Bamboo is a remarkable and highly versatile natural resource.
For many centuries it has been utilised in Asia in a range of uses, including in cooking, construction, transport, textiles and medicine.
It is only relatively recently that the Western world has discovered how bamboo offers a wide range of benefits and an eco-friendly solution to many of our modern requirements.
Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants in the world. Once harvested, bamboo can replenish itself within a year, and some species can grow up to 120cm per day. It’s a reluctant plant which doesn’t need any fertilisers or pesticides to boost its growth since bamboo is naturally pest-resistant.
Since bamboo requires no chemicals and very little water to grow, it is an environmental wonder-plant. Bamboo absorbs more carbon dioxide from the air than cotton. It also releases more oxygen into the environment which improves air quality. Bamboo is by far the greener option.
Bamboo fibre can be used to make exceptional modern textiles. Bamboo can also be blended with cotton, hemp or even Lycra as required.
Bamboo feels beautifully soft and pleasant to the touch. When compared in studies to cotton and polyester, it has been found to be stronger, have better moisture wicking properties and better absorption than the more commonplace Western materials.
Protect you and your loved ones from the sun’s rays in comfort.
The eco-friendly bamboo fibres do not irritate the skin. Gentler than manmade fibres bamboo is a natural solution for those with sensitive skin.
