About the Brand

Bamboo Labs is an award-winning social enterprise, all about building a future of accessible, affordable and sustainable mobility with one of the most sustainable resource of the 21st century: Bamboo. They use bamboo in a previously unknown way: creating bamboo wheelchairs and bikes, all locally sourced and locally made - Bamboo labs aims to meet a growing demand for sustainable and accessible mobility. Founded by young Ethiopian entrepreneur Abel Hailegiorgis, the company began its work by addressing a need for improved mobility for wheelchair users in Addis Ababa and has since expanded into making bamboo bike frames.
