Like hemp, bamboo is another highly sustainable crop as it does not claim farming land, grows very fast and needs minimal care. It is a much better CO2 extractor and oxygen emitter than trees, and all bamboo products are completely biodegradable and recyclable.
Our bamboo fabrics are made with both bamboo fibers and bamboo pulp. They are soft and silky to the touch, drape well, and possess properties of excellent moisture absorption and permeability.
The raw material bamboo is certified organic. Our bamboo yarn is certified by Oeko-Tex Standard 100 which is safe even for baby products. In addition, our fabrics meet international Restricted Substance Limits standards.
While bamboo fabrics have become increasingly popular, bamboo pulp-made fabric (also known as bamboo viscose) has been facing controversy with questions raised about its production methods, which are similar to wood pulp rayon’s. Concerns have been raised about the safety of the chemicals used in bamboo viscose making and the pollution that may result from their use. We’ve been working very closely with our suppliers to produce fabrics in an ecologically responsible manner with minimal environmental impact.
To this end, there have been improvements in extraction and renewal treatments for wastewater, including an advanced floating air treatment system that has been installed that removes up to 99% of the suspended solids, reclaiming the treated water. Our contract yarn supplier executes strict controls on safety operations and exhaust emissions.
