Bamboo the magical fabric


Bamboo is one of the most eco-friendly fabrics on the planet. Bamboo, a type of tropical grass, found mainly in Asia, some parts of Africa and America, has an extensive rooting system that grows fast, naturally replenishing itself. It is also 100% biodegradable, the most renewable resource on our planet, and provides an abundance of usable oxygen making it a crucial element in the balance between oxygen and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

Due to advances in modern manufacturing bamboo can be produced into high quality material with a host of amazing benefits for everyone, but in particular for our babies. This amazing fabric is fast becoming one of the most popular choices in baby bedding, clothing and accessories across the world.

Benefits of Bamboo

Moisture Wicking

Bamboo fibre is highly absorbent and works by drawing moisture away from the skin, making this a great fabric choice for baby clothes and bedding, reducing the possibility of wet material rubbing and irritating your baby’s skin. Great for those little sweaty bundles of joy!

Anti-Bacterial and Anti-Fungal

Bamboo is naturally anti-bacterial as it has a natural property called bamboo kun that fights bacteria, meaning no nasties will be hiding away.

Breathable

Bamboo fabric is breathable, this promotes healthy skin as it doesn’t ‘cling’ or rub up against the skin causing irritation. Making it perfect for babies, eczema sufferers and those with sensitive skin!

Temperature Regulating

Bamboo fabric has the magical ability to help regulate body temperature, so baby bamboo clothing and bedding will help keep babies cool when it’s warm and warm when it’s cool!

Allergy Free

Many people are allergic to natural fibres, such as wool. Bamboo fabric however rarely has this effect on people. In fact, it’s quite the opposite due to the softer fibres! Bamboo is perfect for delicate and sensitive skin.

No Chemicals

Unlike cotton which is one of the most sprayed crops in the world, bamboo needs absolutely no pesticides, herbicides, fertilisers, (or any other chemical for that matter) to grow. No sprayed chemicals give us another reason to love bamboo- it’s better for the environment!

Helps Block Ultraviolet Rays

A number of studies suggest that bamboo naturally blocks the harmful ultraviolet rays from the sun. Whilst we wouldn’t advise to use this instead of sun cream, it’s another layer of protection for that delicate baby skin.

Energy Efficient

Not only is bamboo fabric highly sustainable and eco-friendly but it is known for it’s energy efficiency: Bamboo is machine washable in cool water and environmentally unfriendly and unhealthy fabric softeners are not needed or recommended.
