More Beautiful Bamboo

minitempo_col.jpg Bamboo is a favourite topic for treehugger and for good reason: it’s environmental, grows twice as fast as wood, prevents soil erosion and can be harvested continuously without killing the plant. These bright looking home accessories combine modern forms, stylish colours and perfect finishes that are equal to anything in the shops. The platters, along with more bowls, trays, vases and containers are produced by a French company working closely with local craftsmen in Viet Nam and Brazil. They approach their work with a sincere desire to create jobs in rural areas and make use of long-standing artisanal skills in a new, more modern way. It is the essence of eco-chic: appeal to consumers by producing items that are fashionable, functional, and environmentally beneficial. :: ekobo via :: esprit Equo
