8 Reasons To Choose Bamboo Fabric


There are so many reasons why bamboo fabric makes a great choice for clothing, towelling and bedding. 

Here are eight of the features of bamboo we love most...

1. Environmentally friendly

It's well known that bamboo is one of the world’s best sustainable resources. 

But with a growth rate of up to a metre per day, bamboo also holds the record as the world's fastest growing plant.

And it’s actually not a tree, but a grass that grows new shoots after being harvested, without having to be replanted.

Planting bamboo is a great way to reduce our carbon footprint and help fight global warming - it absorbs carbon dioxide and releases 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere than an equivalent stand of trees.

Bamboo fabric is also 100% biodegradable, making it an excellent eco-friendly clothing option.

2. Naturally organic

Bamboo grows happily without the use of pesticides, fertilisers or other chemicals.

Unlike crops such as cotton, it doesn’t require irrigation to grow, helping to conserve our planet's most precious resource.

In fact, bamboo grows like a weed... it is possible for bamboo to grow a metre in 24 hours. Can you imagine it?

3. Antibacterial, hypoallergenic and anti-static

Bamboo has a unique antibacterial quality. It contains an anti-bacteria bio-agent called “bamboo kun”, found naturally in bamboo.

This means that bamboo fabric is naturally antibacterial, no matter how many times it is washed. 

And because bacteria doesn't survive well on bamboo fabric, it is odour-resistant and more hygienic than similar fabric types. This makes it a perfect choice for clothing such as socks and active wear.

Oh, and bamboo fabric is anti-static, too. Goodbye to clingy clothes!

4. Super soft AND durable

Bamboo fabric is both strong and incredibly soft.

Not only is it durable enough to throw in the washing machine, it's breathable and lightweight at the same time. 

And the feeling of bamboo fabric against your skin is just luxurious, soft and silky - it's often compared to the feeling of cashmere and silk.

5. Absorbs moisture

Another key feature of bamboo fabric is that it absorbs (or wicks) moisture away from your skin to keep you dry and comfortable.

This feature makes it a natural choice for sporting and active wear - in particular bamboo socks keep sweaty feet dry and odour-free.

6. Friendly to sensitive skin

Because bamboo fabric is so soft and naturally antibacterial, the eco-friendly bamboo fibres do not irritate the skin. 

It's a gentle fabric, making it perfect for babies and people with skin irritations and conditions such as eczema.

7. Temperature control

Because of the moisture absorbing and natural insulating properties of bamboo fibres, bamboo can help keep you cool when it's hot and warm when it’s cold.

It's great for newborn babies who are unable to regulate their body temperature - bamboo clothing and bed linen acts as a natural thermal regulation. 

It's also helpful in managing conditions that impact the body's natural temperature control, such as multiple sclerosis.

8. UV protection

Amazingly, bamboo fabric helps cut almost 98% of harmful UV rays.

This makes bamboo clothing a perfect option for protecting your skin - and your kids' skin - against Australia's harsh summer sun.
