The color of a bamboo pole depends on the type of bamboo. Moso and Tonkin are types of bamboo with the beautiful natural hue of yellows, tans, and beige patinas. Our black bamboo poles come from the beautiful black cane bamboo. It is a blend of black, dark tan, and dark green for a earthy look. Both colors are a neutral color that will be a beautiful backdrop for most designs.
Bamboo poles also come in various widths and lengths. The width of the pole can change the feel of the room. Bamboo pole lengths can range from 5 feet to 10 feet. Some poles come split in the middle which is perfect for certain types of projects. It may be easier to add half bamboo poles to walls or flat surfaces.
