Facts on Bamboo used in manufacturing.
Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants in the world and it has the capacity to readily replenish itself after reaping, provided that it is properly harvested.
Bamboo is also valuable environmentally because of its high leaf surface area. This makes it a very efficient agent in the removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and generating oxygen in its place.
Bamboo has a very high tensile strength and once properly cured and treated is very durable.
OBF uses the Bambusa Vulgaris variety to make our furniture. It is the most abundant variety that grows in many areas of Jamaica and its use for the manufacture of furniture contributes to the rural economy of the island.
