Why is Bamboo Clothing so Great?

Like a lot of people, we hadn’t heard of bamboo as a fabric until a few years ago, and since then we have become bamboo bedazzled!

If we can get a piece of clothing made from bamboo, we do, it’s super soft, incredibly comfortable and sits well on pretty much anybody that wears it.

But what makes Bamboo such a great fabric?

Moisture Wicking

Bamboo fabric is highly absorbent, up to 3-4 times more so than cotton. It pulls moisture away from your body. This moisture can then evaporate, keeping you more comfortable.

Climate Control

Bamboo garments are highly breathable, so are cool in the heat, yet warm in the cold because of their cellulose structure, trapping warm air when required.

Anti Bacterial & Fungal

Bamboo fabric doesn’t allow bacteria to set up home very well, which is what makes some other performance clothing smell.

For sensitive or allergy prone skin, bamboo is perfect as it’s also anti-fungal. Many people say it’s the only fabric solution they’ve found for problem skin.

UV Protection and Anti-Static

Bamboo fabric cuts out up to 98% of harmful UV rays, making it perfect for covering up from the sun. It is sits well next to the skin without clinging to it due to it’s anti-static abilities.
