Bambu has created a distinctive collection of functional well-designed products for modern living.
All Occasion Veneerware Disposables
Cutting and Serving Boards
Original and contemporary bamboo cutting and serving boards are
indispensable and made to last. They are elegantly designed from 100%
organically grown bamboo. Each board is hand finished with natural,
food-safe oil. Bambu thoroughly believes in chopping food, not trees.
The contemporary designs look great and are designed to perform up to
almost any task.
The team that hand produces Bambu's cutting and serving boards are
organized as a collective, which means they have a voice in setting
price and compensation. Each of the boards are hand shaped and finished.
Marrying modern designs and colors with traditional bamboo
craftsmanship, the bambu lacquerware collection is an innovative and
contemporary range of bowls, plates and other tabletop items. Each
piece is hand coiled, shaped and finished with food-safe natural
lacquer creating a beautiful, durable waterproof finish accented in
modern colors. Bambu's own unique color palette in matte finish is a
natural lacquer that creates durable, waterproof dishware. All
Lacquerware is food-safe and suitable for all hot and cold foods. This
collection of dishware cleans easily with warm soapy water.
Each bowl is hand coiled with small strips of bamboo by families in
rural villages to help supplement farming income. The skill of coiling
and carving bamboo bowls is a centuries-old craft unique to Vietnam.
Next, the bowls are shaped by hand and then applied with the natural
food safe lacquer derived from the cashew nut tree.

More about Bambu® brand
How it all started
We have always had an appreciation and a concern for the natural
environment. We became inspired by bamboo, a remarkably renewable
resource, and water to share that with others. We left out careers, we
moved to China, and set out to build something exceptional; to create
unique and well designed products for the home, made from renewable
Thank you for showing care for the environment.
Rachel & Jeff
Bambu is a renewable ideas company.
We exist to create interest and excitement around renewable
materials and sustainable practices; we do that with original design,
innovation and imagination.
We are not a bamboo company. We are simply inspired by a marvelous material that is the foundation of our company.
We are building interest and appeal in renewable materials
through our original designs and material innovations, and through our
own imaginations. We strive to lessen the impact we place on the
planet's limited natural resources. And take a socially responsible
approach to our products, processes and practices.
Three years ago, we spearheaded a project to certify the source of
our bamboo. Working closely with IMO Switzerland, bambu is the first
and only company to be recognized with Organic Certification. Customers
have complete assurance that the bamboo we use is sustainably grown and
harvested and free of pesticides and fertilizers.
The bamboo used to make our All Occasion Veneerware® and Natural
Utensils is Certified Organic. Our packaging is all environmentally
friendly. The paper we use for our packaging is made from FSC-certified
sources or is made from 100% post-consumer recycled fibers. Our
shipping cartons are made from recycled fiber and all of our packaging
materials are recyclable. We're expanding the use of soy-based inks
across all of our printing. Bambu is leading the use of these materials
with printers and paper suppliers in China.
Bambu supports fair trade practices.
Our manufacturing partners must meet our requirements for quality
craftsmanship, environmental protection, and acceptable labor
practices. Independent auditing firms inspect our manufacturers for
worker health and safety and for environmental protection.
We have been granted the Co-Op America Seal of Approval for the
commitments Bambu has made toward fair treatment of workers, promoting
healthy communities, preserving the environment and providing quality
A job well done. A basket weaver from Northern Vietnam, a carpenter
from rural China, or our production team in Shanghai all shares a sense
of pride in producing our products, and producing them well. You can
appreciate the pride in the craftsmanship of our coiled bowls, or the
finish of our cutting boards, or the attention to detail in the design
of our kitchen tools.
'Proudly made' also conveys how we do
business and reflects the spirit of our company and the values we live
by. Pride in giving back to the local community, pride in supporting
local artisans and small rural industry, and pride in using a renewable
and plentiful resource.
At the source.
We are regularly on site and in the villages where the craftspeople
work and live. This means we're accountable for the integrity of our
products and production processes. We couldn't be the type of company
we are if we were not at the source. We don't work with agents or
trading companies or middlemen; we never have, and we never will.
