o 100% Renewable resource, the millennium's new "wood"
o Bamboo is harder and denser than most hard woods, it is16% harder than maple, which is the most common wood used for most cutting boards.
o After harvesting, bamboo grows back and can be re-harvested every 4 ½ years. Bamboo does not need re-planting. Most hardwood have a 30 to 60 year growth cycle.
o We use only premium grade bamboo and then, only the lower portion of each pole because it is much denser.
o Our factory adheres to a very stringent protocol, for curing and processing, resulting in the highest quality product attainable.
o Our factory is ISO 9000 compliant which is a rating system covering non-polluting environmental issues and employee welfare , safety and minimum age. Many large corporations require this.
o Our goal is to continually design new, unique and innovative products.
o Creating and maintaining the leadership role in this exciting new category.
o As we design all our own products we have the ability to develop brand names and/or custom designs for the larger client.
o Highly skilled craftsmen.
o Progressive engineering, such as our Hawaiian Collection featuring opposing grain end caps. This reduces the chance of warping, stabilizing the boards for years of use.
o Our boards are thoroughly fine sanded resulting in a silky smooth touch.
o Bamboo is a notoriously difficult material to glue. Most bamboo is glued with a formaldehyde glue. We had a chemist develop a high grade, non-toxic formaldehyde free food grade glue.
