There are some 1,500 species of bamboo worldwide.

The MOSO species is found in low mountain areas of Eastern China, where it is exposed to extreme changes in temperatures. It is these temperature cycles, soil chemistry and hours of sunlight that give MOSO bamboo its strong durable properties.

The MOSO species need 5 years to grow to adult height and become hard enough to be processed.

The time of harvest is crucial and only the most experienced person can get it right.

Regular harvesting actually encourages further growth of the bamboo plant.

Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on the planet and can grow up to a metre a day in tropical regions!

MOSO bamboo product ‘Density’ is equal to the hardness of a wood such as Jatoba.
