Mostly because it is a very beautiful material and because bamboo is of really high quality and durability, but foremost because it is a sustainable choice. Bamboo, which is actually a type of grass, grows significantly faster than trees – up to a meter per day. This means that the bamboo is ready to be harvested after 4-6 years – in comparison to trees that use about 50 years. During growth, bamboo absorbs more Co2 than is released during production, something that makes it Co2 neutral over the complete lifecycle. And it grows this fast without using any pesticides, herbicides or artificial fertilizers.
We use Moso bamboo, which only works with certified plantations, in our furniture. Because of this we can be sure that the bamboo is not only sustainable, but also produced responsibly.
