The colors of MOSO® Bamboo Products
Bamboo’s original, natural color is light brown with a yellowish tint. By treating bamboo with steam, the light brown color becomes more intense and the yellow shade disappears, we call this Ecru. By increasing the temperature and pressure during the steam treatment, the durability and stability is enhanced and a warm brown color appears, this is called Caramel. The color Tiger was specially developed for panel materials: a mix of light and dark strips. By finishing with a stain lacquer or oil, even more bamboo product colors can be created. Ecru and Caramel products are only suitable for indoor use when further treatment is not undergone. Particularly in the case of outdoor products, the treatment is done at higher temperatures and with more pressure, which makes the bamboo dark brown, we call this color Chocolate.
