Traditionally the Foochows use the bamboo to make almost everything they need at home. Most Foochow elders used to tell me that they were able to make "simple things from bamboo". What great skills our elders and ancestors had!!
From the leaves - hats
From the stalks - brooms
from the stems - ladders,beds,chairs
from the splitted bamboo - chicken cages, baskets, boongki etc
the smaller splits from the bamboo stems are used as strings.
What an amazing God's creation!!
