Bamboo fabric has antibacterial properties. Bamboo fabrics have been shown to have natural antibacterial tendencies. This is perfect for our sensitive private areas. This is wonderful news to help those who struggle with yeast or infections in that area, which is very common.\
Bamboo is a temperature regulating fabric. Wearing bamboo next to the skin is terrific, as it is a fabric that regulates temperature and keeps the wearer at an even body temp.

We love to use bamboo to make many of our classing clothing pieces, including our Bamties bamboo underwear. Bamties bamboo underwear
are made from the leftover smaller pieces from our local slow fashion clothing production. They are not only soft and so comfortable, but help reduce waste when we make bamboo clothing. Eco fashion
can definitely look great and feel amazing.
