Bamboo is an incredible resource, in the tropics it can grow to a height of 80 ft within a few years and as it grows so quickly it is very sustainable. The bamboo Stems are the part of the plant most commonly used but bamboo has a woody root which is soft, light and easy to carve and has a wonderful texture.
