Donation Information


Linda Garland was an internationally recognized interior designer, environmentalist, and a leading advocate for the use of bamboo as a sustainable alternative to timber. She came to Indonesia in early 70’s and decided to settle down in Bali. Not long after, she established an international interior design business and familiarized herself with bamboo through her design. She fell in love with bamboo instantly and it ultimately became the signature material 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 projects. At that time, he discovered that bamboo is not only as a source of toy material but also a source of industrial materials, poverty alleviation, and even the source of life as it holds much water and generates fresh air to breathe. Since then, Arief has grown into an environmental scientist in his own right with, up to now, over 20 years of experience in bamboo forest management and bamboo based industry.
