Sure,it's just the way the individual strips are aligned and laminated,that make it horizontal or vertical,as to the carbonizing it's just heated so the sugar in the bamboo carmelizes,and becomes the brown color that's become very popular.

There are many types of bamboo flooring. The horizontal carbonized bamboo has larger knuckles giving it a unique bamboo look. The carbonized color is good because it retains the same color throughout the bamboo rather than just a stain on the surface. If you get a deep scratch it is less noticeable because it is the same color underneath. If you were to refinish your flooring one day the flooring would remain the same color.
