"Alvaro has been familiar with it since his earliest childhood and interprets it perfectly. He always uses just the right piece of bamboo for the right product. This results in happy spoons."


Franco Clivio


A member of the grass family Poaceae, bamboo is flexible, resistant, and durable, besides being beautiful, malleable, and very gentle to touch. It has sections, nodes, walls, dark fibers, a lacquered bark. There are hundreds of bamboo types, including one with a black bark that I am starting to use. I look to get bamboo as a gift. Any kind of bamboo. Ideally, in the Southern Hemisphere, it should be harvested during a new moon in the months without “R.” My acquaintance with bamboo goes back to childhood, when boys used to make kites, birdcages, and their own fishing rods out of it.
