bamb-u, Is Australia’s first and only all bamboo manufacturer of bamboo watches and sunglasses.
Our aim is to ethically make, premium quality, sustainable products that will turn heads, while give something back at the same time. That’s why, with every product sold, we plant 7 trees in countries affected by deforestation. For more information about our planting program please click here.
Secure payment gateway, when you buy from our online store, you can buy with confidence as our payment gateway is secured by up to date security through Godaddy’s Verified & Secure payment portal.
Our watches and sunglasses are made from sustainably farmed, premium A-grade bamboo and have high quality components, including: Japanese made, Citizen Miyota movements, TAC UV400 polarised lenses, stainless steel clasps, hinges, screws and link pins and come with free shipping. We have a dedicated team of highly skilled craftsmen to manufacture our products.
Why did we choose bamboo and not wood to make our products? While we think wooden products look beautiful, the sustainability of wooden products was too questionable for us. The types of timbers used in the production of many wooden watches and sunglasses are on endangered and or black lists. So for us it was an ethical choice. Not to mention that bamboo is such an awesome product.
Benefits of bamboo:
Bamboo needs little to no water to grow. There is no need for the use of fertilisers or pesticides. Bamboo regenerates it’s self after being harvested and grows to full size within 4 years, not 40 years like most hardwoods. Bamboo is very durable and lightweight which makes our products extra comfortable. By using bamboo, we are helping communities that have otherwise failed crops make a proper living by farming bamboo.
Our customer demographic is a very even split of guys and girls, as many of our products are unisex. The top countries where people are buying bamb-u are: The United States, Australia, The United Kingdom, New Zealand and Canada.
