Elegance
Bamboo has a natural beauty. Nothing can compare with the beauty of nature. The distinct grains provide the elegant pattern, which is not only unique but can complement any decor in your room. We offer two hues, natural and carbonized in a smooth matte finish.
Environment
Bamboo has been around for over 200 million years and has survived under the harshest conditions. Following the atomic bombing at Hiroshima in 1945, a bamboo grove at ground zero was reported to have survived and even grew new bamboo shoots - within days! The Mao bamboo that needs to grow to maturity by 5 years is used for the bamboo products and one of the hundreds of species of bamboo, which is not consumed by the panda.
Easy maintenance
Bamboo flooring can be installed in the same way as a wood floor, either directly nailed or glued down. Having a natural resistance to moisture and mildew, it is ideal for both commercial and residential buildings. Bamboo flooring is also easy to maintain. Regular dust mopping or vacuuming is all that is required to keep it clean and beautiful.
We cannot design bamboo, but we do design the flooring!
