Why is Bamboo Sustainable?

So as you know our ‘Retrograde’ collection is mostly made from Bamboo, so some facts about why this fabric is so great for the environment!

  • Did you know Bamboo releases 35% more 02 than an equivalent plant!

  • Bamboo fabric is a natural textile made from the pulp of bamboo grass. The bamboo used to produce fabrics (not the same as Panda food) is easily replenished and requires no pesticides to grow.

  • Bamboo is considered one of the most sustainable plants because it grows quickly and does not require chemicals or irrigation, and biodegrades more quickly than oil-based synthetics.

Some perks of Bamboo:

  • Antibacterial - keeps you odor free and feeling and smelling fresh

  • Highly sweat absorbent (Pulls moisture from skin for evaporation - moisture wicking) - keeps you dry

  • Powerfully insulating - keeps you cooler in summer and warmer in winter

  • One of the softest fabrics on the planet you'll love the way it feels

  • Naturally UV protectant - protect yourself from skin cancer

  • Hypoallergenic - natural bamboo does not cause allergic reactions

  • Most eco-friendly fabric on the planet - help save your planet
