Bamboo Products

All of our bamboo is sustainably grown, harvested and processed in South Africa. We offer untreated and treated bamboo culms (poles) and splits. For treatment against insects and fungi, we use a non-fixing method using Boric Acid and Borax. The bamboo nodes are punctured and the bamboo is soaked in the solution until the salts penetrate the bamboo fibres (1-2 weeks). The bamboo is then dried and cured over 3 months, whereafter it is ready for use. Boric Acid and Borax are not harmful to humans and pets.
