Bamboo is considered a true sustainability champion.
It holds the record for being the world’s fastest growing plant and is naturally organic so needs no pesticides or fertilisers to grow. Growing this plant requires no additional water and it is capable of absorbing more CO2 per hectare than trees.
The crop can be broken down to create a super soft fabric with many practical perks. It is thermo-regulating, filled with micro-holes that help keep you warm in winter and cool in summer. It's also hypoallergenic which means it won't cling to, rub or irritate your skin.
Bamboo is 100% biodegradable.
We love bamboo clothing at CLOTH-ES and are currently stocking a brand called Boodywear. They focus on underwear and layers made from bamboo. How many times can you say soft in a minute?
Starting with the socks we have two different types. The Hidden Sock, perfect for trainers when you don’t want the edge of the sock to show, these also have a silicone pad at the top to prevent the usual slipping. Then we have the Work Sock, these are the most comfortable socks made from bamboo that we have come across.
We also have Boody tops and bottoms which feel amazing against the skin. Bamboo actually contains 70% natural silica, an organic compound that is essential for the body and works to keep your skin looking healthy and radiant. Bamboo extract can actually strengthen the skin, making it perfect for those suffering from acne.
