Let's Talk Bamboo for Sheets to Clothing to Furniture

A popular species of bamboo that is used for everything from clothing to flooring to furniture is Moso bamboo. Moso bamboo is the most valuable and sustainable species of bamboo in the world.

Amazingly, it regenerates over 100 feet in height in less than 6 months. In this time it grows to its full diameter. Yet it takes another 3 to 4 years for its stalk to mature into a hardness that can be utilized for production. Moso bamboo is one of the strongest building materials known, having been used for construction for over 5,000 years.
