The hard part about thatch is beginning from scratch; you need lots of
material, harvested at the correct time and treated properly post-harvest.
Also, a managed reed bed, for instance, will furnish better thatch which is
easier to harvest. I think there are oportunities here for artesanal
enterprises, and perma-connections to make with, f'rinstance, your sawage
wetland system. Currently, if you need thatch for your tropical theme bar,
f'rinstance, you'd generally buy it pre-prepared and shipped in from some
not-totally-plasticized part of the world.
