Bamboo Specifics

Bamboo is the strongman of the plant world, with a seemingly unmatched tensile strength. Even the finest of bamboo shaving retains its durability. These strips can then be woven, lending their natural strength and flexibility to our artisan bamboo handbag.

Bamboo rightfully earns its place as one of the top alternative materials, both reusable and recyclable. The tenacity of this fibrous material means many industries now favor it over traditional alternatives. Its ease of growth and low production costs are undoubtedly contributing factors to bamboo’s success. With possible uses in the hospitality, arts, and construction sector, it’s no wonder this panda grass is so popular!

On top of this, bamboo also has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, making it ideally suited for daily use products. From kitchen utensils, over cups and placemats to even toothbrushes, and of course, this artisan bamboo clutch. We’ve also got more artisan bamboo bags from another artisan producer.

Fun Fact! Did you know that bamboo shoots are edible? Daily consumption in curries, soups, and salads is typical all across South East Asia. Perhaps you could have a look at your exotic grocers or track down some canned ones? Being creative and experimenting with food never hurt anyone!
