What products are made from bamboo? It’s often one of the first questions people ask when they are starting to learn about this amazing plant. Auth'n usually answers with the rhetorical question: What products can be made from wood? Fact is, everything that can be made from wood can also be made with bamboo.

Everything in between is possible with bamboo!"
