ABOUT US

Made of Bamboo is a design platform to promote sustainability and good design through the use of bamboo. We believe that good design should not only be aesthetically pleasing but should be fit for purpose and good for the environment. Bamboo is a highly sustainable and versatile material with a range of uses across many areas. Over the past few years use of bamboo has significantly increased due to this and ranges from clothes, furniture, toys to buildings. As part of made of bamboo we intend to bring new and innovative bamboo products to the market.

Made of Bamboo is an open platform where anyone can submit their designs. Shortlisted designs will be uploaded on the website for voting and the the designs that receive the most votes will be available for sale on the website.
