New pressed bamboo items in the store

Ten Thousand Villages of Austin has new items!  Artisans working with Viet House in Tay Ninh Province, Vietnam, craft this folding table from metal and pressed bamboo.  Pressed bamboo is a new technique the group has developed in recent years in response to a demand for a more modern look.  After it has been treated, pressed and sanded, bamboo can be used just like any other wood in furniture making.


Summer may be coming to an end, but you can enjoy this tropical look year-round!  Come on in and check out the set today! …Taylor
