The Color of Bamboo. Totally Bamboo offers Bamboo in two colors: light, which is the natural color of the Bamboo, and dark, which is a honey color. The dark color is achieved by steaming the Bamboo to bring out the natural sugars and caramelize it. This color is permanent and will not fade or wash out.
The Grain of Bamboo. There are three types: vertical, flat and end grain. Vertical grain, approximately 1/4" wide, is taken from the side of the split pole. Flat grain, approximately 5/8" wide, is from the face of the pole. End grain is the cross section of the pole.
