Ink Bamboo / Air Freshener

Ink Bamboo

Two piece design, to be positioned on the exterior and interior sides of a house window. The outer piece is refreshed by sunlight. The inner piece filters and refreshes the air inside the house. The two pieces take turns daily.The internal bamboo charcoal stripes can increase work surface area. Bamboo shadows are cast as the sun shines on the inter-woven bamboo, a manifestation of traditional ink and bamboo art culture.Used bamboo charcoal can be dehydrated under sunlight to be refreshed and reused. It is easy to maintain and can last a long time, and it is a perfect example of LOHAS.
