Furniture and household products
Google ‘Ikea’ and ‘bamboo’ and you will instantly be presented with a range of products made from bamboo. From cupboards to salad bowls to lamps and roller blinds; you simply won’t be able to think of a product for which the world known furniture store doesn’t have a bamboo variant. Bamboo is ultimately suitable for a variety of products, from hard to soft material, strong, sustainable and aesthetically beautiful.
Bamboo clothing offers many advantages. It’s environmentally friendly and super soft. It’s also much better at absorbing respiration moisture than cotton and is very refreshing. There are an increasing number of companies which are now focussed on the development of bamboo clothing. For example, the Dutch Bamboodaddy produces T-shirts, socks, towels, bath sheets and bed linen, all made of bamboo. But there are also some large clothing chains, such as H&M, who believe in this product and are now starting to sell, for example, bamboo underwear.

It is as strong as steel, whilst being incredibly lightweight and capable of flexibly absorbing forces.
