The materials, finishes, innovations and application of craftsmanship are highly selective and always carefully considered
Our traditional South African thatch is pre-fabricated into tiles that can be easily clipped on to a metal frame or rope. Cape reed is a solid reed and has a life expectancy of 6-10 years, and can be pre-fabricated into a thatched tile which can be replaced easily. A re-thatching service is offered by our company. Traditional thatch will age and change colour over time. Aged reed has a natural grey-like appearance.
The combination thatch tile consists of a layer of extruded polyolefin imitation thatch with the natural cape reed underneath. This artificial layer of thatch protects the natural reed from the elements, reducing colour changes and deterioration, giving this tile a longer life expectancy.
