Bamboo Stories

My favorite part about bamboo are the stories related to it. One of my my friends is from Indonesia and he told me that as a kid he was told that a ghost is hiding into the hollow parts of the bamboo. This story is still frequently told and shaped in Indoensian culture. Another friend of mine is however amazed by its look, while another friend of mine is selling bamboo raw material for income.

With this section I am sharing various stories/interviews that point out the uniqueness around bamboo. Some of those have as well been published by the International Organization for Bamboo and Rattan (INBAR).
