Bamboo holds the promise of a sustainable, cost effective and ecologically responsible alternative to the widespread clear cutting of our world's precious timberland. It does not require replanting, making it one of the most renewable resources known. The species we use, Moso timber bamboo is not a food source, or a habitat, for the Giant Panda.
The Color of Bamboo: Our bamboo comes in two colors, light, which is the natural color of the bamboo and dark, which is a honey color. The dark color is achieved by steaming the bamboo, bringing out the natural sugars, caramelizing it. This color is permanent and will not fade or wash out. Bamboo is a natural product with naturally-occurring imperfections and variations in color, grain and appearance.
The goal of Totally Bamboo is to be recognized as the leader in changing the way the world uses bamboo, as the new, ecologically renewable alternative to hard woods.
