I love bamboo! This is such a great quality mug, and so beautiful. I love that it is stainless steel and that the bottom has a no-slip pad on it. My favorite part, besides the beauty of it, is the lid. It's great that you can open/close it without having to remove the lid to drink from the mug. Keeping it closed will help keep your beverage hot and prevent spills if you accidentally bump it, the contents won't splash out.
