Why Use Mexican Palm Leaf Thatch

There are many uses of a Mexican palm leaf thatch in a house. You probably have seen one but do not know that it is a thatch. Leaf thatch is commonly used in tiki bars as a decoration. It is usually placed on the walls or on the roofs of small huts. This is because it can give an exotic or a tropical ambience, which the owner is aiming for. Aside from aesthetic purposes, the leaf thatch also has practical uses.

The thatch is not something new. In fact, it was already used for centuries in most Asian countries and other parts of the globe. If you visit a third world country, you will see that the leaf thatch is still used in their daily lives. For rice farmers who have to visit their field even if it is raining, thatch is commonly used as a raincoat. If you visit an isolated area in an Asian country, you will see that most houses are made out of palm leaf thatch. There are many reasons why they use a palm leaf thatch as the roofing and the walls of their homes. The first one is because a thatch is inexpensive. The materials needed for the creation of the thatch are locally found in their area. Another reason why they utilize the thatch is that it is well suited in their climate, which is very hot during the dry seasons and continuously raining during the wet seasons.

You can also utilize the benefits of a Mexican palm leaf thatch. You can build a small hut in your yard and give it a Mexican palm leaf thatch roofing. The thatch can prevent water from getting into the insides of the hut when it is raining. It can also let the air pass through during the hot seasons making the hut a refreshing and relaxing place to stay. The leaf thatch is intricately hand woven to ensure that it will not fall apart when used. This also ensures that the leaves in the thatch will be evenly distributed.

Aside from roofing in your garden hut, there are also other uses of the thatch in your home. It also works well as patio cover, table skirt and in a “Gilligan’s” or “Survivor” theme parties. You can also use it as a roofing for your tree house project. If you are worried that it may be a fire hazard since it is made from dried palm leaves, do not worry too much. The Mexican palm leaf thatch comes with exterior fire retardant to ensure the safety of its users.

There are websites that focus on tropical designs that you can go to and order a palm leaf thatch. All of the transaction process will be done online so, you may have to use your credit card for the purchase of Mexican palm leaf thatch.
