Bamboo Designs design and manufacture furniture and kitchens (countertops and cabinetry) using solid bamboo furniture board. The bamboo is imported from China where it is grown and manufactured into furniture board and flooring. Bamboo takes in more carbon dioxide during growth than it gives off during the entire manufacturing process; reaches its full height and maturity in 6 years; and does not stop growing once it has been cut down. It is therefore a highly sustainable, eco-friendly product. Bamboo Design furniture is made by cabinet makers in Kommetjie (Cape Town).
