The iconic Bamboo collection is a perfect match between a cotton flower front and arms made from real bamboo. The arms of these hard-wearing, flexible and sophisticated frames are made from the main stem of the bamboo plant, known as the culm or cane and feature the unique joints or nodes that separate the plant’s different segments. Hypoallergenic and rigid, all our creations are extremely lightweight and require no maintenance.
