The first bamboo curtains and drapers for home are here
By John Bauld, BBC NewsThe first bamboo curtain and drapeers for a home were unveiled at a ceremony in China on Thursday.
It’s not clear if the first two are being manufactured in China or at a plant in Japan, but the two were unveiled as part of a campaign by China’s National Center for Industrial Technology.
It is the first time the curtain is being manufactured there.
The curtains and blankets were made from bamboo, a fibrous tree that can grow up to 20 feet tall.
They were designed for use by people who have been confined to their beds for long periods of time.
The design has been praised by Chinese scientists and is seen as a step towards a future in which homes and offices are built entirely of bamboo.
The BBC’s John Bald in Beijing says the design is designed to make a home a bit like a bamboo island.
The bamboo fabric has been cut from a wide variety of bamboo species including bamboo shoots, bamboo strips, bamboo branches, bamboo bark and bamboo leaves.
In its natural state it does not absorb moisture and, because of this, it can withstand high temperatures and extreme humidity conditions.
“It can be used for building, for furniture, for bedding and for storage,” said Zhu Yongqing, the head of the National Center of Industrial Technology’s bamboo technology research lab.
“The idea is to build a bamboo fabric that is comfortable and durable and also to reduce the cost of building bamboo homes.”
There are currently more than 5,000 bamboo fabrics in the world, which is more than the total number of sheets of paper in the entire world, according to the World Paper Foundation.
Bamboo has a long history of being used in different industries, including for building materials, as a material for building and construction, as an ingredient in food and as a fabric for clothing.
The idea of building a home with bamboo was proposed in the early 1980s.
It was a controversial one, with the Chinese Communist Party criticising it as a threat to national unity and saying that it would lead to an economic disaster.
At the time, China was a major exporter of cotton, but that trade was cut off in 1997 by the Great Recession.
China’s textile industry has been shrinking over the past decade, and has suffered from a series of corruption scandals.
It has also been struggling to improve its standard of living as a result.
The campaign is seen by some as a move to encourage Chinese consumers to buy more affordable bamboo fabrics.
The government has recently announced plans to phase out its textile industry, although there is no sign of any immediate plans to do so.
The curtain was also launched as part a new initiative to improve the living conditions of migrant workers.
There are around 100 million migrant workers in China, and there is an ongoing debate about whether they should be allowed to return to their countries of origin.
The decision to manufacture the curtains in China is seen to be part of this debate, and many migrant workers are worried about their future prospects.
