Palm flooring: Brushed Tusk by Smith & Fong

Brushed Tusk is the first in a series of product designs inspired by the culture and landscapes of India.

Bamboo interior finishes manufacturer Smith & Fong has launched the Brushed Tusk, the latest in its range of palm floor offerings.

Brushed Tusk is the first in a series of product designs inspired by the culture and landscapes of India. The materials come from the rural regions of India where the palm grows natively, and it’s very much a part of daily life there. The dimensions of this initial offering of Brushed Tusk flooring are 1/2” x 3-1/4” x random lengths up to five feet.

Founded in 1989 and headquartered in San Francisco, Smith & Fong Co. was the first US company to manufacture bamboo flooring for sale in North America, offering its initial product under the brand name Plyboo in 1993. In 1996, the firm began producing bamboo plywood, followed by coconut palm flooring and plywood products in 2000. Today, the company’s products are distributed and sold throughout North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
