Bamboushay produces pottery in a variety of shapes and sizes in beautiful hues of blues and greens that match the island’s cool colours. Recently, the business’ key product has been scones. These light fixtures are durable and can be customized to match a house’s character or the home owner’s style. These scones can last a lifetime and can withstand both the heat and cold without ever tarnishing or fading. Bamboushay has received orders from all over the world and its pottery has been shipped worldwide.
The original name Bamboushay comes from the island of Nevis where the owner has roots. Pottery runs in the family blood and can still be traced back to the village of New Castle in Nevis. Pottery continues to be handmade by another family member in Nevis to this day. Bamboushay Pottery was born in Tortola has planted hits own roots deep in the soil. Although the physical building was flattened by Hurricane Irma on September 6, 2017 – the building has been rebuilt in Palestina Estate and is back in business!
In 2012, Bamboushay expanded the business to include a lounge on Waterfront Drive, beside Pusser’s, Road Town and Grand Café. Bamboushay Lounge was one of the main hotspots on Friday and Saturday nights for a drink after work, a corporate dinner and for a dance later in the night with a mix of popular music that appealed to all.
During the day, cruise ship visits, and locals alike enjoyed a delicious lunch on their open-air patio. Tasty treats that included fish, shrimp, chicken and vegetarian options varied daily to satisfy all. Hurricane Irma left her mark on Bamboushay Lounge as well and they are still in the process of re-establishing the lounge aspect of the business. Look forward to seeing the doors open again in early 2019.
