There is a new type of wooden blind available on the website, but guess what, it’s not wood… it’s technically grass! Bamboo is an evergreen perennial flowering plant with hollow stems, and while we’ve seen panda’s eating it, did you know it’s an amazing material which can be used to make home furnishings? We’ve recently unveiled our own collection of bamboo Venetian blinds – here’s all you need to know!
The advantages of bamboo blinds
There are some great benefits of using bamboo, from superior style to improved green credentials! Let’s start with the look.
Bamboo Venetian blinds create an elegant, modern feel in a space. Featuring a delicate textured appearance, the bamboo slats will add a natural twist to your decor. Moreover, as a Venetian blind, they are easy to clean with a quick dust rejuvenating their sophisticated style.
Environmentally, bamboo is an excellent choice for making a range of things from wooden blinds to even socks! When compared to the same mass of trees, bamboo produces 35% more oxygen and studies have shown it can absorb as much as 12 tonnes of carbon dioxide per hectare per year!
Bamboo also grows at a very rapid rate – sometimes up to 90cm per day. For bamboo to grow to its full maturity, it only takes one to five years and then regrows from its own root system, it doesn’t need to be planted again! With many trees taking decades to grow, bamboo is a more sustainable crop which is perfect for sustainability minded decorators.
