Our new bathroom, how exciting!

The walls were made weaving muddy rice straw through bamboo.


Rice straw was mixed with a mud mix, before being woven through the vertical bamboo poles.


This technique is most applicable in tropical climates, since the thin walls provide little insulation. Here, in Thailand it is a quick, cheap viable alternative to other more complex, time consuming or expensive techniques. And the results are beautiful as well of course!
