Bam-On | made from Recycled Bamboo Scaffolding

HK$ 53,800

83

Hong Kong is the city with the MOST skyscrapers in the world (more than New York City and Dubai by far). 

While many other cities build their high rises with metal scaffolding, we use Bamboo Scaffolding (竹棚 zuk1 paang4 ), a centuries old building technique that we are most proud of, to build some of the tallest buildings in the world. 

 

 

Each year, more than five million bamboo rods are used by the construction industry. However, due to safety reasons, most of them go straight to the landfills only after one building project. 

WE ARE HERE TO MAKE A CHANGE. We turn recycled bamboo rods into the insoles of the most earth friendly slip ons ever.   

The Erth team collect bamboo rods from the construction sites in Hong Kong. We then clean, disinfect and laminate them to turn them into the insoles of the most earth friendly slip ons ever. 

Now introducing two summer colorways - Chalk and Uprush

Back in December 2016, the Bam-On was just a wild idea to turn an unique art form in construction into our lifestyle. Now, the idea is only one step away from becoming a reality. It is your turn to join us and be part of the change!

  A quick guide for new backers down below. 

Note: We will send a survey to all backers after the campaign ends to get your choice of colorways and sizes.

Risks and challenges

We have strong faith in the Erth Team and the supplier's ability to keep up with our demand and deliver on time. The only concerns we have are the uncertainties and risks for delays in any manufacturing process, although unlikely. We will take every precaution to prevent any such event. Throughout the project, we will send backers frequent updates on production and delivery in detail, through Kickstarter and our social media accounts.
