Message From the Maker

My name is Li Qiang. I am 42 years old and I have been working with this factory for 10 years. Before making the bamboo toothbrush, I learned handiwork from my father. After his retirement, I continued to work in the factory. My wife and I have a boy and a girl, our son has started university and he is a good student, we are proud of him. Our daughter loves her elder brother, and she hopes she can study in the same university together with her brother in the future. This job gives me a stable income, so I am very grateful. Thank you for your support, our bamboo toothbrush is a good product and I hope you love this product. Thank you!
