At the heart of the Bambu design process is an underlying philosophy to preserve the simplicity of a raw material while shaping it in a way that makes it classically modern.The Portland-born company is inspired by the uncomplicated beauty of the natural materials it works with, and it crafts each piece in a way that supports sustainable business practices. Each elegant and useful Bambu home product is proudly made in China, (bamboo’s native environment!) where the company brought a little bit of Portland to a place that is often criticized for its manufacturing processes. Working with a small production team, materials are sourced locally and crafted by artisans to create beautiful bamboo home goods. For Bambu sustainability goes well beyond the balance between what we take from the earth and what we return to it, it's a philosophy that applies to how they conduct their lives and their business. They are commited to 3rd-party certification, promoting fair labor practices and safe working conditions, and to a green supply chain. They are certified USDA Organicand have acheived a GOLD rating from Green America Certified Business, their highest standard.
