Linda Garlandwas an internationally recognized interior designer, environmentalist and a leading advocate for bamboo promotion as a sustainable alternative to timber. She came to Indonesia in early 70s and decided to settle down in Bali. Not long after, she established an international interior design business and started to get in touch with bamboo in her design. She fell in love with bamboo instantly and used it as the signature of her products.


Arief Rabik is the founder of Indobamboo and currently the Director of Environmental Bamboo Foundation. He is a second generation bamboo specialist, following in the footsteps of his mother, Linda Garland. His connection with bamboo started in the early age of childhood.

It grew even stronger as a teenager when he started to get involved in some of his mother’s project. At that time, he started to see bamboo not only as a source of toy material but it could also be a source of industrial materials, poverty alleviation, and even the source of life as it could hold much water and generate fresh air to breathe. From then on, Arief has made himself an environmental scientist in his own right with, up to now, over 20 years of experience in bamboo forest management and bamboo based industry.
