Just when you thought the uses for bamboo couldn’t be extended much further, along comes the bamboo briefcase! Eye catching, and beautifully produced to a very high-quality of finish, Moso Bamboo Surfaces' briefcase is built in the traditional briefcase shape and contains an attractively finished leather interior with all the usual briefcase compartments. Documents can be kept secure with a locking system, and its light weight means you won’t have to strain your arms to carry it.
The briefcase is a little apart from our standard range of products - flooring, work surfaces and outdoor decking, but the consumer appetite for bamboo seems to be growing all the time! Our customer response to the briefcase has already been tremendous and this definately won't be the last of the innovative bamboo products that we're hoping to add to our ever-growing bamboo range.
Christmas will be upon us in no time, and this briefcase might just be the ideal solution for that usually difficult question of what to buy for the men in the family. A unique gift that’s also sure to be a great talking point.
Briefcases are available from Moso Bamboo Surfaces, and will very soon be available to order direct from our website. Retail price is £139.
The uses for Moso bamboo is increasing all the time! The latest being Quarterre's bamboo bike racks. Production Manager Christopher Pett at Makers Co has used Moso bamboo many times before, and when the brief came in for a material that was light and yet incredibly strong, Moso bamboo was the natural choice. "We were looking at building the racks out of Birch ply, but it was too heavy, expensive, wobbly, and didn't provide the strength or finish that Moso bamboo does" says Christopher. "Using bamboo we could get away with a thinner panel that was still really strong, so it was for technical as well as aesthetic reasons that we chose Moso Bamboo."
Happily for the team at Moso Bamboo surfaces, Christopher says he has tried various other bamboo companies but none of them have been able to deliver the quality that he says he gets with Moso Bamboo. The bike racks have proved to be a huge hit with sales coming in from around the world - Australia, USA, Europe as well as at home in the UK, and have even been featured in Wallpaper magazine. The team are now entering their third cycle of production.
Have a look at the bike racks by clicking on the hyperlink or going to www.quarterre.com and searching for the product 'branchline'. Production is managed by http/makersco.com

A Sussex Carpenter has selected Bamboo Forest flooring as the finishing touch to his beautiful shepherd hut. Carsten Harud, a talented furniture designer, decided to turn his hand to the construction of a shepherd hut – from scratch! And when it came to the selection of the floor, Bamboo Forest was the obvious choice: “I wanted the floor to look high quality but rustic, in keeping with the rest of the hut.” says Carsten. “The hut is meant for use as a little retreat in a garden or suchlike, and Forest Flooring felt in keeping with the hut’s surroundings.”
Bamboo Forest is the most authentic bamboo floor on the market and unique to us. Here the bamboo stem or pole is flattened with a special process to create a 3 layer engineered board made using only the outer skin or bark of the plant. The result is a very robust board with the natural beauty of the bamboo plant. The rings on the trunk are visible in the shape of nodes (on the full width of the board) and even the markings which have been made by the farmers can be seen in some boards.
Carsten’s hut is currently for sale and further information can be found on his website: http://www.nightingaleshepherdhuts.com/
Moso are pleased to be working with RASKL Designs, who have selected our bamboo for use in the joists they make for Sunbeam Jackie's beautiful and original parasols. Now we just need the sun to come out!

After years of preparation, Moso have just launched a self-sticking version of Unibamboo. Instead of the latex backing (current version) this new version has a PVC backing. The glue is applied onto the PVC and is protected by a sheet of paper, when ready to install simply peel back the paper and simply apply to the subfloor, it couldn’t be easier. Much less work, time and cost! Perfectly suitd to all markets but ideal for DIY!

Moso brings the forest to your floor. Instead of cutting the bamboo pole into strips and pressing them together into a floor board, the whole trunk is being used. The wall of the trunk is flattened with a special process and it serves as the top layer of a 3 ply board.
The result is a very robust yet naturally beautiful bamboo floor board. With the rock hard bark of the bamboo no additional finish is needed, a wax finish could be considered if you wanted to close the gaps between the floor boards. This product really does bring nature to your home or business!
Moso started the production of 3100mm (10 ft) veneers. The initial lead times were quite long but a few changes have been made to production and the whole process should be much quicker now. The side pressed veneer is now running and selling well and once a new slicing machine arrives in the next few weeks, the yields of the plain pressed will increase too.
Moso now supply FSC certified bamboo. However there is still a limited availability of FSC raw material, which makes the material more expensive than the normal bamboo veneer. The good news is that the availability is slowly improving though!
