Bamboo is an ECO-FRIENDLY and SUSTAINABLE textile. The fabric is made from the pulp of the bamboo grass. It has been growing in popularity due to the incredible wicking ability, silky texture, absorbency, insulation, its antibacterial properties, and the fact that it is so light yet so strong.
It is widely favoured by many companies as we are now living in a time when sustainability and eco-friendly products are a necessity. The bamboo plant grows extremely quickly (sometimes up to 3 feet a day) and usually does not require the use of herbicides or pesticides meaning that many plantations are kept organic and replanted yearly.
Bamboo yarn is 3-4 times more ABSORBENT than cotton. This is due to the amazing wicking ability that pulls moisture away from the skin. This also creates ANTIBACTERIAL and ANTIFUNGAL properties within the fabric. This amazing textile manages to reduce the amount of bacteria and smelly odours that live in other fabrics and on our skin, therefore keeping you clean and smelling sweet. This is also able to be retained after washes.
