Why bamboo?

Many of you come to this site merely looking for a standard product, and we’re here to provide you with an eco-friendly version.

Bamboo grows very quickly with minimal help or intervention. There is no need for irrigation, chemicals or pesticides and it reseeds itself so there is limited input from gas-guzzling, heavy farm machinery. It also grows very tall, so a farmer can yield more per square metre than many other crops.

Our factory supplies only the highest quality materials that are Oeko Tex 100 certified – an industry standard given at point of manufacture.

Below are some of the remarkable characteristics of bamboo:

•Softness - Softer than the softest cotton. Bamboo fabric has a natural sheen to the surface and feels similar to silk or cashmere.

•Comfortable - Bamboo fabric absorbs water 3-4 times better than cotton, keeping skin comfortable, rather than sticky, in hot weather. The fabrics stay 2-3 degrees cooler in hot temperatures and warmer in cold temperatures. Bamboo apparel is thermal regulating, anti-fungal, anti-static and will keep you cooler, drier, warmer and odor free.

•Appearance - Bamboo looks like expensive Pima or Egyptian cotton and drapes like silk. It has less shrinkage than cotton and does not pill. It has been described as feeling like pure cashmere.

•Protective and Hygienic - Unlike other anti-microbial fabrics, which require a chemical treatment, organic Bamboo fiber clothing is naturally anti-microbial requiring no added harmful chemicals. It contains an agent, "bamboo kun", that prevents bacteria from cultivating on it.

•UV Protection - Bamboo fiber fabrics have natural UV protection. There have been tests where companies have sent out 100% bamboo clothing to research laboratories for UV protection testing. The UPF label rate is 15. The fabric scored 18.3 on the UPF scale with 94.15% UVA block and 93.17% UVB block. * The UPF system was created especially for sun protective fabrics. UPF measurements of fabrics are generally tested by spectrophotometer equipment and are not tested using human subjects. The UPF rate indicates how much of the sun's UV radiation is absorbed by the fabric. The advantage of the UPF standard is that both UVB and UVA are measured.

•Natural and Chemical-Free – Bamboo is grown without using pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Bamboo fiber is 100% biodegradable.
