Selecting Verdura bamboo flooring will help sustain a greener planet. Traditional timber flooring is made from trees that take forty to sixty years to grow, in old growth forests and rainforests. Verdura bamboo flooring is made from bamboo poles selected when matured after only four to five years. These bamboo poles are from our sustainable and carefully managed forests. Verdura selects only the highest grade bamboo and uses market leading technology to create floors of outstanding quality.
