WHAT IS BAMBOO FABRIC

In the textile industry, the term “bamboo fabric” refers to a number of different textiles made from the bamboo plant. Bamboo has been used for thousands of years but different cultures all over the globe.

Historically in Asia, bamboo was originally used for the hand-made products of paper. However, it is only in recent years that the extraction of the bamboo fiber has been perfected to turn the pulp into a usable fiber that is woven in fabric for cloth.

BENEFITS OF USING BAMBOO FABRIC

Bamboo fabric are similar in feel to the softness of silk. Since bamboo fabrics are produced without chemicals, they are naturally smoother, making it non-irritating to the skin. Bamboo fabric is hypoallergenic, making it an excellent fabric for those who have allergies or have sensitive skin. 

Bamboo is antibacterial and anti-fungal due to its bacteriostatic bio-agent called the “Bamboo Kun”. This beneficial quality means that the textile will naturally kill bacteria that accumulate on the skin for natural wear, making the wearer feel fresher and odor-free throughout the day.

Unlike any other natural fibers, bamboo is extremely breathable. The cross-section of the bamboo fiber is covered in micro-gaps, giving the fabric a high level of moisture absorption and ventilation. It is also anti-static and UV protectant by cutting out nearly 98% of harmful UV.
