Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants in the world. It can grow up to 3 feet in a day and if you are observant, you can even see it with your naked eyes. While Bamboo was used just for structural aspects historically, an array of technological developments over the years have helped use bamboo fiber in a broad range of fashion and textile applications. Modern-day bamboo clothes are developed by blending pure bamboo yarn with other yarns like cotton or even spandex and hemp.
How is bamboo different from regular cotton?
Many are under the false impression that bamboo and cotton clothing have the similar features. But did you know? Bamboo wicks 40% more moisture than regular organic cotton once it's converted into fabric. Unlike cotton, bamboo fabric pulls sweat away from the skin much faster and keeps you comfortable and dry for a long time. So, you won't remain sweaty for long. Furthermore, Bamboo reins over Cotton with various benefits such as:
- It’s softer than Cotton, some say, it’s softer than egyptian cotton
- It’s naturally 3 degrees cooler
- It is a natural anti-microbial fabric, which means no bacteria or fungus
- Helps regulate body temperature
- Has natural micro-pores improving breathability
- And, is known to have higher durability
Now that you know some benefits about bamboo fabric, let's get to know the top reasons why you need bamboo clothing in more detail.
Its odor free
Bamboo is naturally odor-resistant and anti-bacterial. That's because bamboo possesses a bacteriostatic and anti-fungal bio-agent known as 'Bamboo Kun' that helps it grow and flourish in the natural habitat without the need for any fertilizers or pesticides. This quality of the bamboo plant stays in its fabric form. Resultantly, your bamboo clothes keep you smelling and feeling fresh and odor free for long, making them more suitable for harsh summers, active lifestyle and workout sessions like yoga, workout and even everyday wear.

Its naturally UPF-50+
The Bamboo fibers are naturally UV resistant and can block around 97.5% of the harmful UV radiations. That, therefore, makes it a perfect material to have on your skin during hot summer days, when you are highly exposed to the sunlight.
It's soft on the skin
As the bamboo fibers don't undergo any chemical treatment, they're naturally soft and smoother on the skin. That makes bamboo garments hypoallergenic and ideal for those who witness allergic reactions to other fibers like hemp or wool. It is for this reason, bamboo is gaining increasing popularity, and also why Lavos embarked on the path to enhance every life experience of the wearer by producing high-quality bamboo performance clothing.

Bamboo fiber is essentially known for its natural texture and shine that gives the clothing a luxurious appearance so it is bound to impress people who are regular cotton wearers.
