Our natural Bamboo wood veneers are known for their characteristic color and graining, with the recognizable knuckles at the growth joints. Dura Supreme's Bamboo veneers are sliced to feature a straight, narrow-stave grain pattern and are steamed to create a warm brown color (caramelized). The steaming process naturally darkens the sugar compounds present in the plant to create a warm brown color without the use of dyes or stains. Bamboo is an extremely fast-growing grass, reaching maturity in 5-7 years for sustainable harvesting. Considered a rapidly renewable resource, Bamboo stalks regenerate from the same root system within 3-7 years. During regeneration, the root system remains intact preventing soil erosion. Bamboo is an extremely stable, dense, and strong material that remains very color stable with age and sunlight exposure.
