Sturdy bamboo poles available in several sizes, diameter will vary as the bamboo poles are natural, and poles taper at the tops. Bamboo is a natural product and slight cracks may be visible, this is not preventable. WARNING! These poles are stained with non-toxic dyes (same as color dyes for clothing) not permanent paints. Due to thick skin on the bamboo surface not all the dye color is absorbed into the pole and some colors may bleed. Wash hands after handling and keep away from fabrics and furniture. 57" (nearly 5 ft tall) x 3/8"-1/2" dia.
