What makes strandwoven bamboo flooring superior to other types of bamboo flooring? When it comes down to it, it’s all in the manufacturing process. While other types of bamboo flooring are formed by combining multiple wide bamboo species strips, strandwoven bamboo is made from the actual bamboo fibers. 

Instead of strips, bamboo used for strandwoven bamboo flooring is softened, then pulled apart to create the bamboo fiber strands. It is the Moso species of bamboo that is typically used for strandwoven flooring, which is considered to be the ideal species for this strandwoven product.
The Versatility of Strandwoven Bamboo Flooring
Bamboo is Strong:
One of the top advantages of using strandwoven bamboo flooring is its strength and durability. Not only is strandwoven bamboo the strongest type of bamboo flooring available on the market, it is also twice as strong as many hardwoods, such as oak or maple. Strandwoven bamboo’s incredible strength is what makes it extremely long-lasting and a perfect flooring option for busy households with floors that tend to see lots of action.

Bamboo is Eco-friendly:
Strandwoven bamboo is also incredibly environmentally friendly. Even though regular bamboo flooring uses highly renewable bamboo, it is only the strandwoven bamboo method that creates the least amount of waste. In fact, it is the most earth-friendly of the bamboo floorings, since strandwoven utilizes any excess bamboo material which is typically thrown away by other bamboo flooring methods.

Bamboo is Moisture Resistant:
Compared to other bamboo type flooring, strandwoven bamboo flooring is more moisture resistant. What does this mean for homeowners who opt for strandwoven? It means that your floor’s lifespan can last much longer, making it an altogether superior investment for your house in the long run.

Have you fallen in love with strandwoven bamboo yet? It’s no wonder strandwoven bamboo is an excellent flooring choice, not to mention that it looks gorgeous in any home! For more information on strandwoven bamboo, check out EcoFusion to find a retailer near you.

Portland residents celebrate! That iconic Portland sign at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall is now fully renovated and there’ll be a special re-lighting ceremony on August 16.  Read the story here: www.oregonlive.com by Olivia Dimmer

The Arlene Schnitzer Hall is part of the historic Paramount Theatre, which also houses the Portland Center for the Performing Arts, The Oregon Symphony, The Metropolitan Youth Symphony and the Portland Youth Philharmonic, as well as concert and film events.

Eco-friendly renovation is a priority for Portland residents, and EcoFusion gives a terrific option: Strandwoven bamboo.

Strandwoven bamboo has the same beautiful look of hardwood, but without the high price tag. It is available in various colors, and each plank has a different grain variation, so your floor will always be unique. It is versatile and looks as good in a modern loft-style home as it does in a contemporary kitchen, traditional living area, or in a vacation home, such as beach cottages or log cabins.  

Why is it so strong?  Unlike regular bamboo, which is cut into strips, Strandwoven bamboo is made by the fibers, which of course are first softened and then “woven.”  Because of this weaving, Strandwoven is several times stronger than other bamboo products.

It is made from the Moso species of bamboo, which is very renewable.  That in itself makes it environmentally-friendly, but there’s also less waste, because almost every bit of the bamboo is used in the manufacturing of the floor.

Want some interesting, fun decorating ideas with strandwoven bamboo

Jazz up your indoor stairs with some strandwoven bamboo and a tile backsplash.
Paint your kitchen cabinets to match your strandwoven bamboo floors. 
Pair it with white walls and furnishings to give an open, airy look.
Since bamboo looks exactly like hardwood, it can be paired with other hardwood, such as counters and cabinets. Use a hardwood that will provide a little contrast.

​A recent story in the Portland Tribune told us about Hazelnut Grove, a homeless village of tiny houses built in East Portland. What began as a homeless tent community became a “locked door” community. That’s not to say its homeownership, but it provides a sense of community, support and, most importantly, a place where one can sleep without fear of robbery, physical or sexual assault.

It’s really a story of hope and transformation, and how a step-by-step series can result in positive change. The story features one young man and his journey through the foster system, which began at age 9, and led to homelessness; he’s finally regaining his life.

If you really think about it, design and manufacturing are all about metamorphosis as well.

Take Strandwoven Bamboo; bamboo is gorgeous, and gives any living area a sense of richness that can only really be found in exotic woods. 

It’s also eco-friendly and sustainable, and that’s a big pro.

Bamboo can be weak, and that’s a big con.

So, it was only natural for the manufacturers to develop a way to make bamboo stronger: That resulted in Strandwoven bamboo; it’s ultra-strong (three times stronger than regular bamboo), is just as environmentally-friendly and renewable (in fact, it’s made from MOSO, a fast-growing, giant bamboo), and gives the consumer the ability to have it all, at least when it comes to flooring.

Here’s what makes Strandwoven bamboo such a great bamboo option: First, you need to know that bamboo is a grass, it’s not wood.  It grows really tall (you will never find it in a pot growing in anyone’s home or office), and it’s very fibrous. 

Once harvested, the bamboo is cut into strips and shredded into fiber strands. Then it’s “woven.” The way the fibers cross each other in the “weave” are what make Strandwoven bamboo so strong. Then, to make it even stronger, a resin is applied and the whole thing is compressed and put under some pretty intense pressure using cold press method.
