  1. Preparation material

Materials for producing bamboo straws come from Neohouzeaua, plants of the same family of bamboo, naturally growing in mountainous areas like some province as Nghe An, Thanh Hoa, Ha Tinh, Son La…  of north Vietnam. This is a kind of cork with small body, short burning, beautiful color, when used with a unique cork odor, creating a sense of closeness to nature. The older the cork is, the more wood will be, the harder it will be; the young stems will be soft and easy to crack.

Materials for making bamboo straws have strict selection rules, such as regulations on harvesting time, age of trees, etc.

Young cork and Neohouzeaua harvested in the spring have higher levels of henmixenlulose, sugar, lipid, protein, starch than winter. This is a rich source of nutrients for bacterial and fungal strains, so the harvest is now susceptible to termites and mold. Mold will form blue, brown, gray spots on cork trunks, which are difficult to scrub, affecting user health and aesthetic value of cork.

Should harvest in the winter and need to select cork of an old age; if it is too young to dry, it will wither, shrivel, crack and wrinkly; If the body is deep, the tube will not be beautiful.

Should choose trees aged 2-3 years or more, no chalk, outside diameter 7-15mm and burning length> 20cm. The unsatisfactory young plants are kept and wait for many more months for the trees to grow into new ones.

The shrimps, after being harvested, are dried and gathered in a cool place to avoid moisture, termites before coming to the bamboo straw factory.

The meaning of this stage:

  • Boil to remove the sap.
  • Thorough destruction of bacteria and larvae found in cork trunks (due to the fungus’ ability to multiply, the disease depends mainly on temperature and humidity conditions; mushrooms often do not tolerate heat> 40ºC; weevils die in temperature> 50ºC) ⇒ ensure hygiene, ensure durability for long-term use.
  • Broken, unsatisfactory straws will be removed to filter out the best ones to market.
