The Wood Hut
Handcrafted Wooden Rings
Bamboo - is it wood or prehistoric giant grass?
Bamboo looks like wood, feels like wood and even smells like wood.
Technically speaking bamboo, or Bambusoideae to be really scientific, is a member of the grass family. Bamboo is hollow on the inside and can grow an astonishing 36 inches in just 24 hours, making it one of the fastest growing plants in the world.
One thing is for sure it is certainly one of the toughest and most flexible construction materials ever utilised by man.
The bamboo ring featured was a bit of an experiment just to see how easy or difficult it would be to work with and ultimately to find out if it would lend itself to becoming a ring suitable to wear.
Well the end result took me completely by surprise and I have totally fallen for the fantastic speckled grain colour and overall tactile feel of the ring.
Needless to say I am excited to be able to add this beautiful bamboo ring design to our single woods ring category and given its sheer abundance, Bamboo gets a prime spot in our eco responsible section.
