from bamboo plant to product
Transforming a hollow bamboo stem into a high quality MOSO® product -
how is it done?
With nearly 20 years of experience in the bamboo industry,
MOSO manages the production process to perfection.
stem to strip
After four to five years, bamboo stems are ready for harvest. Tropical hardwoods take many many years to reach maturity, making bamboo a far better ecological choice. After harvesting, the bamboo stems are split lengthwise into strips, and the outer skin (bark) is removed. By nature, the strips are a light yellow color, but can they be steamed to a light brown color (caramel) if desired.
assembly of strips
After drying, strips are assembled in many different ways, producing end products with various looks.
Plain Pressed (PP)
Bamboo strips are positioned horizontally and glued together. This creates an elegant line pattern with the characteristic bamboo nodes clearly visible.
Side Pressed (SP)
Bamboo strips are positioned vertically and glued together. This creates a narrow line pattern with the bamboo nodes visible in a subtle way.
