Essentially, tortoise shell is bamboo that is still green, cured, and sealed to maintain the green color.  It's then burnt with a flame (blow torch or similar item) to give the burnt patch look.  The burnt patches are then sanded down and varnished to get a finished look.  Oddly, this look is only common in North America and Europe.  It's rarely used in the Far East.  I suppose it gives  that jungle look that most people are familiar with.

Listed below is a comparison of all the basic matchstick blinds from different manufacturers.
