Why Bamboo?

02 July, 2021

Consumers are increasingly concerned with the sources and environmental impact of raw materials as they are with the appearance, feel, and functioning of the items themselves. Developing a thorough awareness of the worth of various materials, taking into account their advantages and disadvantages, is a vital talent to have while creating.

Bamboo is sometimes disregarded outside of the domain of traditional Chinese furniture, even though you could use it for both the structural composition of furniture and its pulp may be made into textile for upholstery.

Bamboo can be collected after only 3-5 years and prepared mechanically or chemically, with each method offering different physical characteristics and socio-ecological imprints. China, India, Myanmar, and Thailand are the world's biggest sources of bamboo, a product that is frequently referred to as sustainable because:

  • It uses space effectively.
  • It does not require the use of pesticides, insecticides, or irrigation.
  • It maintains soil health and avoids soil erosion.
  • It absorbs carbon dioxide and produces oxygen.

WHY CONSIDER BAMBOO

Strength

Bamboo is sometimes overlooked due to its lightness. It has been demonstrated that its tensile strength is more excellent than steel. Because of this, its fibers are utilized to reinforce composite structures, and its strength improves after lamination. Bamboo is more resistant to rot than typical hardwoods. It can resist any use. You can use them to construct benches and bedroom furniture. It is laminated to make it stronger and hence last longer. 

Flexibility

Bamboo has a delicate grain that allows craftspeople to bend it into many shapes. This is accomplished by heating and clamping it to form the desired forms. Bamboo fibers are great to sit on and have the elasticity to bend with a person's weight when utilized in furniture. 

Environment Friendly

Bamboo multiplies at an astonishing rate. All grasses have little suckers at the root of the mother plant, which is typical. It takes a few months for others to regrow when they are chopped down. You are not required to replant them once you have cut them down. Because of its high growth rate and protective layer, bamboo may be produced sustainably without pesticides and fertilizers.

Plants naturally absorb toxic chemicals such as carbon dioxide. As a result, the concentration of this gas in the atmosphere is reduced. Bamboo can absorb gases better than any other plant, according to biological evidence. As a consequence, it is safe to cultivate and then use them to produce household things.

Lightweight

Bamboo is one of the lightest materials used in the manufacture of tables, chairs, and beds. This makes transporting bamboo furniture when moving into and out of your home simple. As a result, it is preferable for outdoor furniture, such as benches. It is a useful material for larger furniture pieces such as desks, benches, and cabinets, allowing users to lift and relocate their furniture as they like.

Low maintenance

Bamboo furniture is exceptionally smooth due to a natural oil coating that resides in its fibers, and it is effortlessly cleaned. All you have to do is wipe them down with a damp towel.

IS IT SAFE TO BE USED OUTDOORS?

Bamboo furniture has lower water resistance and must be kept indoors during heavy rains. Direct sunlight contact should also be minimized to preserve the furniture from being destroyed by the intense sun rays. Keep bamboo furniture in a protected spot away from direct sunshine. They should be carefully covered with a weatherproof covering during the brutal winters or heavy rainfall. Additionally, a suitable coating with an outdoor sealer extends the life of the furniture.
