London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) August 11, 2009 -- Bamboo is the latest and hottest sustainable eco-fabric that has become the essential part of the todayâs fashion industry because of its luxurious softness, smooth hand, flowing and gentle drape and easy price. Bamboo clothing is an excellent organic choice and it has many benefits and advantages over cotton. Bamboo fabric is softer than cotton with a texture similar to silk. Bamboo clothing doesn't just feel great on your skin-- it's also a great choice for the environment too.
The environmental benefits of bamboo clothing are numerous. Bamboo is one of the most sustainable resources our planet has to offer; it's an extremely rapid grower which can grow without use of pesticides and herbicides. It requires very little water and can survive drought conditions as well as flooding. Bamboo plant is self replenishing and new shoots are continuously growing, ready to replace the old ones. And because bamboo forests are so dense, they produce up to 40% more oxygen than a typical hardwood forest! Fast growing and quick spreading, it improves the soil and stops erosion. The production of bamboo fabric and clothing therefore has a lower impact on the environment than conventional cotton farming methods.
Bamboo is actually a tropical grass, from which the fabric is created from pulp. The bamboo fiber fabric production flow is: bamboo -> thick pulp -> fine pulp -> bamboo fiber -> bamboo yarn -> fabric. The fabric is bleached without the use of chlorine. Bamboo fabric is easy to dye and is done so without the use of harsh chemicals and using methods which use less water than conventional dyeing methods. It is perfect for clothing, towels and sheets. A super absorbent fiber, bamboo wicks away moisture from the skin, making it one of the most comfortable fabrics around, keeping you dry and odour free. Pure bamboo clothes can dry twice as fast as cotton clothes and can be worn all year round as they keep you cool in summer and warm in winter. As soft as silk, and with a similar drape, organic bamboo garments are more practical because they are durable and much less expensive and versatile.
Bamboo clothing has a soft, natural sheen that is easy to care for and needs no bleach or fabric softener. Bamboo t-shirts are very popular because of their thermal regulating, anti-fungal and anti-static characteristics which keep wearer cool, dry, odor free and comfortable, rather than sticky, in hot weather. Bamboo baby clothes are ideal for infants and toddlers as they are made of a natural fiber which 'breathes' and is soft to touch, like silk. Bamboo is also cruelty-free, so it's perfect for vegans in search of high quality, luxurious vegan clothing.
Economical, ecological, aesthetically pleasing, comfortable, and long-lasting, bamboo fabric is obviously going to be the way of the future. Soft, breathable, naturally antibacterial and anti fungal, it contains an agent, "bamboo kun", that prevents bacteria from cultivating on it. Bamboo fabrics also have natural UV protection and the best thing about bamboo clothing is that they never lost their qualities during processing or repeated washings.
