To make our world greener and more environmental friendly, recently we have introduced for the first time eco friendly organic fashion scarf and wrap made of bamboo fabric. Here are some tips of why bamboo scarf is better for you and better for the environment.
Fabric made from bamboo is incredibly soft, smooth and luxuriously comfortable.
‘Bamboo Dry’ – absorbs and evaporates sweat in a split second. It doesn’t stick to the skin. Its extraordinary natural breathability keeps you comfortable and dry for longer.
‘Bamboo Thermo-control’ – bamboo fabric is highly breathable in hot weather and also keeps you significantly warmer in the cold. Keeping you more comfortable in all temperatures - ‘Air conditioned clothing’.
‘Bamboo Fresh’ – bamboo is antibacterial, forever. By killing almost all bacteria, bamboo stays fresher and odour free for longer, is more hygienic and healthier.
Bamboo clothing is strong and durable.
Repeated tests show this, and also that bamboo fibre has a high abrasion-proof capacity and also tenacity. The same bamboo used for scaffolding to build skyscrapers in Hong Kong was always going to be strong!
For sensitive or allergy prone skin, bamboo is perfect
-Lack of harsh chemical treatments which can irritate skin
-Fibre is smooth and round, so is a non-irritant
-Naturally occurring, antibacterial ‘bamboo kun’ resists the spread of bacteria on the skin without any adverse affects, such as abrasion or irritation.
-Bam garments achieved a score of 50 on the UPF scale (Ultraviolet Protection Scale), which amounts to a 98% reduction in UV activity reaching your skin.
Better for the environment:
Bamboo is 100% naturally grown, without assistance from man. Bamboo thrives naturally without using any pesticides or fertilizers. Bamboo fibre is 100% biodegradable. As the fastest growing plant in the world, bamboo grows to its maximum height in about 3 months and reaches maturity in 3-4 years. It spreads rapidly across large areas. Because of this, bamboo is known to improve soil quality in degraded and eroded areas of land. As a grass, bamboo is cut, not uprooted, also helping soil stability. Bamboo also can grow on hill slopes where nothing else is viable. The yield (i.e. the amount of product) you get from an acre of bamboo is 10 times greater than the yeld you get from cotton. In an age where land use is under enormous pressure this is huge. The water requirement for bamboo is minute, mainly just from what falls. As opposed to cotton, whose water requirement per shirt's-worth is huge.
If organic clothing made from bamboo becomes popular, it means more bamboo plantations, which means more photosynthesis and less greenhouse gas. “The greatest challenge facing mankind” would get just a little easier.
- Synthetic performance fabrics are made from petrochemicals, a non-renewable fossil fuel. They go to make clothes which get smelly really quickly.
- Organic clothing made from bamboo is nature's answer to our needs for everyday fabric, in an environmentally sustainable form. It's just our luck that it's so much better as well!
