The Bambusa Longisias are a kind of bamboo of the grass family. However, they are smaller and softer and don’t have the node in culm.
Like Bambo, Bambusa is considered to be one of the most sustainable ‘lignified material’ species, mostly because its growth speed is more than 10 times quicker than that of hardwood (around 5 years compared to at least 50 years). Bambu can be harvested without the need to replant, because the root system is left intact when it is harvested.
At the same time, its root structure has the ability to hold the soil in place and prevent erosion. Finally, in its natural environment, it will need no irrigation, no pesticides and no fertiliser.
Basketry is made from the skin of Bambusa.They are durable,
clean and safe materials, no need any chemical to protect them from the bacteria. This is an amazing characteristic of this material.
