Julia Washbourne came from Germany to Hong Kong in 2005 as a purchasing manager for a renowned mail order company. Her work exposed her to the issues of pollution, waste and labour exportation that plague global supply chains.
Julia dedicated herself to finding a better way and discovered the endless benefits of bamboo and launched Bamboa in 2008, which is an established eco-friendly home and lifestyle brand. She is an environmentalist and an animal lover and enjoys many ocean sports. You can always bump into Julia either on the ocean paddling (outrigger, surfski, SUP) or on the beach with her dog Ben Bamboa.
At Bamboa Home, we constantly keep in mind that resources and energy supplies are becoming scarcer. Therefore we have made it our calling to help rediscover the beauty and qualities of a sustainable resource: Bamboo. We even plant bamboo. A part of the proceeds go to the GBI (Grow Bamboo Initiative) launched by us.
Bamboa designs and produces attractive, useful home and lifestyle products using the sustainable source bamboo. Our products range from bamboo bed sheets, blankets, towels, t-shirts, sleep wear, bamboo sunglasses, home-wares, bathroom items and many more. We provide you with such an eclectic range of products that will leave you spoilt for choice.
Bamboa has a retail store since 2014 in Hong Kong: S304, Tower Staunton, PMQ, 35 Aberdeen Street, Central, Hong Kong.
In 2021, we launched our first retail outlet at Mandarin Oriental in Hong Kong. Another outlet in Stanley opened in 2022.
We have also an office in Los Angeles, California U.S.A and in Saint Tropez, Nice France.
