Bamboo Products

The most common form, particularly in southeast Asia, uses thin bamboo stems that are cut as flat as possible. They are cut to similar lengths and can be stained, varnished, or simply used as is. They are then nailed down to wooden beams or bigger pieces of bamboo stems. This form results in more space between each bamboo stem; flatness and tightness is not emphasized. This technique is usually used on stilted houses, resulting in better air circulation especially during the warmer summer months.

All our products are made from strips of bamboo. Bamboo as a building material is unique in that it is actually a grass and grows as stalks known as culms. These culms are naturally hollow in the center and therefore we have only the wall thickness of the stalk to work with. The wall at the base can be more than an inch thick but will taper over the length of the stalk.
