Zen strand woven bamboo flooring is made from bamboo strands compressed to a higher density than regular bamboo flooring. It is a much harder bamboo flooring. It remains one of the hardest hardwood floor coverings and is also perfect for commercial use. The appearance is a more traditional one, yet the bamboo joints (or nodes) are still noticable. Technically, the bamboo is not woven, but as you can see the pattern in the boards is very natural. The coffee color strand woven bamboo has a very warm and rich tone, while the gold is more bright but still warm. The aluminum oxide finish is guaranteed not to wear through for 25 yrs.
