The benefits of Bamboo
Bamboo is 100% natural and 100% sustainable, which are two important factors in today’s climate where concern for the environment and chemical free fabrics is of paramount importance. Bamboo is very quick to regenerate as it is the fastest growing plant in the world; it can grow to full height in 3 months and be fully mature in 3-4 years, this is due to its tremendous capacity to absorb water and as a fabric it retains this property. Bamboo is also known to improve soil quality and is grown without the use of pesticides and fertilizers. It is not attacked by pests due to its natural antibacterial properties.
Under the microscope this remarkable fabric has a round cross section making it incredibly soft and beautifully smooth next to the skin. It is naturally breathable and highly absorbent so any moisture trapped between the fabric and the skin can wick away easily making bamboo fabric feel dry and comfortable next to the skin in both hot and cold weather. Bamboo is naturally antibacterial and antifungal therefore is also the natural choice for sensitive allergy prone skin.
