.


We recommend layering these thatch panels at 15 CM intervals for the best overall look and attached using a staple gun or nails onto a bamboo frame or wooden structure. Layering should start from the bottom edge of the roof and finish at the highest point. To finish we recommend using a split half bamboo pole to cover any joins.

How long will it last?

It is difficult to say but in Northern climates there will be a degree of degradation from the wet and windy weather, but we generally only hear from people wanting a top up after 1-2 years of installation. To stop the wind and the birds seeing it as bedding you can always add a net or mesh to secure it.
