Bamboo is a unique and exquisite fabric.  Bamboo production leaves virtually no damage to the soil in which it is farmed and it is one of the most sustainable renewable resources available. It has a surprisingly luxurious feel and it has excellent wicking properties, which is ideal for heat dispersion.

How is Bamboo fabric made?

Bamboo fabric is a natural textile made from the pulp of the bamboo grass. Bamboo fiber is made by pulping the bamboo grass until it separates into thin threads of fiber, which can be spun and dyed for weaving into cloth. Bamboo fiber resembles cotton in its un-spun form, a puffball of light, airy fibers.

Benefits of Bamboo:

● Sustainable - Bamboo is a very quick growing grass and does not usually require the use of pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers to thrive. As a result, plantations can easily be kept organic and replenished yearly. The process of making unbleached bamboo fiber is very light on chemicals that could potentially harm the environment.

● Durable – Bamboo fabric retains many of the properties it has as a plant – including being lightweight and durable.

● Water Absorbent - Bamboo is highly water absorbent, able to take up three times its weight in water. This translates to an excellent wicking ability that will pull moisture away from the skin so that it can evaporate.

● Antibacterial – Bamboo fiber helps to reduce bacteria that cause unpleasant odors. It can also kill odor-causing bacteria.

● Very Soft – Many people who experience allergic reactions to other fibers do not complain of this issue with bamboo. The fiber is naturally smooth and round without chemical treatment.

● Insulating - Bamboo fabric has insulating properties.
