Using a rural India-centered and earth-centered approach, Bamboopecker though innovation and design provides sustainable alternatives to products used in our everyday lives - from the foundation of a home, to construction, lighting, interiors and furniture, kitchen and dining, home and garden, personal care and fashion.
Uplifting traditional crafts with strong branding, utilitarian designs and provide stable livelihood to it's artisans and by emphasizing the employment of women, Bamboopecker solves the often-ignored yet growing problem of waste, high-embodied carbon products and over reliance on concrete and metal.
Bamboopecker holds training courses for budding rural artisans and tribes of India, sets-up new manageable clusters that are diverse and encourages inter-cluster collaborations through free to use designs.
Natural materials like bamboo, cattail grasses, kora, jute, banana fiber, coconuts and others went into oblivion during the industrial era where the main focus was inventing new man-made materials and least focus on the damage to the green infrastructure of the planet.
We at Bamboopecker are bringing back natural material to the fore with Eco-friendly processes which have no harmful impacts on our health or environment.
At Bamboopecker we draw uninhibited inspiration from nature, culture and arts in our design.
Our design from the get-go was to bridge the gap between sustainable traditional crafts and the urban populace by ensuring that each design has a utilitarian value and an aesthetic that is current.
The idea is to reorient the traditional skills and crafts to the modern context with new techniques and design philosophy that ensures FORM follows FUNCTION, by allowing the function to be obvious, the end user can easily determine how to use and interact with it.
We take a cradle-to-cradle approach to every product, from the design to manufacturing to distribution.
At Bamboopecker, we strive to reduce manufacturing times by introducing machinery, helping artisans to produce more in shorter time.
We try to marry slow design with technology to reduce processing times.
Machinery helps to employ the unskilled at the villages and decouples handmade from processing.
In the future, Bamboopecker seeks to become an interdisciplinary and manufacturing hub, a home for product designers to design and manufacture products with natural materials and rural artisans.
A place for policy analysts to work with government on policy recommendations to revive rural and bamboo based livelihoods and become self-reliant.
Incorporate latest technologies to increase the scale of production and consequently make our Eco-friendly products more affordable to reach the masses.
A go-to place to that helps various industries come up with solutions for a sustainable future.
