For over two decades, we’ve been transforming bamboo fiber into decorative and structural building materials that meet the stringent demands of the construction industry. Through our sister company, Bamboo Living, we were the first company to obtain ICC certification for the structural use of bamboo in manufacturing homes and buildings.
Our manufacturing and engineering expertise comes from decades of material science and processing research. We pressure treat our bamboo fibers with an infusion of clean mineral salts to eliminate insect and mold infiltration. Tested and verified by Washington State University, this pre-processing prior to drying and manufacturing ensures that Rizome bamboo products are as durable as traditional wood products.
Our first manufacturing facility is located in the Philippines where we provide the local population with a sustainable income.
Our goal is to have planted 10 million bamboo clumps by 2030 for a 10-year carbon drawdown of over 26 million tonnes of CO2, the equivalent of the greenhouse gas emissions generated 5,654,478 cars driven during a single year.
