Bamboo grows without assistance from humans and is 100% sustainable. Bamboo has many features that lend themselves perfectly to garments. Bamboo generates the same yield compared to cotton but using only 10% of the land area.
Bamboo is a fast-growing plant. It needs 3-5 years for growth, it does not occupy large areas of cultivated land and it does not require irrigation. Furthermore, it reduces the formation of greenhouse gases, absorbs five times more CO2 than an equivalent stand of trees and produces 35% more oxygen. It can grow in very hard conditions without any need of pesticides and herbicides. Bamboo roots stabilize the soil and inhibit erosion.
The cross-section of the bamboo fiber is filled with various micro-gaps and micro-holes, ensuring much better moisture absorption and ventilation than other fibers. This means that the bamboo is 2-3 degrees cooler in warm weather and also very warm in cold weather.
Bamboo never sticks to the skin as it is 3-4 times more absorbent than cotton. It wicks moisture away from the skin which then evaporates, keeping you naturally drier and more comfortable.
At a microscopic level, bamboo yarns have a round and smooth surface. That is why it is very smooth and sits perfectly next to the skin. Bamboo is gentler for sensitive or allergy prone skin as the fibers are round and smoother than other fabrics causing less irritation.
Bamboo yarn is derived from the bamboo tree which is native to the Asian continent and is widely used to make a variety of clothing materials. There are several different types of bamboo yarn, but most claim to be 100 percent treated bamboo and eco-friendly. Bamboo has been used naturally for many years in China, Japan and the other nations of Asia, and by creating products from the bamboo allows these cultures to keep their heritage intact. They make use of the same materials they have had for generations.
Bamboo as a plant is considered environmentally sustainable, as it requires no pesticides to grow and is one of the most easily replenishable plants in the world. It can grow swiftly as long as there is a dependable source of water nearby. All products made from bamboo are durable and biodegradable.
Bamboo yarn is created very similar like paper is made from all kind of trees through a distillation and bleaching process. The wood and leaves of the bamboo tree are harvested and grounded into small parts. These parts are then steeped in a mixture of water and chemicals until they become soft, and then shredded apart until the individual fibers of the bamboo are released and form a pulp. This pulp will first be processed, later it can be easy manipulated and bonded again into many different shapes. The pulp is run through several filters that take away unwanted contaminants and unnecessary particles and then put through a bleaching process that turns the pulp white. Once the pulp is whitened, it can be dyed with a variety of different colours, bonded again into long fibers and wound into yarn.
As a fabric, bamboo, becomes soft and flowing, with a tendency to take on colour well and has a strong water permeability. This means that garments (and towels) made from bamboo yarn can easily absorb liquid, and are both breathable and sweat-resistant. Bamboo yarn can also be used to make mats (yoga), stockings, bed clothes and of course socks and underwear.
Our Bamboo garments are so SUPR soft you have to feel it to believe it. Bamboo has many natural qualities that lend themselves perfectly to garments. At a microscopic level, bamboo fiber has a round and smooth surface meaning that it’s very gentle against skin. Bamboo is 2-3 degrees cooler in warm weather and also very warm in cold weather, because its fiber micro structure is filled with various micro-gaps and micro-holes. Being 3-4 times more absorbent than cotton bamboo garments wick nasty moisture away from the skin, keeping your body fresh and dry.
