Inspired by her father, Elora Hardy is now making revolutionary bamboo houses in Indonesia. She left her fashion career in New York and left for Bali seeing the infinite possibility of using bamboo as a sustainable source of construction material.

For this reason she treats the bamboos with naturally occurring Boron so that those last a lifetime.
