Bamboo is one of the  most beautiful and functional sustainable  resources in the world.

The use of bamboo will remarkably reduce the consumption of timber, so as to preserve the forests and environment.

We are finally rediscovering  how to use bamboo as our ansestors have:

For thousands of years humankind has used bamboo to fashion weapons,food, shelter and medicine. There  is something about its durability and simplicity that brings us back into harmony with the natural world from which we all belong.

Strength and Beauty is bamboos signature.

Bamboo can be found in green forests swaying gently in the breeze towering overhead. Deceptively fragile?  Bamboo has a tinsel strength that approaches that of steel.  When made into a cutting board it tests out at 16% harder than rock maple yet is lighter than many other hard woods.

Bamboo is the most sustainable resource that we have been given:    

 When bamboo is harvested nothing is lost. The root structure is invincible and the  green bamboo tubes grow quickly back to their original size. As a matter of fact periotic harvest –usually 3-5 years helps to strengthen the Bamboo and keep it vibrant.

The bamboo spices that  we use is referred to as "Moso" which is a member of the grass family. Its grows in  a temperate climate which encourages a slower growing bamboo tube and therefore producing a much denser, harder and durable  stalk. It absorbs very little moisture and consequently does not shrink or swell  making it a superior choice of material for cutting boards and bowls

Bamboo is 100% Non Toxic:

Prior to production the bamboo is not altered in any way.   Our bonding agents are water based,free of formaldehyde, and contain no toxins.  Every part of our process is done within FDA guidelines.  Color shifts are obtained by heating of the bamboo material  so that the native sugars within the material carmelize and hence darken.  No stains dyes or paints are used on  our products.

 

Bamboo holds the promise of a sustainable, cost effective, and ecologically responsible alternative to the widespread clear cutting of our sacred forests which is completely unnecessary.

 This beautiful plant has been put into the natural world for our use and  comes complete with the promise that it can never be depleted.
