In Asia for thousands of years, bamboo has an impressively wide variety of uses: it has been used in building, in making paper and books. Its roots, shoots and leaves are used for food and brewed into tea. Along with being an attractive houseplant, it has been commonly used in household items such as wall hangings, baskets, eating and serving utensils, chairs, fans,musical instruments and hats. Throughout Asia, bamboo has literally hundreds of practical and spiritual uses. Bamboo symbolizes suppleness and resilience, straightforwardness and simplicity.
