Bamboo Stories

About our bamboo curtains: June 8, 2014 18:09

Bamboo curtains are commonly used to obscure and beautify what would otherwise be an open door. If you don’t require total privacy, and instead would appreciate some of the properties of a screen door, like free airflow while keeping bugs at bay, a bamboo curtain would be ideal.

Hang your new bamboo doorway beads in a door opening between two rooms and you will be able to enjoy the painted image from both sides. Buy one to hide your washer & dryer, or for decoration of an unsightly wall.

Remember, that you can see through all bamboo curtains if the area behind it is lighter. Once the area behind it is in the dark the bamboo curtain will be all you see. It’s one of the features that have made the bamboo curtain popular.

You may remember seeing bamboo bead curtains in Hawaii Five-O and other TV or movie productions because they have a “cool factor” that makes them easy on the eyes and adaptable to many decors. Many love our bead curtains because you no longer have to open and close a door. You simply walk through it! But, they’re not just great for doorways but also as window treatments. Decorating your home has never been easier, especially if you require something original for a kid’s room, meditation or yoga room, your massage or spa business, office, or just as a simple and quickly made partition or room divider.

Staying Warm With Bamboo Curtains January 6, 2014 11:07

Yes. Bamboo doorway curtains can keep you warm in the extreme cold that's currently bearing down on Chicago and  the Mid -Western region. First, and while this may be a little hard to do, go out and buy some young bamboo plants and start nurturing them for next winter. You'll need them. Then, look around to see if you can find any old bamboo curtains. Ask your neighbors if they have any. If it's too cold for that, wear a hat. Now, make a big fire of the old bamboo curtains. That should keep you warm while you look around on our site for any bamboo doorway hangings with beads painted in a nice, tropical motif. Maybe one with palm trees. Or a bit of Pacific ocean. Looking at a bamboo curtian already gives you that tropical feeling, and if it has a tropical motif, so much more. Also, the act of hanging a bamboo curtain keeps you warm. While it only takes a few minutes to pull one from the box and place the eyelets over a hook or nail above your doorway consider hooking and unhooking it repeatedly. They weigh around 7 Lbs, which makes for a nice exercise and the rustling of the bamboo beads makes for a peaceful sound. Once hanging, practice separating the loose hanging strands with both arms and walking through them. Turn around and repeat for 3 hours and you'll not only keep warm, you'll lose weight too. Even repeatedly ordering a bamboo curtain can be construed as an activity and as you know every activity generates body heat.

New Bamboo Curtains with Extra High Strand Count September 25, 2013 19:26

Extra strands on a bamboo curtain provide narrower gaps between the strands, thereby offering greater concealment, or coverage of your doorway, laundry room, or open closet space, giving you added privacy and keeping unsightly spaces out of sight. 

A Bamboo Shower Curtain Brings a Touch of Nature to Your Bathroom September 25, 2013 18:44

If you are looking for a fresh, new look for your bathroom, why not buy a bamboo bead curtain and turn it into an attractive and natural feel shower curtain without any effort. Bamboo has a lot to offer, and has an amazing presence that will be giving a sense of nature, calmness, and peace to your bathroom. Bamboo doorway curtains come in a variety of designs, from plain natural, to elaborately decorated. Bamboo curtains are made of stalks from a bamboo tree. Bamboo doorways open up a room up and bring a sense of nature that plastic jingly things on a string cannot.

Bamboo is a great material that has organic antibiotics in the fibers and for you that means that your curtains will not get too smelly too quickly. They are also fully decomposable, whenever it comes time to switch shower curtains again, you will not be putting something in a land fill that will be there forever. This just furthers the many different ways that the bamboo plant is eco-friendly. A bamboo shower curtain that is made from bamboo is a good way to make a green contribution to the economy.

Bamboo happens to be absorbent, so you will want to put a plastic curtain in between the shower and your curtain. We suggest simple shower liner if you are on a budget or you can go for an altogether different look. However, since bamboo strands are somewhat transparent you will want to keep in mind that simpler will look better.
