From the manufacturer
Our Belief in Design, Quality & Construction
Design and function are a top priority at Totally Bamboo; All of our designs are manufactured by highly skilled craftsmen who utilize traditional woodworking skills along with cutting edge engineering and machinery.
- The Color of Bamboo: We do not use artificial dyes or stains. Our bamboo comes in two colors, light and dark. (Note: Light is the natural color of the bamboo. Dark is a richer, honey color, which is achieved by cooking or steaming the bamboo, and caramelizes the natural sugars in the fiber. This color is permanent and will not fade or wash out).
- Grain of Bamboo: There are three types: Vertical grain, Flat grain and End grain. (Note: Vertical grain is approximately 1/4" wide and is taken from the side of the split pole. Flat grain is approximately 5/8" wide and is taken from the face of the pole. End grain is the cross section of the pole).
- Adhesives in our bamboo: We had a chemist develop a high grade, non-toxic, FDA approved, food safe glue which we use exclusively in the manufacturing of all our bamboo products.
In addition to the high standards for design and engineering, our factories adhere to stringent protocol, for curing and processing of the raw bamboo, resulting in the highest quality product attainable. We only use premium grade bamboo and then, only the lower portion of the pole due to its increased density. The forests from which we source our bamboo are designated for commercial harvesting and not a food source or habitat for the wild Great Panda. And because the welfare of our planet and the animals and people on it are our top priority, we partner with factories that are ISO 9001 compliant - a rating system which monitors non-polluting environmental issues and employee welfare, safety and minimum age.
Our Totally Bamboo Family
Many years ago, in a nook in the 'NoHo' Arts District of North Hollywood, California, Tom Sullivan & Joanne Chen owned and operated a small design and manufacturing studio. Their focus was on the design and manufacture of luxury customized director chairs for the movie industry. In their quest for a lighter weight, but sturdy and durable chair, they experimented with bamboo, long known for its strength to weight ratio. The resulting chair was not only lighter but substantially stronger than the oak originally used for their director’s chairs.
Intrigued with this renewable, ecologically friendly material, as well their desire to use every scrap from the manufacturing of the chairs, they set out to design various houseware products using their 'engineered bamboo'. In doing so, the world's first bamboo cutting board was developed! Bamboo, they discovered, is harder than maple, making it the perfect cutting board surface.
Shortly thereafter, Totally Bamboo was born. Launching as the premiere manufacturer for bamboo houseware products; offering everything from cutting & serving boards, salad bowls, salt boxes, cooking & serving utensils to the original Hollywood chairs.
Totally Bamboo has changed the way the world uses bamboo, as a viable alternative to our precious hardwood trees.
No old growth forests are touched.
No trees are cut.
Bamboo is 16% harder than maple wood (commonly used for cutting boards), 33% lighter weight than oak and yet can be as strong as steel. It holds the promise of a sustainable, cost effective, durable and ecologically responsible alternative to a material that is a bi-product of widespread clear cutting of old growth, hard wood forests.
Bamboo is a grass which grows to a harvestable height of 60 feet in three to five years; growing as much as two feet per day! The extensive root system stabilizes the ground in which it grows and continually sends up new shoots, naturally replenishing itself. Bamboo does not require replanting after harvest, making it one of the most renewable resources in the world. Moso, the bamboo species used at Totally Bamboo, can be re-harvested every 4 ½ years, compared to the 30-60 year growth cycle for most hard woods.
Totally Bamboo products are made from a bamboo commonly referred to as Moso, which is grown 500k west of Shanghai in China. This region has a temperate climate which is optimal for slower growing bamboo and therefor produces a much denser, harder and more durable stalk. This type of bamboo absorbs very little moisture and consequently reduces shrinkage or swelling in the finished product, making it a superior material for cutting boards and other kitchen and household items.

Top customer reviews
Same seems to be the case for this salt box - pleasant to look at, pleasant to touch, love the little magnetic "lock" (the lid snaps in the closed position).
I initially wanted a salt box similar to what Alton Brown uses on his Good Eats show. But then I thought: I don't want a vessel I have to hold to open it - I want a vessel I could open with 1 hand without lifting it off the counter and also close it the same way - this is it!
I do wish it was a bit bigger, 3.5" is ok, but you have to keep it filled. I figure that if your salt level reaches less than half it'll be hard to reach in and grab a pinch. It's fairly thick, so it's really less than 3" on the inside - a little smaller than I pictured it. But I'm not taking any stars away for this, just mentioning.
Really nice item, IMO.
When you receive them, they do have a smell that you'll want to get rid of before putting any salt/seasonings in them. To get rid of this smell I simply placed all 3 salt boxes I purchased in a glass baking dish (about 11x13 in size), filled each of the salt boxes about halfway full with baking soda and closed the lids. Then I spread baking soda all around the salt boxes and on top of them (all in the glass baking dish). I placed the glass dish with the salt boxes in it on my counter and left it there for 5 days. After the 5 days, I dumped the baking soda that was in each of the salt boxes in the garbage and wiped each salt box clean with a damp washcloth, let them air out for about 20 minutes and the smell was gone. Easy as that.
The salt box has a 3 ½ inch diameter and is 2 ¾ inches high. It’s a beautiful color and well-made. I love it’s made out of Moso bamboo because bamboo naturally replenishes itself and grows back fast, and by using bamboo we save other trees.
I bought this one to put my sea salt in but now that I’ve gotten it I want to get another one for the lemon flavored specialty salt I just got. My problem will be to decide which one to get! You don’t have to use it for salt though; it can be used for a variety of things. You could store earrings or other jewelry, buttons, paper clips or herbs. The sky’s the limit.
There’s one box with a Christmas message that would make a great stocking stuffer or small gift for someone you need to give a gift but don’t want to spend a lot of money. Believe me they will be impressed! This would also make a great housewarming or shower gift.
Very satisfied with the functionality and beauty of the Moso bamboo salt box and highly recommend it.
