Why Bamboo?

So why Bamboo? Bamboo is the future.  It is the most beautiful, versatile, tallest and strongest material that we could possibly choose. The rain-forest is almost gone, plywood is mostly made from the rain-forest and cement has a carbon load that is not going to help the future. That leaves bamboo and if children plant bamboo today in eight years they will have timber ready to go and they will get timber every year for the rest of their life to build anything they need.

Grow your Furniture

Trees don't grow back after being felled. 

Bamboo does!! 

Highly Renewable!

A new shoot comes up almost immediately and bamboo can grow up to 4 ft in a day!! 

Imagine this - By the time bamboo is processed, treated and manufactured into goods, a new shoot is almost in its mid-age. 

So we say “Grow your Furniture”

Timber Access

Bamboo is a shallow rooted plant and grows in a clumping manner. 

Clumping habit helps bamboo generate copious amount of usable timber over its life time.  

Stop Cutting Trees

Trees takes 20 years or more to provide mature raw material.

Bamboo takes just 1-3 years to be harvested depending on its end usage - Basketry, furniture or construction.

Low Embodied Carbon

With its three-year growth cycle and carbon sequestration it is a uniquely efficient and responsible resource. 

Even sustainable timber can’t begin to compare with bamboo as a conscientious building material.


Bamboo is strong, with the compressive force of concrete and the strength-to-weight ratio of steel.

Throughout Asia, bamboo has always been regarded as sacred, symbolizing grace, strength, flexibility, endurance and longevity. 

Ancient literature held bamboo in profound esteem: “When the storm comes, the bamboo bends with the wind. When the storm ceases, it resumes its upright position.”
