Bamboo Fabric – What’s the big deal?

The Hype Around Bamboo

If you’re in the loop, then we’re sure you’ve heard that bamboo is ALL of the rage. As with most trends, it’s easy to wonder: “Is this really worth the hype?” or “Is it as practical as it is stylish?” We have come to tell you that with bamboo, it IS. 

There are six main reasons why bamboo is one of the primary fabrics in our kids’ wardrobes. 

It’s eco-friendly

If you’re an avid recycler and have given plastic straws the kick to the curb, then the next step in your mission to save the world is sustainable fashion and eco-friendly fabrics. 

Bamboo is your first stop when looking for eco-friendly fabrics. Bamboo is the fastest-growing plant on earth, and nasty pesticides aren’t required during their harvest. 

Not to mention, bamboo is both strong and durable – which means that your child’s favourite onesie will stand the test of time. 

It’s moisture-wicking 

Bamboo is more absorbent than cotton or viscose. It can take on up to three times its weight in water and naturally pulls moisture away from the skin. 

It’s breathable

The micro-holes that naturally occur in the bamboo fabric make it an extremely breathable option! This structure is perfect for keeping you cool on hot days. 

It’s SO soft 

Bamboo is soft like cashmere. It is smooth – without being slippery like satin or silk – making it perfect for a baby’s sensitive skin.

It’s anti-bacterial

Let’s face it: Babies and children can get into EVERYTHING. Bamboo fibre has a natural anti-microbial agent. Despite the mess your kids get in, you can have peace of mind knowing that their clothing is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and hypoallergenic. 

It’s easy to wash

Say goodbye to the dry cleaner! By washing your bamboo fabrics in cold to warm water, they will retain all of their unique qualities. If you’re in a rush and don’t have time to hang dry, you can machine dry on low.
