In some countries this is even recommended by health authorities.</p> <h2>Environmentally responsible</h2> <p>Bamboo grows very quickly and abundantly in our local tropical environment. We harvest only selected fully grown poles of specific species, and we do not harvest in the rainy season when new bamboo sprouts emerge from the ground.</p> <h3>Plastic free<br /> Due to bamboo's fast growth and abundant presence, its use for the manufacture of our parasols and umbrellas is per definition environmentally responsible: our bamboo replenishes quickly, there is no depletion of raw materials, no pollution, the products are natural and they are easily biodegradable. This cannot be said of hardwood, steel, nylon and most plastic products.</h3> <h3>No laminates<br /> We do not use laminates. No industrial crushing, adhesive and high pressure processes take place. We have developed a sustainable process to protect bamboo from insects and fungus in a natural way.</h3> <h3>Soft wood<br /> Our parasols and umbrellas use some small wooden parts. These are the top, ferrule, runner and handle. These are made from local rural softwood. This fast-growing wood does not come from forests or rainforest.</h3> <h2>Individual initiative</h2> <p>Given the current issues surrounding carbon dioxide, nitrogen, PFAS and disposed plastic, it is time for not only government policy, but also a personal approach to combat climate change and environmental pollution. Here, every single individual measure counts, no matter how big or small.</p> <h3>More bamboo<br /> That is precisely why we make our bamboo products, and why we argue for a larger share of bamboo products in the parasol and umbrella market. Get rid of polluting plastic and unstable metal ribs for parasols and umbrellas that don't even survive a gust of wind.</h3> <h2>Product overview</h2> <p>The overview here shows the main models of our standard production. For further details, also check our Facebook page with a link to our English (and Thai) website.</p> <h3>No virtual mega markets<br /> We are not present on virtual marketplaces such as Amazino, Alibarbex or Vetsie. These often increase costs - for everyone. Our own internet presence is quite effective. Plus, old-fashioned or not, we like to get to know our customers.</h3> <h3>On order<br /> We produce to order. We do produce on continuous basis, with an extensive stock of components to produce various orders directly and quickly. This helps us to produce efficiently with low costs.</h3> <h2>Market-oriented</h2> <h3>Low MOQ<br /> As a small manufacturer, we offer wholesale prices with low minimum order quantity. Our bamboo hand umbrellas are affordable and solid, with an attractive appearance. Bamboo garden and patio umbrellas do not have to cost a thousand euros.</h3> <h3>SMEs<br /> Our market generally consists of retailers, hotels, cafes, restaurants, event organizers, existing companies and start-ups. And the consumer, if our products are not available locally.</h3> <h2>Experience</h2> <p>Our workshop and our export sponsor JEDI International, Ltd. have more than 15 years of experience in the development, production and export of bamboo parasols and umbrellas for the English-speaking market, worldwide. In addition to our own items, we also produce for a number of high-quality brand names.</p> <h3>Socially friendly - fair trade<br /> We follow the guidelines of the fair trade organisation WFTO. We do not strive for a certificate; the administrative requirements are not realistic for an independent,  small-scale, artisan manufacturer.</h3> <h2>Sales outlets</h2> <p>We are seeking to expand our representation at independent sales outlets in Europe and the UK.</p> <ul><li>When desired, we list your point of sale of our products on this website and social media.</li> <li>We handle consumer requests if the requested products are not available locally.</li> </ul><h2>Questions or wish to order?</h2> <p><a href="/contact">Contact us</a>. We reply the same or the next work day.</p> <p><em>Photo credit<br /> Banner photo "Bamboo parasol frames drying in the Thai sun" is creatively owned by Parasol Paradise™<em>.</em></em></p> <p><em>Updated 18 September, 2020.</em></p> <p><em>&gt; <a href="">facebook</a> &gt; <a href="">instagram</a></em></p></div> Tue, 11 Aug 2020 07:53:30 +0000 webmaster 1 at
