Indobamboo founder and CEO Arief Rabik was recently interviewed by Ubud Now and Then.
Topics covered included his family’s long connection with bamboo and sustainability, his own passions as an environmental scientist, and his belief that Indonesian is the future of global bamboo production.
On the history of bamboo in Bali:
The versatility of bamboo is its strength. A farmer and his family can weave the skin, make a building from its poles, make utensils for many different industries; everything from storage to sanitization (charcoal). The clear point with bamboo is that it has been used in all parts of Balinese living for many years, and so the opportunity still exists to supply a demand for a product in almost every facet of daily life here in Bali.
