Our carbonized strand woven flooring is not stained. It's the same toasty color all the way through, thanks to a heating process that darkens the bamboo before it's woven and compressed. It's also available in 5" Wide Plank!
Looking for an ultra-durable floor that's also beautiful and environmentally sound? Ambient strand woven flooring is the answer. Pets. Kids. High-traffic. High heels. This flooring can handle them all. With a warm and unique grain that is similar to traditional hardwoods, this floor shines in the spotlight in both style and performance.
What is Strand Woven Carbonized Bamboo Flooring?
Almost three times harder than oak and extremely stable, our strand woven flooring is made by heating long strips of bamboo, which are pulled apart into strands, woven together, then compressed them under extreme pressure and heat. This process gives our strand woven flooring a handsome, hardwood look. As a tongue-and-groove flooring, it can be installed using either a nail-down or glue-down method.
Why Choose Carbonized Wood?
Choosing carbonized wood over natural bamboo is a purely aesthetic decision. Carbonization offers no structural advantages - in fact, it actually reduces the durability of the wood slightly by about 2% compared to non-carbonized flooring. That being said, hardness alone isn't everything (as noted above, the product is still over twice as durable as oak), and many people prefer the darker look that comes with carbonization. As with all our flooring products, strand woven carbonized bamboo flooring from Ambient Bamboo Floors features our exclusive lifetime structural guarantee, as well as a 30-year guarantee on the fit and finish of our AccuSeal® system.
Dozens of Color Combinations Available!
Carbonization provides a rich base for our many custom stain finishes. Choose from over a dozen different colors that match perfectly with any décor. In addition to providing extra strength, the strand weaving process also contributes a distinctive grain that mimics the look of hardwood.

We are so happy with the bamboo flooring we purchased from Ambient. We received several different samples of flooring from different companies and we found that the Ambient flooring was so much nicer than the others. We installed the strand woven bamboo for a client and they are so extremely happy with it. I was nervous ordering flooring over the internet. But we received our flooring on time, it was a good price, and the quality was there. I would not go anywhere else. I have enclosed a picture of the floor we installed. Thank You.

Our restaurant used the Ambient Strand Woven Carbonized product and we are thrilled with it! It is a durable and such a beautiful floor. Definitely the flooring of the future!
I just love the exotic look of the strand woven bamboo. It completely changed the look of our room to something we have to show everyone. We can not wait to replace the old beat up hardwood in the rest of our home!

Attached is a picture of our restaurant using the Ambient Strand Woven carbonized product. It is a durable and beautiful floor and we are thrilled with it. Definitely the flooring of the future!
The bamboo product you sell is wonderful. I have very little experience with flooring and was able to do this project with some help from experienced friends, but the bulk of the work I did myself. My friends who know wood products are very impressed with the density and toughness of the bamboo.
Here are pics of our BEAUTIFUL new bamboo floor! We used 2/3 strand woven Tiger and 1/3 carbonized. We love, love, love it! It's our new favorite room. My husband, father-in-law, and I installed it ourselves and it was truly quite easy to do. We even used some extra pieces as the baseboards to give it a really finished look. Thanks for your help...I'm definitely passing along your info to others.

The Strand Carbonized flooring holds up beautifully in our restaurant!
I have attached a few pictures of what my floor looks like - love it.

Our bar top has never looked better!
What a wonderfully engineered and durable material to work with. We installed this floor in a day and our clients were absolutely thrilled, and still are after more than a year.
Attached are pictures of the bamboo floor installed in our large dining room. The whole operation from purchase and delivery to installation went off without a hitch. Great job and the floor is beautiful. The colors match every type of wood in the room! I wish I had known about bamboo flooring sooner. Don't like the idea of denuding the forests in Brazil and Indonesia or anywhere else. We discovered bamboo flooring in a four star hotel in Saigon where it was the only type of flooring in the entire hotel. Here's to you selling more bamboo flooring and saving the forests.
Our Ambient Bamboo floors were installed about 4 weeks ago and we moved into the new house 2 weeks ago. We put bamboo throughout the house - even in the bathrooms and laundry/pantry room. We used the Strand Woven product - primarily carbonized - but we did a border with natural in our upstairs guest area. Pictures are attached (sorry - they are not specifically of the floor - but just general home photos).
We went with Strand Woven because we have 3 four legged children and live right on the Coast. The strength of the sample we received was more than impressive. I did a number of my own "janka" tests (LOL) - and also soaked the sample in water overnight. When compared to other bamboo products and other hard wood options - there was just no comparison. I had always assumed I would use tile when I built a new home on the Island - but once I saw your Strand Woven product - that all changed. The expertise of your staff and their quick response to all questions I had cinched the choice.
Everyone who walks into our home comments on how beautiful the floors are. I have a hard time convincing some people that they are bamboo and not hardwood!! The floors lend the house a warmth and look that you cannot get with anything other than hardwood - yet I have no guilt about killing beautiful, old trees so that I could have a hardwood floor. Bamboo is the best of all worlds. And if you really LIVE in your home like we do - especially in a coastal area - I believe Strand Woven is the best of the bamboo products. It was well worth the extra investment. If I had it to do over again - I would have considered using bamboo for my ceiling!
So far - so good. Even with some construction occuring after the floors were installed and all the movers in and out - the floor looks FANTASTIC - with minimal attention to upkeep.
I can't say enough about your company or your product. I would highly recommend both to anyone trying to decide on flooring.
