designers cleverly marry the minimalist design with selected layering techniques to show off the authentic characteristic node pattern of the bamboo. The result is one distinctively good looking sustainable package.
Due to bamboo’s extensive root system that continually sends up new shoots to replenish itself, it is renewable without the need to replant. Bamboo is strictly speaking a form of grass; it has a sturdy, hollow stem that grows to a harvestable height between 3 – 6 years. It is hard to believe that this versatile material is 3 times harder than some of the best known hardwood around and yet it grows up to 15 times faster. Bamboo is one the fastest growing plant on the planet and can grow up to a meter a day!
uses the highest quality of 100% renewable Moso bamboo that is grown without fertilisers, pesticides or irrigation. We do not use artificial dyes or stains and no dying process means it’s safer for you and the environment. The beautiful honey colour is ‘steamed’ to perfection, as the natural sugar in the bamboo is literally caramelised during the heating process. The colour is thus permanent and will not wash off.
The manufacturing process is energy efficient unlike the typical ceramic sanitary ware that requires up to 16 hours of baking in a 1200̊C plus gas kiln.
Bamboo has long been used very extensively in Asia to produce everything from cooking utensils, to musical instruments, to scaffolding. Due to bamboo’s eco-friendly properties and advancement in manufacturing techniques, this natural material has gained increased popularity in recent years all over the world; notably in hardwearing flooring, and in designer accessories for the home.
