The Benefits of Bamboo
- 26 Sep 2017
Why we love it, why the environment loves it, and why you’ll love it too.
Bamboo is one the world’s most incredible plants. Widely known as the fastest growing plant in the world, it has been used for centuries as a form of food, a traditional medicinal treatment, a building material, and more recently, has been innovatively transformed into a luxurious fibre which can be spun into yarn and woven into fabric.
So what’s at the root of our bamboo obsession? With a huge array of unique properties, bamboo fabric can be enjoyed by allergy sufferers, eco-warriors, indulgence aficionados and families alike. Here’s why we love bamboo, why the environment loves bamboo, and why you should too!
Why we love bamboo:
*Bamboo fabric is inherently antibacterial and odour resistant
*It has hypoallergenic properties and is dust mite resistant
*Bamboo fabric is naturally breathable, highly absorbent and has excellent moisture wicking capabilities
*With thermo-regulating properties, bamboo keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter
*Despite being lightweight and soft, bamboo is an incredibly durable fabric that lasts the test of time
Why the environment loves bamboo:
*Bamboo is an incredibly sustainable resource
*As one of the fastest regrowing plants in the world, bamboo is naturally resilient and abundant
*Bamboo requires minimal water to grow (usually relying on rainfall)
*Bamboo is inherently pest-resistant and does not require pesticides or fertilisers to sustain its growth
*Bamboo is carbon-neutral, absorbing carbon dioxide and producing more oxygen that most other trees
*Bamboo is naturally biodegradable, leaving a minimal carbon footprint for generations to come
Why you’ll love bamboo too:
*Aside from all these incredible qualities, bamboo fabric is also renowned for its luxurious, silk-like softness. With a natural lustre and cashmere touch, bamboo is a favourite for those who love a premium luxury fabric at an affordable price.
With all these incredible benefits, it’s no wonder that we’ve taken this super-fabric and produced a range of luxury products to suit everyday living. From luxurious sheet sets to a beautiful towel range to contemporary throws, there is a bamboo-rich product available for every style.
