With a short growth cycle and fast growth rate, it is the ideal environmentally sustainable natural material to work with today. In ancient China, it was also widely used. As one member of the bamboo family, Pleioblastus has an average height of 3-5 meters, diameter of 1.5-2cm and wall thickness of 6mm. Because of its toughness and acoustic characteristics, it has always been one of the most widely used materials for making flutes and other musical instruments.
    At first glance, it seems like wood. In fact, it has many of the same physical characteristics as other forms of timber, but it grows at a rate 3 times faster than other tress. It is the perfect substitute for timber, widely used for furniture and building materials.
    Combining firmness and flexibility, the process of softening bamboo skin requires the high-temperature steaming of hydrogen peroxide. It can be sliced in thicknesses of 0.3, 0.5, or 0.6. It can be divided into horizontal bamboo skin or vertical bamboo skin. It can also be selected for color, including carbonized, zebra and dyed color. It has excellent dexterity and shaping abilities, which can be used in a wide range of applications.
    After finishing, it can be as slender and rounded as a vine, or ribbon-like with pliability and flexibility. Different parts of bamboo exhibit different toughness and flexibility. After baking at high temperatures, the bamboo split is easy to shape. It is a very durable material and allows designers to explore a wide range of possibilities.
    Bamboo fibers are slender and soft, due to physical refining. The bamboo fiber is a natural material, and causes no harm to the human body. Natural, slender qualities are present.
    The process of producing bamboo paper pulp involves crushing bamboo, cooking it, washing it, and other steps. It can produce sheets of different thickness and can be dyed to varying degrees of color saturation.
    Bamboo paper made from pulp has excellent ink absorption and good toughness. The principle raw material is young tender Moso bamboo. Fuyang, a city in Zhejiang province, is the most famous place for bamboo paper. Bamboo paper manufacturing began in Fuyang during the Southern Song Dynasty, and has been passed down from generation to generation for more than a thousand years.
