Bamboo, the “plant of a thousand uses”, as some call it, could be a boost to the Mexican economy, thanks to its characteristics: light, resistant and capable of growing at a high speed. Its applications are varied since it can be used in food, medicine, construction… Plant originating in India, it is a material that is transforming the homes and lives of millions of people in the world, because through it crafts, household accessories, bicycles, furniture and many more things are manufactured.

The National Forestry Commission (Conafor) points out that currently in Mexico, the state of Puebla occupies the first national place in bamboo production with almost three thousand hectares cultivated.

CINIA is especially linked to crafts through “La Trastienda”, the own store that since 2012 offers handicrafts made mostly by people with disabilities, either by CINIA’s own employees or products made by different foundations.
