BamStar Bamboo Flooring, a product of ELLIS USA, has been involved in hardwood lumber manufacturing and export business for over 30 years, shipping worldwide from facilities in the USA and Europe. For the past 7 years, BamStar has been manufacturing high quality flooring in Europe and with our partners in China.
The bamboo used for BamStar’s FLOORING is Moso (Phylloystachus Pubescens)or Mao Zhu (“hairy”) Bamboo, grown in selected areas by independent farmers in Zhejiang, Anhui and Fujian Provinces in China. Of the numerous species of bamboo grown worldwide, this is the only specie stable enough to produce BamStar’s bamboo products. The bamboo used by BamStar is harvested at about 5 years of age to ensure mature growth, consistent color and hardness. This is the ideal age for harvesting, with the remaining roots re-growing in order to be re-harvested in a future growth cycle. Since Bamboo is a grass and not a tree, it is classified as a sustainable and renewable resource being environmentally friendly.
BamStar is widely recognized as being one of the leaders in the bamboo flooring industry, offering one of the best (if not THE BEST) qualities of bamboo flooring products, as well as the largest range of bamboo flooring, bamboo panels and veneer, and bamboo accessories (moldings, stair-treads, vents) on the market, all at very competitive prices.
