Used in Hong Kong for decades as a scaffolding material, the “king of grass” grows quickly, releases plenty of oxygen into our atmosphere and can be used to produce light, strong and beautiful items. In short, it’s a super-green raw material! Here’s where you can get your fix.


Located in PMQ, Bamboa’s founder Julia Washbourne was inspired by the use of sky-high bamboo scaffoldings in Hong Kong. Fascinated with the seemingly endless possibilities of the plant, she saw it as the perfect tool for creating eco-friendly furniture. All products are made from locally harvested bamboo and range from tableware to fabric.

It might surprise you to learn that bamboo fiber is an ultra-soft, luxurious and breathable fabric that is perfect for baby clothes. If you want to give it a whirl for your bubs, Nuumi sells super comfortable baby clothing and linens all produced from bamboo—think sleeping bags, rompers, hats, towels and more. For grown-ups, you can purchase bamboo fiber bed linens and towels.
