Why Use Bamboo?

Bamboo is a remarkable and highly versatile natural resource. For many centuries it has been utilised in Asia in a range of uses, including in cooking, construction, transport, textiles and medicine. It is only relatively recently that the Western world has discovered how bamboo offers a wide range of benefits and an eco-friendly solution to many of our modern requirements. Bamboo is, quite simply, a wonderful, green resource that is hugely beneficial both to the way we want to live our lives and to the environment.

SUPER SOFT
Bamboo is to cotton what cashmere is to wool – a more soft and luxurious feel.

ANTIBACTERIAL
Bacteria do not live well in bamboo fabric. So it doesn’t get smelly even after many days.

UV PROTECTION
Bamboo fabric cuts out 97.5% of harmful UV rays, so perfect for holiday/travelling cover-ups.

KIND TO SKIN
For allergy prone skin, bamboo fabric is perfect. It’s anti-static and sits well next to your skin. No Irritation.

MOISTURE WICKING
Bamboo fabric absorbs moisture away from your skin, keeping you drier.

THERMO-CONTROL
Bamboo fabric is warm, yet it is also breathable. Performance in all temperatures.

NOT THIRSTY
Bamboo only needs rain water to grow. Very little, if any, additional water is ever required.

BIODEGRADABLE
100% Bamboo viscose is biodegradable.

GREATER YIELD
Bamboo yields the same volume as cotton from 10% of the land area.

GROWS NATURALLY
Bamboo thrives naturally without using any pesticides or fertilizers

GROWS FAST
Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world, so yields more often from the same plot.

SOIL SUSTAINABILITY
As a grass, bamboo is cut not uprooted, so is good for soil – particularly as it can grow on slopes not viable for other crops.
