Behind EKOBO

Ekobo FamilyEkobo FamilyEkobo Family

Founders, Franco-American duo Bruno & Boo Louis, stand by their mission
to be pioneers in eco-design.

We’ve been long-devoted to improving the way we engage with people and our planet, but our creative process is fueled by our own family - our three girls, our messy real life needs; each collection expands as our own kids grow.
Our first bamboo fibre product, a kids set, was conceived because we couldn’t find BPA-free (and Disney-free :) baby dishware for our first daughter, who's just turned 13! At the time, as parents and consumers, we struggled to trust established brands who offered the only products on the market. Leaning on our years of bamboo expertise, in 2012 we partnered with a factory in China that produced a new bamboo fibre eco-composite. Combining sawdust waste from chopstick factories and a food safe resin, we worked together to fine-tune what is now our BIOBU® FSC-certified Bamboo Fibre Collection. To push both design and function, we’ve added other responsibly-sourced materials to our range including cork, wood and organic cotton.
We’ve always believed that being green isn’t a fad, or an option, so we remain committed to making products that are durable, safe, thoughtful alternatives for today, but most importantly, for tomorrow. All our products are meant to be used and REUSED, by big and little, day in and day out, indoors or outdoors.
Thank you for being a part of our family’s adventure.

Being Green

FSC CERTIFIED BAMBOO

EKOBO chose bamboo because it is one of our earth’s most renewable resources. It is a fast-growing, naturally-regenerative woody grass which flourishes organically without pesticides, fertilisers or herbicides. It can be continuously harvested every 3 years without damaging the plant or the surrounding environment. The bamboo used in BIOBU products is collected from the sawdust that is shed from cutting and shaping bamboo chopsticks and bamboo flooring.

CORK

Cork production is sustainable due to the fact that the cork tree is not cut down to obtain cork; only the bark is stripped to harvest the cork. The tree continues to live and grow. The cork we’ve used in our designs is a conglomerate. It is made by combining the waste material (cork and dust granules) of industrial cork production and a LFGB approved food-safe resin.

100% Organic Cotton

The EKOBO Home textile range is inspired from traditional Turkish bath cloth or “Peshtemal” which is absorbent and fast-drying. Made with 100% ultra-soft organic cotton yarn and Oeko-Tex Standard certified dyes, each piece is hand-finished, and features colourful details that give a modern twist to an ancient textile. GOTS certified product.
