Makuti

Also known as Devon reed, Makuti or coconut leafs; Makuti is a by-product of a coconut tree, .

Process

Combed Makuti is a material produced by coconut leafs with a binder and tying into sheaves.

The sheaves are stooked in the field and follow the same process as Long Straw. Next, the Threshing Machine has a Comber on the top which combes the straws, then it goes into a trusser and is tied into bundles of Combed Makuti.

So the complete harvested makuti is dried, producing ‘combed Makuti’. This produces the material ready to be used for thatching.

Trimmed Finish

Most of the work we do is Makuti roofs, as it gives a neat, trimmed look and finish, with a smoother finish than other materials used.
