Plyboo

These days, anything made of bamboo is hot. The eco-friendly alternative is being used to make everything from furniture to clothing. What makes Plyboo stand out from other flooring companies are their amber colored pieces -- they aren't stained! Smith & Fong simply heat the bamboo, and its natural sugars caramelize to transform the Plyboo into a deeper, richer colour naturally.

The San Francisco-based company is channeling the new movement in environmental demands, but their innovations don't stop at Plyboo -- they also have Durapalm, a coconut-palm timber from Southeast Asia which is processed in a similar way.
