Bamboo is one of the most eco-friendly materials on the planet. Not only does it grow extremely quickly and is 100% bio-degradable but it also does not require any pesticides or fertilizers.
Fabrics made from bamboo are amazingly soft giving you the feeling of luxurious comfort. Unlike synthetic fibres, the bamboo fibres have a round and smooth structure, sitting perfectly next to your body and therefore are non-irritating even to people with sensitive skin.
Bamboo fabric is light and strong and filled with various micro-gaps and micro-holes. This gives them excellent moisture absorption and ventilation properties.
Unlike cotton, bamboo fabrics can quickly absorb sweat and move it to the outer surface where it can evaporate, thereby keeping you drier and more comfortable. This structure of bamboo fibre also make these fabrics more breathable and thermal regulating than cotton, wool and synthetic fabrics.
Bamboo is also known for its natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties thanks to its unique bacteriostatic bio-agent (bamboo kun), which prevents growth of bacteria on the fibres.
Due to its remarkable properties, bamboo fibres have found a common use in todays clothing manufacturing market.
