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.
Bamboo is a 100% renewable resource which does not need re-planting, extensive irrigation, pesticides or fertilizer. When bamboo is harvested its natural root system spreads and automatically regenerates itself.
All of our bamboo products are certified by the Food and Drug Administration to be safe for use for food. We have designed our collection of bamboo products to be used for food preparation and presentation, from our cutting boards and utensils, to our beautiful serving bowls and trays. Enjoy using our products to prep and serve all of your favorite cuisines.
All of our products are certified by the FSC. The Forest Stewardship Council protects and ensures that products with the FSC label uphold principles and criteria which bring the highest social and environmental benefits during harvesting. This brings direct benefits to the forests from which we harvest our bamboo, including protecting biodiversity, worker's rights, and areas that have environmental or cultural significance.
The species of bamboo used in the production of our products is not a food source or a habitat for the Giant Panda. There are many types of bamboo that pandas eat, and we proudly use bamboo that does not impact the livelihood of this wonderful animal.
Natural Bacterial Fighting Properties
Scientists found that bamboo has a unique anti-bacterial bio-agent known as "bamboo Kun" which allows bamboo to thrive naturally in the wild without any pesticide
Bamboo is the perfect material for food preparation. It is 16% stronger than Maple and 33% lighter in weight than oak. This substantial, yet light-weight material does not dull knives.
To put it simply, we really love bamboo and know that you will too.
