Everything about bamboo – Sampoorna bamboo kendra


Bamboo has traditionally been used for centuries as a building and engineering material and in everyday items in various parts of the world and in India.  Traditional artisans have recognized its benefits for centuries, yet the modern world of engineers, architects and designers has failed to leverage this amazing natural resource to the extent that it was once used. Commonly mistaken for being a wood, it is actually a grass and has a set of features that make it tremendously beneficial to use as an engineering material in the modern context.
India has the 2nd largest amount of natural bamboo in the world.
hence this plentiful supply of bamboo in India helps to keep price down compared to other materials.
