Bamboo fabric has a soft silky texture similar to cashmere. It is breathable and extremely comfortable against the skin.
Bamboo fabric surpasses cotton in moisture absorption. Its criss-cross texture creates microscopic openings in the fibres, creating truly exceptional moisture absorption.
Tests have shown that bamboo absorbs 60% more moisture than cotton and dries 20% quicker, this makes it an obvious choice for towels and bathrobes.
Made from environmentally friendly woven bamboo. Our bamboo towelling is highly biodegradable and eco-friendly, having hardly any impact on the environment.
Contrary to cotton; bamboo can be cultivated naturally without the need for pesticides. It is one of the world’s fastest growing plants, growing up to one metre in a single day, ensuring a quick grow-cultivation cycle, and as bamboo is a grass, it will continue to grow once it has been cut, just like a lawn. Bamboo can also absorb 35% more Carbon Dioxide than equivalent fibres.
Our bamboo towelling is made from the highest quality East Asian bamboo. Compared to fibres originating from wood (viscose rayon) or other petro-chemical fibres (polyester), bamboo has an important advantage to offer: a short growth cycle and easy cultivation.
Anti-Bacterial by Nature
