African Bamboo is a premium Tropical Bamboo products manufacturer. Registered in Ethiopia and the Netherlands since 2012, the company is founded on a wholly sustainable business model. We manage an integrated supply chain developed on a socially inclusive forestry management plan in cooperation with local communities primarily using natural forests. Our manufacturing facility operates off-grid with zero residual waste. Our flagship product is also highly engineered, in cooperation with a leading German wood technology institute. We’ve optimized material consumption to produce an 82.5% natural bamboo fiber composite panel using Ethiopian highland bamboo. Its exceptional characteristics make our products extremely durable, steel-strong and unique. All processes have been designed to meet the most stringent efficiency, safety and environmental standards. African Bamboo is the first company to create decking, flooring and building materials from one of Africa’s most versatile and abundant natural resources: tropical bamboo. The natural characteristics of Ethiopia’s highland Alpina bamboo, responsible supply chain management and state-of-the-art engineering has come together to form luxurious and sustainable options for natural wood enthusiasts. An interdisciplinary team of engineers, business people and scientists, we have dedicated years to create value at each step in the process.
