Have you ever wondered how Mexican Rain Capes got their name? Once upon a time, this versatile form of thatch was actually worn as clothing. Cultures around the globe knotted together palm leaves to form capes that offered protection from the elements. Today, you’re unlikely to spot someone wearing Mexican thatch. However, there are plenty of other uses for this fun, affordable material. Presently, Mexican Rain Capes are ideal thatch coverings used to create a tropical oasis in resorts, theme parks, water parks and zoos.
Mexican Rain Capes come in three styles.
With so many sizes and shapes to choose from, it’s easy to use Mexican Rain Cape Thatch for your application. Plus, this natural thatch product’s knotty construction means that it can be cut without unraveling. Its plush nature also allows sections to be connected with no visible seams. Mexican Rain Thatch can be installed on both an open frame or plywood. As an added bonus, it can be treated with a fire retardant for safety.
Mexican thatch is one of the most budget-friendly forms of thatch and lasts indefinitely indoors. However, it does have one drawback. It’s unlikely to last more than 18 months outside.
Fortunately, there is a solution, and it’s an amaZulu synthetic version.
