Dutch company Blackstar produces beautiful urban transportation machines out of Ghana’s bamboo harvest. The product is both ecologically sustainable and stylish, and a responsible venture for providing immediate economic benefits to the local community. Each bike frame is made from bamboo sourced from Central Ghana, which is then skillfully fabricated by craftsmen who bind the wooden components together using sisal fibres derived from Northern Ghana. The result is a unique bicycle that is good for getting from place to place as well as supporting Africa’s labor force.
