Bambooya founder Katie Gerdts Schroeder lived in Tokyo for seven years, where she grew bamboo in her small garden. She was impressed by the variety of bamboo-made products in Japan, and when she returned to the US and opened Bambooya, she made it her mission to sell textiles made from organic bamboo fabrics and yarns. Here's a small selection of what's available in her online shop:
One final note: Pandas (like the one shown in the photo above) pop up across the Bambooya webshop, which sells panda-logo bibs, clothes, and blankets, as well as some very cute panda puppets ($6.50 each).
