Can you think of another material that can be used to make super soft clothing but that can also be hard enough to protect your smartphone, while at the same time being about as eco-friendly as it gets...well that’s bamboo...a true champion among plants.
Bamboo holds the world record for being the fastest growing plant - some species can grow to the height of a double decker bus in a week! It's naturally organic, needing neither pesticides nor fertilisers to thrive, and bamboo requires no additional water to grow.
Bamboo covers vast areas as it’s a grass species and can absorb more CO2 per hectare than trees. There’s over 1,000 species of bamboo, we use the Moso species for our products - and don’t worry this species is not eaten by Pandas!
Bamboo can be broken down to create a super soft fabric that feels like a cross between silk and cashmere. It’s thermo-regulating, filled with micro-holes that help keep the wearer warm in winter and cool in summer, and hypoallergenic; it can sit next to the skin and won’t cling, rub or irritate. It’s also 100% biodegradable.
In its natural form bamboo has a stunningly beautiful grain which is very hard, so is perfect for making our fashionable accessory products.
