Bamboo clothing has been all the rage lately. It can be found used to make anything from dresses, to leggings, to socks and underwear. But the question remains- why is bamboo clothing so popular?
Nothing quite beats the softness of bamboo fabric! It can be compared to the feel of cashmere, or even silk, and is sure to have you feeling nice and cozy. Just imagine curling up drinking hot cocoa while wearing a pair of bamboo fleece sweatpants!
Dry and Breathable
Most synthetic fabrics make you feel pretty hot and stuffy, but you won’t find that with bamboo! It wicks moisture away from the skin and is actually up to 40% more absorbent than organic cotton! It is especially a game changer for going to the gym or base layering.
All Weather Comfort
Not only is bamboo fabric breathable during hot weather, but it also will keep you nice and warm during the cold winter months. No more worrying about swapping from a spring to fall wardrobe, bamboo will stay temperate throughout all seasons! Check out our favourite all weather piece the bamboo fleece West Wrap sweater.
Sturdy and Resiliant
Have you ever had to throw out a favorite garment due to pilling or unraveling? It’s so annoying! Fortunately, with bamboo fabric, you won’t have to worry about that any longer! It is super strong and resilient.
Won't Stretch or Shrink Up
Other common fashion mishaps are shrinkage or unwanted stretching. Either an item is unable to be worn anymore after drying, or by the end of the day the pants you were wearing are all of a sudden a size too big. There’s no need for concern with bamboo clothing though! It holds its shape quite nicely throughout the day.
More Eco Friendly
The process used to make synthetic fibers is very harmful for our environment, and they are full of all kinds of yucky chemicals. Not only that, but most of it ends up in landfills and is basically plastic! Who wants that? Bamboo, however, not only produces fast with no harmful pesticides, but requires very little water to grow. The chemicals used in our bamboo clothing fabric closed loop mill system are filtered and reused to cause no environmental damage. It is also biodegradable and won’t pollute our beautiful planet.
Antibacterial and Antifungal Properties
Bamboo clothing fabric has amazing hypoallergenic properties, including being antibacterial and antifungal. It is also resistant to things such as mildew and other odors.
Natural UV Protection
In addition to being antibacterial and antifungal, bamboo fabric is also anti-static and provides natural UV protection! Keep your skin safe while still looking fashionable and being comfortable.
Long Lasting Colours
Due to being a natural fiber, bamboo not only takes dye incredibly well, but it holds it for a very long time without fading or bleeding! Bamboo fleece fabrics hold their colour for years of wash and wear like this bamboo legging in fleece that is one of our favourite pieces.
Often, natural fabrics such as linen or wool have special laundering instructions, and sometimes they are even dry clean only! On the other hand, most bamboo items simply require a gentle wash in cold water and then dried on low, or air dried in some cases. Easy-peasy!
