bambu design beautiful products for people and planet. Born in Portland, Oregon (a place which prides itself on local, home-grown and eco-friendly values), they relocated to a place often criticised for its manufacturing processes, China. They wanted to harness the native resources endemic to China - bamboo.
A miracle plant, bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world and is an endlessly renewable resource, growing new shoots from its root system after being harvested. It thrives naturally without using any pesticides or fertilisers, takes in greenhouse gasses and produces 35% more oxygen than the equivalent trees. Read more below products...
bambu produces safe, durable products that will withstand the toughest test: real life. They source materials locally and use local woodworkers, weavers and stitchers. They continually promote fair labour practices and safe working conditions, and 'green' their supply chain. These efforts have been recognised by leading associations and trade groups.
Why we love them: Their simple and intuitive products offer lightness, tactility and functionality. You just want to hold them in your hand and feel their form. Their ideas are inspired by the materials they work with and the products are made in a way that supports sustainable business practices.
