Sustainable Shades

The sunshades at El Cabrito are rather curious beauties: They are dishevelled by winds and rooted into the sand they cannot be tilted nor can their height be adjusted. But never the less they resist sun, storm and salt and are dependant to give plenty of shade. Another remarkable feature which is taken very seriously at El Cabrito: They are sustainable. Once their sustaining metal frames have been fixed deeply into the sand damaged palm fronds in the shade are replaced by new ones if necessary. The 35 shades which provide shade in the bay of El Cabrito work without plastic, without rot-proof material or other chemical preservers. They are a gift to nature.
