Welcome to Mud Designs
Fibre Thatch personnel have been involved in thatch structures in Western Australia since the early 1980's.
Bali, or Indonesian thatch, was initially used, but discontinued. It was found to be quite unsuitable for most outdoor areas due to the strong prevailing winds resulting in damage and a reduced lifespan.
In 1991, through the landscape company Proscape, and later Sunshader W.A., Cape Reed Thatch from South Africa was used with great success. Many of the photographs located on this webpage are produced by these original suppliers of thatch in this state.
Cape Reed Thatch is available in panels which can be clipped onto existing structures (if suitably designed), or provided in kit form from small umbrellas to large round, oval, square, or rectangular structures (especially using soft corners).
Advantages of using the Fibre Thatch company
- Draws on over 20 years thatching experience in Australia
- Incorporates a total landscape design approach to the project
- We have the passion to constantly improve the finished product
- Fibre Thatch personnel have been involved in every aspect of design, refinement and construction of high quality kits which have found a home in all corners of Australia.
Depending on the project, Cape Reed Thatch or Fibre Thatch can be adapted for your specific need.
