Reading Time: 1 minute

Tiger Stripe Bamboo Flooring

Tiger stripe bamboo flooring is made by paring two color treatments of bamboo – natural and carbonized – and literally weaving them together, then pressing them into a two-toned floor board with a light and dark “tiger stripe” pattern.

It is with tremendous effort that I have refrained from using the word grrrrrrEAT! in the title of this blog post.  I am a sucker for a bad pun and pop culture reference all in one (hint to the non-generation X among you: this is Tony the Tiger‘s catchphrase for his favorite breakfast cereal as featured on TV commercials since the 50s …).

But in any case, I thought I’d talk a bit about tiger strand-woven floors because they are kind of great.  They provide a wild, random, bold and vibrant look to a space.  And the process by which they are made is a perfect model for sustainable flooring.

Bamboo flooring is known to be a ‘green floor’ for many reasons.  And tiger strand-woven adds to the list of reasons to support this position, given that there is almost zero-wastage involved in its manufacturing process.

Given that we’re going into a decade where sustainable building materials are likely to become more and more sought after than ever before, tiger strand-woven may be a potential superstar.

Grrrrrrr-EAT!

(Sorry, couldn’t help myself…)
