These canopies are made in situ - simple steel frame with bamboo.

Comparing with natural thatch, artificial thatch is long life span up to 20 years. It is highly authentic and free from maintenance and woodwarm.Price less than USD25 per squre meter, not square feet.Good quality,providing sample for checking(mail:eileen@gracethatch.com; skype: eieen.chen1234)

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Wendy Shott added this to Book to Know: 'Marrakesh by Design'
Design a Moroccan-inspired outdoor terrace. In addition to having inner courtyards, Moroccans spend time al fresco on rooftop terraces outfitted for lounging and eating. Make your outdoor area a comfortable place to spend hours reading or connecting with loved ones by setting up a Moroccan salon. Create shade by installing a canvas tent or a rattan roof. Drama is added with a wicker lamp. Tip: Line hurricane lanterns or votives along a surface to serve as decoration during the day. At night, lit lanterns provide a romantic glow.
The Moroccan outdoor lifestyle is all about sun protection and lounging. Rich local textiles bring color and softness to sandy stucco and rattan.
Layer textiles for a well-traveled look. Patterned textiles in indigo and rust mix with rough, weathered wood and woven materials in this Marrakesh space. The woven overhang may be designed as protection from the hot Moroccan sun, but it would work equally well to keep falling leaves off an outdoor dining space anywhere.
Many traditional ethnic patterns are just made for combining. Embroidery of all colors and styles can work in a controlled jumble. Of course, it helps to have a low-key, neutral background like this roof deck does. It allows all those patterns to pop.
6. Textiles. Moroccan fabrics, such as silks or other gauzy textiles, can be used and layered as room dividers, draperies or furniture protectors.Get this look: Hit your local fabric store and keep an eye out for colorful, intricately patterned or gauzy textiles. Mix and match patterns and colors to get the eclectic Moroccan look. You can always turn these textiles into pillows or floor cushions, or drape a few yards over furniture or above outdoor spaces.
Outdoor lounges aren't limited to suburban backyards. A rooftop deck can be turned into a compact retreat with the same elements of deep cushioned seating, residential-style lighting, a table for food and drinks, and some shade. Don't be afraid to pick a theme and have fun with it, as was done with this Marrakesh-inspired lounge.
