Bamboo is actually a grass that grows to a harvestable height between 3 and 5 years.  Some species grow up to 2 feet per day.  After harvesting, bamboo does not require replanting as it has an extensive root system that continually sends up new shoots.  This process of naturally replenishing itself makes it one of the most renewable resources on the planet.

Bamboo is 16% harder than maple and 1/3 lighter in weight than oak, yet in some instances as strong as steel.  Bamboo holds the promise of a sustainable, cost effective, and ecologically responsible alternative to the widespread clear-cutting of our old growth forests.

The bamboo used for our countertops is commonly known as ‘Moso’ and is grown 300 miles west of Shanghai, China.  This part of the country has a temperate climate which encourages a slower growing bamboo producing a much denser, harder and durable stalk.  Unlike most hardwoods, it absorbs very little moisture and consequently does not shrink or swell as much making it a superior choice for countertops.
