It is Beautiful
The delicate grain of bamboo, whether natural or amber-toned, make it a distinctive, elegant, and subtle material for photo and rustic art prints.
Very Strong and Durable
Bamboo can withstand a great deal of use without damage. It’s stronger even than oak, considered the most durable hardwood. Bamboo doesn’t swell or shrink as hardwoods do, making it ideal as a photo or rustic art canvas.
Fast Growing Renewable Resource
Bamboo is not a tree—it’s a grass, and it grows like one. Many species of bamboo can grow two feet or more a day. When it’s harvested, it need not be replanted, because it will grow a new shoot from its extensive root system. So bamboo renews itself readily, unlike hardwood trees, which, once cut, are gone forever. Bamboo is an endlessly renewable resource.
Helps to Enhance the Environment and Soil
Farmed bamboo stabilizes the earth with its roots, preventing erosion. It takes in greenhouse gasses and produces oxygen. In fact 35% more oxygen than an equivalent stand of trees. It can also provide habitat for birds and animals (though our bamboo is not preferred by pandas, and is therefore panda-safe).
It’s World-Wide and Historic.
Our bamboo comes from China, but the adaptable bamboo will grow most places on earth. Wherever it is native, bamboo has been integral to the economy and culture, used for cooking, beverages, paper, houses, and bridges. In China, it’s known as the “friend of the people”.
