Some people talk about being organic, We live by it!
Why Bamboo? You ask....
Bamboo is one of the most remarkable resources on Earth. As a member of the grass family, not a tree, it grows at a much quicker rate than any other wood. From start to harvest (60-70 feet tall) it can take just four years. Bamboo is naturally anti-microbial, therefore stopping bacteria from growing. It is also one of the strongest yet lightest materials around. Bamboo is 16% stronger than Maple and is 33% lighter in weight than Oak. What is probably most remarkable is its unique extensive root system. When bamboo is harvested its natural root system spreads and automatically regenerates itself.
Virtually all of the bamboo we harvest is used in the process. When we harvest the bamboo stalks at 70 feet it is cut up and divided into different production materials. The bottom section is primarily used for flooring and building materials. This is usually the toughest and hardest pieces to bend. The middle section is used by our factories to make these lovely handcrafted products ranging from our assorted boards to versatile bowls and everything in between. The top section is used for smaller thinner items such as chop sticks, and accessory items.
Even the saw dust created during the cutting is collected and mixed in with other materials to create a concrete like substance used for building and fixing a variety of items.
