About Bamboo

Bamboo is renowned for its durability and strength, and is the strongest growing woody plant on earth. These qualities are displayed in some Asian countries where they even use Bamboo in construction, using it for scaffolding. In such places as Hong Kong you can see bamboo towering the side to the very tops of some of the world's highest skyscraper.But its also its natural beauty that has earned its place in the art of creating some of the worlds most beautiful handmade homewares and furniture.Bamboo, a plant of the family Gramineae, is the longest grass in the world. The length can vary, and some bamboo plants are as short as 30 centimetres, while giant timber bamboo can grow to a height of over 40 metres or 100 feet.
It consists of a hollow culms or stem, with nodes or joints between segments of the stem, and oval leaves. The culms, branches and leaves stay green throughout the bamboo's life, even during winter.
The bamboo's lifespan is not very long - only about 20 years. Interestingly, all the bamboo of a particular species will flower at exactly the same time, regardless of their geographical location.

Being a very versatile plant, bamboo grows in a lot of different climates - it can be found on all the continents except Antarctica. Moreover, it is incredibly flexible; it will bend in strong winds, but it rarely breaks. With a tensile strength superior to mild steel, and a weight-to-strength ratio better than graphite, bamboo is the strongest growing woody plant on Earth. A testament to its durability is the fact that a stand of bamboo plants near ground zero at Hiroshima in 1945 survived the atomic blast and sent up new shoots within days.

It is also perhaps the fastest growing plant with some varieties growing at the rate of 5 cm per hour or 1.5 metres a day.The bamboo plant has a wide variety of uses, ranging from being purely decorative to being an important source of fuel.

It is utilised as wood in construction work, furniture, utensils, fibre and paper. Bamboo charcoal makes a good fuel, and because it is three times as porous as wood, and releases more energy. In ancient Chinese culture it was believed that a gift of living bamboo brought good luck. Thus, a fairly recent use of the bamboo plant is as a popular Feng Shui gift.
Bamboo is a "Renewable" material. Its one of earth's fastest growing plants. Bamboo needs no replanting and grows without fertilizers .Bamboo is not a wood but a species of grass. There are more than 1000 species of bamboo in the world.
Since bamboo can be used for so many of the same uses that hardwoods can, it will end up saving many trees all over the world. For example, a 60 foot hardwood tree can take up to 60 years to replace. A 60 foot bamboo plant only takes around 60 days to replace! Therefore, it makes more sense to use bamboo for as much as possible, since it so much faster to grow and has so many uses. Bamboo is a common plant in many parts of the world, but it is one which most people don't give a second thought too. It is a vital plant to many country's economies and may even help save the environment as a replacement for the slower growing hardwoods.So, bamboo is:

  • The fastest growing plant on this planet
  • A critical element in the balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere
  • A viable replacement for wood
  • An enduring natural resource
  • Versatile with a short growth cycle
  • A critical element of the economy
  • An essential structural material in earthquake architecture
  • A renewable resource for agroforestry production.
  • A natural controllable barrier
  • An ancient medicine
  • Integrally involved in culture and the arts

 eco friendly*

A sixty-foot tree cut for market takes 60 years to replace. Meanwhile, a sixty-foot bamboo cut for market takes 59 days to replace* (*International Network for Bamboo and Rattan (INBAR)). Bamboo is officially recognized as the world's fastest growing plant and has a tensile strength comparable to steel. 

That is why we at mish mash are really trying to develop the Bamboo range of housewares and push to further develop into Bamboo furniture.  As not only is it very sustainable, extremely durable and strong, but it's look is fresh, distictive and ultra stylish.

*Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on earth. It is known to produce greater biomass and 30% more oxygen than a hardwood forest of comparable size, while improving watersheds, preventing erosion, restoring soil, providing sweet edible shoots and removing toxins from contaminated soil. Ecologists tout bamboo as a renewable source of food and building material. Many promote bamboo planting for erosion prevention, and even to reverse the effects of global warming.

*Bamboo helps reduce carbon dioxide gases blamed for global warming. Some bamboo sequesters up to 12 tons of carbon dioxide per hectare, which makes it a highly efficient plant, and conducive to fresh air. Bamboo can be selectively harvested annually and regenerates without replanting.

*Bamboo is a natural water control barrier. Because of its wide spread root system and large canopy, bamboo greatly reduces rain run off, prevents massive soil erosion and keeps twice as much water in a watershed. Bamboo helps mitigate water pollution due to its high nitrogen consumption, making it a solution for excess nutrient uptake of wastewater from manufacturing, livestock farming and sewage treatment.

*Bamboo can restore degraded lands. It is a pioneering plant and can be grown in soil damaged by overgrazing and poor agriculture. Proper harvesting does not kill the bamboo plant, so topsoil is held in place. Because of its dense litter on the forest floor it feeds topsoil, restoring healthy agricultural lands for generations to come.
