WHAT IS BAMBOO?

Bamboo textiles are cloth, yarn, and clothing made out of bamboo fibres. While historically used only for structural elements, such as bustles and the ribs of corsets, in recent years a range of technologies have been developed allowing bamboo fibre to be used in a wide range of textile and fashion applications. Modern bamboo clothing is clothing made from either 100% bamboo yarn or a blend of bamboo and cotton yarn. The bamboo yarn can also be blended with other textile fibres such as hemp or even spandex.

“Bamboo fabrics are much softer than the softest cotton, bamboo material have got a natural shininess to the surface and they  definitely feel similar to silk materials or cashmere materials…”
