Better Homes for All Filipinos
The Philippines construction industry has been adding 220,000 homes per year, and still cannot meet demand. The Philippine Chamber of Commerce reports an affordable housing backlog of 4M units, which makes the low-income or “socialised housing” segment the fastest growing in the country.
Currently 50% of homes are built with resource intensive concrete and imported steel. Yet while bamboo is an indigenous plant of the Philippines, its full potential as a long-lasting, renewable building material has not yet been tapped due to difficulties sourcing, treating and manufacturing the raw material.

Bamboo is the Solution
Bamboo house construction is proven safer than concrete and steel in earthquakes and typhoons.
Global pandemic and economic disruption of supply chains have reinforced the value of local production and value chains.
Increasing consumer interest in environmentally-friendly products and processes that can compete on price.
Learn more about our treatment process
Kawayan Collective aggregates, processes and distributes beautiful, durable, Philippine bamboo as a sustainable construction material. We organize the collection and treatment of bamboo poles for construction grade quality that rivals cement block and steel and imported building materials.
Our mission is to elevate bamboo as a sustainable, durable, beautiful building material and our vision is better homes for all Filipinos. Our logo is a butterfly because it is a symbol that means many things to us: transformation, propagation and rebirth. It is also a reference to the butterfly effect —that one small change in behavior can ripple to make a big impact.
We opened April 1, 2019, but our team has over 20yrs experience treating and crafting bamboo. When you purchase Kawayan Collective bamboo, you know you are buying local, sustainable, high-quality goods made by a company that cares for people, place and profit equally.
