To the average person, the idea of bamboo clothing may sound a bit unusual. After all, isn’t bamboo a stiff, reedy plant that’s used in construction, home renovation, and furniture manufacturing? It certainly is. And that intriguing fact really highlights the inventiveness of modern manufacturing as well as the versatility of this incredible natural resource. The idea that the same plant that’s used to create sturdy furniture, countertops and flooring can be transformed into soft, comfortable and attractive clothing that offers unique benefits to both our planet and its inhabitants is truly a thrilling one.
Here are five benefits you’ll receive when you add bamboo clothes to your wardrobe:
Bamboo fabrics are among the softest and most comfortable fabrics you can buy. They’re so comfortable, in fact, that bamboo bedding, bamboo T-shirts, bamboo underwear, and even bamboo baby clothing are not only widely available but just as widely used. Clothing made from bamboo is also breathable, keeping you cooler in summer and warmer in winter thanks to its hollow microfibre structure.
Better Health & Hygiene
Clothing sourced from bamboo absorbs moisture, drawing it away from your body and thereby reducing odour from perspiration while minimizing skin irritation. At the same time, bamboo clothing resists germs due to its natural antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. That’s good news for all of us but especially for those who battle allergies or illness. How many other types of clothing do you know of that can actually claim to keep germs at bay?
UV protection is another benefit that will make you appreciate your bamboo outfit. Bamboo fabric blocks 97.5 percent of the sun’s harmful rays.
From sportswear to business wear and beyond, your bamboo outfits will help you cut a smart figure while making a uniquely attractive fashion statement. You’ll find many stylish clothing designs that use the aesthetic properties of bamboo fabric — including its softness, its drape and its silk-like texture and sheen — to their best advantage, creating clothing ranging from bamboo T shirts to bamboo evening gowns and everything in between. Today’s bamboo clothes can keep you right up there with the latest fashion trends. Clothing made from bamboo is also anti-static, a factor that shouldn’t be ignored in your efforts to make the best possible stylistic impression.
Bamboo fabric is more durable than cotton and should maintain its shape, attractiveness and structural integrity a great deal longer when properly cared for. Additionally, because bamboo fibres don’t trap odours, the bamboo items in your wardrobe won’t require washing as often as most other fabrics, a factor that can also significantly extend the life of your bamboo-sourced clothing.
A Sustainable Supply
Bamboo is one of the earth’s most sustainable natural resources. This amazing plant is practically self-proliferating, continuously sprouting new shoots from its dense
root system and not requiring replanting each year. In addition to being the world’s fastest-growing plant, bamboo needs very little water to grow (1/3 less than cotton requires) due to its highly efficient use of water. Nor does bamboo need fertilizer. In fact, the plant typically provides benefits to the soil in which it is grown. Bamboo also requires only 1/10 the land area to produce a crop volume that's equivalent to that of cotton.
Bottom Line on Bamboo
Today’s bamboo clothing lines have a great deal to offer health, fashion and eco-conscious consumers. From bamboo underwear and bamboo diapers to some of the most fashionable garments on the market, clothing made from bamboo is definitely making its mark.
