While adorable panda bears have been feasting on bamboo for generations, humans have just recently joined in on the party and started making cool products out of this super crop. Bamboo as a fabric is super sustainable because the crop is fast-growing and doesn’t require near as much water to grow as cotton. What’s cooler is that the crop doesn’t need any insecticides or fertilizers to grow. Sounds like a power plant to us! Here are some of the main reasons why you should diversify your wardrobe and buy clothes made from bamboo:
- Stay dry all day
Bamboo is known to be both water-wicking and water-absorbent, thus keeping you dry through all those sweaty situations.
- Superior softness when compared to cotton
Bamboo is probably as smooth as silk. Some even describe bamboo as one of the most luxurious and light fabrics ever and the greatest thing about it is that it doesn’t break the bank!
We already mentioned some of the benefits of bamboo over cotton. Bamboo is an eco-friendly fabric and emits fewer pollutants into our environment. Bamboo also grows naturally in many areas around the world so resources are plentiful.
This fabric has insulating properties that keep you warm during the winter and cool during the summer. It doesn’t get much better than this.
- Antibacterial and Hypoallergenic
This versatile fabric is naturally antibacterial and is great for people with allergies and sensitive skin.
Do you all know of any brands here in India that use bamboo as a fabric? We would love to know about them!
