Bamboo has many traits that make it better than synthetic fabrics, it is cheaper than silk and cashmere but it has the same comfortable luxurious feel and the ability to drape as they do. Bamboo fabric is very durable, very absorbent and easy to care for. It can be laundered and is biodegradable and the bamboo plant which is a grass and not a tree is one of the planet’s most sustainable resources. Bamboo plantations are great for reducing greenhouse gasses. The processing of bamboo into a soft substance that can be combed out and made into yarn is done with the use of natural enzymes. Bamboo material absorbs 60% more moisture than cotton, is breathable and also has an antibacterial nature which is reassuring when close to the skin.
