Really Random question but does anybody know anything about the bamboo industry in Taiwan? If you could suggest, recommend or put me in touch with any suppliers, producers or people/company’s that manufacture goods from bamboo that would be much appreciated! Right now I know and have nothing so no info is trivial as it could be the the first step in the right direction…Thanks firstname.lastname@example.org
Try Bamboola? They are located in Zhushan (Bamboo Mountain…) in Nantou County.
What about in Taipei? I kinda don’t have the time to get to nantou…
most bamboos are harvested in Hsinchu, Miaoli, Nantou and Jiayi county. Usually they do first step processing about 1 hour away from the site.
A quick search still yields some results though.
There are 3 places that at least used to sell bamboos:
Mr. Zhang (張先生)
TEL: 02 2285 1532
There’s a non Taipei store that will deliver for you
Mr Wu (吳萬傳)
Delivery Guy also Mr. Wu (吳政展)
I did not verify what I found online…
What angle are you coming at it, what do you want to sell and where, PM me. I
If I’m working with bamboo to build a shelter or platform, is there a certain species I should be using?
I still see bamboo scaffolding around here on smaller buildings. Maybe that’s what I need.
Not sure if I should be sourcing locally (Hualien) or travelling to Nantou.
Also, anyone know how long untreated bamboo takes to rot, thinking dry (Taidong) vs wet (Hualien mountain) climate.
