Why work with bamboo textiles?
The bamboo fibre has a naturally smooth and round structure, which makes the fabric softer than cotton or linen. The softness is often compared to the feeling of silk and cashmere.
The bamboo fabric is breathable and adjusts to the body temperature thanks to the millions of micro gaps in the fibres. The thermo regulating properties keep you warm in cold climates and cool in hot climates.
The substance called bamboo kun is a naturally inherent anti-bacterial bio-agent found in the cells of the bamboo. Research has shown that 70% of the bacteria attempting to grow in the bamboo fabric, is not able to survive due to bamboo kun. This has led bamboo to its increased popularity as the healthier choice of fabric.
The natural bio-agent bamboo kun inhibits odor-producing bacteria from growing and spreading in the fabric. The thermo regulating properties of bamboo regulate body temperature while wicking away moisture, allowing the fabric to remain fresh and hygienic.
amboo fabric is highly absorbent and breathable. It wicks away water from the skin three to four times faster than cotton. The soft and smooth fabric allows the skin to breathe while keeping it fresh and dry.
