Bamboo fashion

By necessity of responding to the trend of ecology, a new material is more and more used in home decoration : bamboo. Utilised for multiple purposes in Asia for more than 4000 years, bamboo eventually starts becoming known in Occident.  The fashion of Asia has accelarated the trend and the ecology movement is the determinative element.

New brands specailized in bamboo based products are created.

Like Bamboo Touch (http://touchofbamboo.com/), which “proposes an ecological alternative of wood in the field of building and interior decoration”. The products of Bamboo Touch vary from parquets to furniture accessories. the brand offers new unique solutions for floor-covering, wall-covering and joinery.

Or like Ekobo (www.ekobo.org/), which offers over 300 decoration, kitchen and crockery products in fruity colors and various finishes, all in bamboo.

    

 

These brands choose bamboo, for reasons of aesthetics, ecology and ethics. Bamboo is an exemplary plant. Because:

– Bamboo doesn’t only grow fast…it grows very fast. It is a natural renewable resource that grows twice as fast as a tree. Certain species can grow up to 1meter par day.

– Bamboo recycles a huge quantity of CO2 (12 tons/hectare) and produces 35% more oxygen than a tree in the same environment.

– Bamboo grows naturally without pesticides, fertilizer or herbicides. It is both rustic and resistant.

– Bamboo grows in all four corners of the world. It nourished, clothes, and is a source of income for more than 2 billion people worldwide.
