Bamboo grows very fast and can be used in many different ways (food, building materials, horticulture, consumer goods, musical instruments and for fiber production). The fibers are obtained from the stem. Because the outer layer of bamboo stems is very hard (so hard that the stems are even used as knife sharpening stones), this is more complex than other bast fibers. In textile fiber production, bamboo is used, among other things, for the production of viscose.
For Kianao textiles, only bamboo is used as a pure natural fiber.
