ARTISAN PRODUCTION CYCLE
Ecological and Sustainable
Italian parquet workshops offers a valid ecological alternative to traditional flooring. Our raw material grows only in controlled and FSC® certified forests which establishes the rules for proper forest management, in order to protect the environment of wildlife, local populations and workers.
Specifically, our bamboo is therefore an ecological and sustainable product harvested only in highly controlled forests.
Depending on the type of bamboo flooring to be obtained, the manufacturing process varies, however the initial phase is identical for all of them: it is the internal and external decortication of the bamboo stems, through the reduction into rods, which will come later. assembled in a different way, according to the parquet you want to obtain.
The way to obtain the typology with Wide Knot e Tight knot it is similar: some external and internal millimeters are eliminated from the rods and only the central part is used, only in this way can the gluing between them be perfect.
