Bamboo clothing - bamboo fabric is luxuriously soft and feels like silky cashmere.
Naturally Organic - bamboo is grown without pesticides or fertilisers, unlike conventional cotton which uses 25% of all the worlds pesticides for only 10% of the argricultural land mass. Our bamboo canes are organically sourced and our bamboo yarn is Oeko-Tex 100 certified. Our organic cotton is certified by GOTS.
Sustainable - Moso bamboo is one of the worlds fastest growing plants, growing up to a metre in a day. Bamboo is a grass, so once cut it will regenerate quickly without the need for replanting (in the same way as your garden lawn). It grows very densely and so the yield per acre is excellent in comparison to cotton.
Eco-friendly - one of the most positive things about bamboo is that it absorbs 35% more carbon dioxide than equivalent stands of trees. More bamboo would help to cut the globally rising levels of carbon dioxide and help in the fight against global warming.
Absorbent - bamboo absorbs up to 60% more water than cotton. This makes it an excellent choice for towels and bathrobes.
Breathable - the porous nature of the fibre makes it breathable and extremely comfortable against the skin.
Thermo-regulating - keeps the wearer warm in cool weather.
Hypoallergenic - bamboo's organic and natural properties make it non-irritating so perfect used in baby wear for babies extra sensitive skin.
