Bamboo fabric is made from the pulp of bamboo. It is naturally porous and highly water absorbent, able to take up to three times its weight in water. In bamboo fabric, this translates to an excellent wicking ability that absorbs moisture and pulls it away from the skin, keeping you cooler and drier than synthetics or cotton.
The soft, smooth texture, and superior durability of the bamboo is similar to silk, but more practical, because it is washable. Because it is naturally antimicrobial, bamboo retains its anti-fungal, anti-bacterial nature even after processing into fabric and numerous washes. The plant itself is very quick growing and does not usually require the use of pesticides and herbicides to thrive. As a result, plantations can easily be kept organic and replanted yearly to replenish stocks.
The versatility of bamboo fabric makes it an excellent choice for clothing designers exploring alternative textiles. Bamboo Performance Technology ™ combines the best of Nature with a patent-pending fabric finishing process

As soft as silk, half the price and fast-growing without water, Bamboo is simply the fastest growing, high yield, low input crop in the world.
Bamboo thrives naturally: The yield per hectare is 10 times greater than cotton and the input of water, fertilisers and other resources is almost zero. It’s a grass too, so it doesn’t need replanting, which helps reduce topsoil erosion. It grows up to a yard a day in places, efficiently pulling in sunlight and greenhouse gases and converting it into biomass. For these reasons, Bamboo has a lot of potential for sustainability.
