6 Best Bamboo Keyboards of 2021 by Category

Woman sitting in front of computer; bamboo keyboards

A lot of us spend a large portion of our day on the computer, whether for work, school, just browsing, shopping, or staying connected. The list goes on!

The keyboard is the main way to interact with your device, so having a quality product is important. And a bamboo keyboard is a great way to add a little style to your desk while getting a great user experience.

I’m a true child of the internet, and both my jobs and personal interests have led to a pretty computer-heavy lifestyle. And it took a few sub-par keyboards breaking down on me before I decided it was time to invest in something a little hardier.

Of course, my research online for a bamboo keyboard was a little deeper than I expected. So in this article, I’ll break down a few of my favorite options and let you decide which would be best for you!

    Best Overall

    Look, a keyboard is a keyboard — they all serve pretty much the same function at the end of the day. So this choice is going to be about style, feel, and personal preference.

    That being said, my choice for Best Overall goes to the Bamboo Wireless Keyboard and Mouse by Trio Gato, a knockout in every aspect of keyboard quality!

    I’m a big fan of a full layout with a number pad since a lot of my day job consists of punching in figures, but even without that extra convenient setup, this bamboo keyboard is a sweet product.

    The handcrafted build is solid and sturdy, with a really nice glossy veneer to keep it looking clean no matter how much wear you put on it. Which in my case is a huge plus considering how much I type in a given day.

    In terms of aesthetics, the light color of the bamboo is beautiful – I love seeing the grain in my natural colored products. For a little added style, the grain direction on the keys is perpendicular to the main housing. Which is a really neat, subtle choice.

    Looks aside, this is still a workhorse with a nice set of risers in the back to achieve the perfect incline for long periods of work. Along with a satisfying, but short, action on the keys so you never mis-register what you’re typing.

    The connection is wireless, and it uses a single USB-A Bluetooth receiver for both the keyboard and the mouse which comes with it (bonus!) to keep your desk cable-free.

    Best Budget

    I think most of us can agree that less can be more in the right circumstance, and this keyboard fully embodies that concept both in price and form!

    The Impecca Custom Carved Bamboo Bluetooth mini Keyboard is a 60% keyboard. With everything you need and absolutely no fluff, perfect for those looking for a minimalist experience that doesn’t sacrifice function for style.

    Smaller form factor makes this a great option for someone who travels with a tablet or somebody looking for a way to control their PC-based home theater system. And to complement those uses, the internal battery will last up to 30 days on a single charge.

    For use across the living room or just to keep that desk wire-free, this is a Bluetooth-connected device. But I should mention that this does not use a receiver dongle, meaning whatever device you plan to use this with must be equipped with its own Bluetooth receiver.

    Naturally, that means that this bamboo keyboard is great for wireless devices that you already have. And you don’t have to worry about losing a proprietary connection dongle, which would make the thing a very beautiful, overcomplicated bamboo paperweight!

    All these factors, combined with a beautiful, natural finish, and laser cut and etched keys make this more than just a budget option. But the price pushes this piece over the edge.

    Best Wired Bamboo Keyboard

    Wireless is convenient, but it isn’t everything when it comes to the right bamboo keyboard for you. Especially if you’re going to be using it regularly.

    Not having to charge your keyboard or replace the batteries is a pretty fair trade for a wire or two crossing the desk, if you ask me. And the NCBH Wired Wooden Keyboard and Mouse Combo does just that while looking great the whole time.

    Gorgeous, light-colored bamboo makes up the entirety of this full-size keyboard, with delicate but durable laser-etched keycaps to ensure you never lose the lettering — no matter how many articles you (I) write!

    To top it off, the description of this bamboo keyboard mentions that it is waterproof. And while I wouldn’t recommend taking it into the tub, it’s a nice insurance to have in case you spill any coffee during an all-nighter.

    Best Bamboo Keyboard and Mouse Set

    Now, a few of the previous selections have included a mouse with their keyboard, but that doesn’t mean this category isn’t important.

    If you’re like me, you want to be sure you have options for each of the accessories that go with your PC. Especially if you’re using it as much as I use mine.

    That’s why the Impecca Hand-Carved Designer Bamboo Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo is my pick for Best Bamboo Keyboard and Mouse Set — because you get options.

    Not only is this bamboo keyboard beautiful, you have a handful of color options for both the keyboard housing and the mouse — all in sleek, sustainable bamboo!

    There isn’t much else to say about this bad boy. It’s a great keyboard in any other aspect you might think of, but oh, the choices!

    Best Bamboo Keyboard for Gaming

    Ah yes, my home turf.

    Lots of us use our computers for gaming. And while there are tons and tons of overpriced and over-hyped choices in the “gaming” accessory market, they really tend to be more about the look and less about the features.

    In this case, we have a beautiful bamboo keyboard that, of course, does everything you would expect a keyboard to do. With a little added feature that I’m a big fan of.

    The Smart Tech Handcrafted Natural Bamboo Wooden PC Wireless 2.4GHz Keyboard includes a few additional keys at the top of the frame which are marketed as multimedia buttons.

    As soon as I saw them, I was brought back to my World of Warcraft days. Because these are perfect macro keys, my friends.

    One of my biggest pet peeves in a PC game is when the base controls are actually so specific that you start to run out of convenient keys to bind them to. Nobody wants to be straining their fingers trying to hit “U” to open up the shop in Dota 2.

    Set aside your woes and map all your inconvenient controls to these wonderfully miscellaneous keys.

    Best Bamboo Keyboard Case

    This one isn’t technically a bamboo keyboard, but a lot of us take our devices on the go. And you should have a suitably sustainable and stylish storage solution!

    Here we have the KBDfans 60% Bamboo Case. Note that the product is made from 100% bamboo, but rather the size of keyboard that fits in this case is the 60% (mini keyboard) style.

    Smooth, natural bamboo creates a perfect enclosure for your delicate device when in transit. And the build quality is sure to keep your keyed companion protected for years to come.

    If you’re looking for something to protect your mini keyboard (like the Impecca Custom Carved Bamboo Bluetooth mini Keyboard above) take a look at this option.


    Sadly, that brings me to the end of my list of the Best Bamboo Keyboards. I hope one of the options we presented will be the one to fill the bamboo keyboard shaped hole in your heart!

    Usually, this is where I would include a few runners up that didn’t quite make the cut. But in this case, I didn’t find any other bamboo keyboards that I felt I could recommend in good conscience.

    If you find any other great options in the world of sustainability, we’d love to hear from you. So please feel free to share any other bamboo masterpieces with us!
