Meet the Artist

Vijay is the creator of India’s first bamboo bicycle, furniture designer and carpenter. His bamboo bikes have been put to test for a 900-km, eight day ride at a challenging mountain bike event proving it’s design and endurance. A man of many passions like urban farming and making his own craft beer, it’s always exciting being around him.

The VAWAA experience includes

  • Custom frame design to fit your height.
  • Geometry and jig set up.
  • Market visit to choose bamboo tubing specific to your frame.
  • Cutting and shaping bamboo so pieces fit snugly together.
  • Setting joints with sisal/hemp fiber and resin.
  • Finishing joints for a streamlined aesthetic.
  • Pyrography to “tattoo” your bike. (optional)
  • Assembling bike using your own or sample bike components from the studio.
  • Taking bike for a day long spin in nearby countryside.
  • Going home with a beautiful bamboo frame, made with your own hands.
