Why I am so passionate about bamboo?
It is incredible in strength, beauty, and the infinite things that can be done with it. It grows very fast, can be eaten, and is environmentally friendly. I feel, that harvesting bamboo for building houses and furnitures helps Mother Earth.
Natural innovative building with bamboo and clay/adobe, and making bamboo furniture, are both gaining popularity. Bamboo is a highly regarded material due to its storm and earthquake resistance, provided it is built well. It is also a fast-growing and resilient resource. This ancient art, long forgotten, is now finding its way back into modern life.
