If you check out Sangaru's website and click on the "Crafts" section, you will discover some really cool stuff made from bamboo. Somehow it seems more cool that Indian designers are using bamboo than other people, but I can't quite put my finger on why I think that's cool. Maybe it's the idea of rural tools being used in a less traditional but also post-modern fashion? For example, check out these cool shelving things. They are not traditional, and not what I would call "modern" in the sense of the post 1950s meaning. I think my verbal diarrhea is getting the better of me. Let these photos speak instead!
