Besides being the main food source of adorable pandas, bamboo is an extraordinary natural resource that has been widely used across Asia. For centuries, Koreans have used bamboo salt for cooking and as a form of traditional medicine, which has now gained global popularity. Because it is a highly versatile natural resource, bamboo has also been an important material for constructions, transport, and more recently, an exceptional option for modern textile.
Here’s why bamboo clothing is better for you:
1. Wonderfully soft comfort
Imagine being wrapped in a soft, silky, and luscious fabric. Pamper your skin with the gentle touch of bamboo fabric that you just can’t get enough of.
2. Less stress over sweat
It’s good to sweat it out but it doesn’t necessarily feel or smell good, especially when you’re NOT at the gym. Natural fabric like bamboo fabric is an excellent option as compared to synthetic fabric and cotton because it's better at absorbing sweat and most importantly wicking away that moisture, so you feel less sticky and less icky.
3. Stay cool even when you’re under the hot sun
You won’t be craving for a breeze to cool off or pinching your t-shirt and fanning yourself with it because bamboo clothing offers excellent ventilation and helps to regulate temperature, so you feel good all day long. Bamboo fabric also offers natural UV protection up to 97.5%. Go ahead, dance in the sun.
4. A friendly option for sensitive skin
It’s tough living with sensitive skin or eczema, and it’s frustrating when your brand-new outfit causes you to go into an itching fit. Synthetic fabric, heat and sweat are among the main causes of irritating flare-ups. Naturally hypoallergenic, bamboo fabric is a game-changer. Bamboo fibers are made without chemical treatment and are naturally smoother, without sharp spurs to irritate the skin.
Fabric made of bamboo is eco-friendly.
5. Bamboo thrives organically
Inherently prolific and resilient, bamboo does not require fertilizers, so you don’t have to worry about harmful greenhouse gases and the eutrophication of our waterways. Bamboo is also pest-resistant in its nature, so no chemical pesticides are required for the growth of bamboo.
6. An environmental super-plant
Able to grow with rainwater alone/very little water, irrigation is not required for bamboo to grow at a remarkable rate. Did you know? Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants in the world! Making it a sustainable option for fabric production. Did we mention that it’s biodegradable too?
7. Improves air quality
You’re going to want to visit a bamboo farm after reading this to breathe in all that goodness. Because it’s pretty astounding that bamboo is capable of producing 30% more oxygen compared to the same amount of tree, all while absorbing more carbon dioxide too.
