Furniture from the Colonies

In all the cultures it is present, the bamboo has only favourable meanings. In Japan, along with the pine and plum tree, bamboo is one of the three good omen plants. To Indians, is a symbol of friendship. Its long life cycle made Chinese people to consider bamboo a symbol of longevity. Also in China, together with the plum tree, orchids and chrysantemum, the bamboo is one of the “four noble plants”. According to Confucius’ learnings, “each of them symbolizes a positive essential trait”.

Even today, Andaman Island’s people are convinced that mankind has been born in a bamboo trunk.

  1. Hi, Lauerntiu!

    I’m writing in English because you choose to do so here.

    Say: who’s colonies? This is flat-out hillarious! Romanians bragging about colonies… It’s killing me! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ Look where snobbism has got us to ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Good question, Eros! I guess, it would’ve been more appropriate to say “Furniture from the (former) colonies”, as the countries the bamboo is coming from have no longer this status.

    Yes, the furniture (all the way from sketches to manufacturing) is made in a small factory in Bucharest, while the raw materials (e.g. bamboo) is brought from India. As far as I know they are the only ones in Romania doing this, while all the others are just importing the bamboo furniture and reselling it.

    As for the snobbism, well… just one thing: friends know why! ๐Ÿ˜‰
