Bamboo bends but does not break. Mekong Quilts produces very reliable bamboo helmets with an EVA liner of 3 different thickness’s (10-12-15mm) to adjust for various head sizes and comfort. The helmets have not been certified yet, this is under process.
|The making of the helmets is all by hand and involves a dozen different steps, all by very skilled women workers. The bamboo workshops provide employment to 20 people who have thus roughly doubled their income.|
