Bamboo has age old relations with the Uttarakhand state. Where the common Lathi bamboo (Dendrocalamus strictus) is prevalent in the lower reaches of the state, the ringal, the reed like small bamboo variety, is abundantly present in the higher mountain areas. Ringal used to be widely utilized in manufacturing of hukkah before independence for which a large quantity of ringal used to be extracted from the forests.
Bamboo fiber is a unique biodegradable textile material. As a natural cellulose fiber it can be 100% biodegraded in soil by microorganisms and sunshine. The decomposition process does not cause any pollution in the environment.Bamboo fiber is praised as the natural, green and eco-friendly new-type textile raw material of the 21st century. Properties like softness, anti-bacteria, great lustre and hand add to the benefits.
