Traditionally used by furniture makers, bamboo has more recently been rediscovered as an exciting new source of fabric.
Bamboo fabric is incredibly soft with a silk-like feel, but is more durable and can be produced at a lower cost than silk.
Bamboo fabric is produced from the pulp of the leaves and inner part of the bamboo trunk. The individual fibres are filled with tiny holes and gaps making the fabric extremely absorbent and breathable – up to three times that of cotton. Bamboo fabric resists odours, keeping it fresher and less smelly for longer than many other fabrics. It is also hypoallergenic – perfect for those with sensitive skin.
We're excited about the benefits of bamboo fabric. If you're new to bamboo products we're sure that you'll soon be converted!
Super Soft – Bamboo fabric is among the smoothest fabrics, luxuriously soft with a feel like silky cashmere.
Absorbent & Moisture Wicking – The absorption, wicking and ventilation properties of bamboo are superior to that of cotton, helping you stay drier.

Sustainable Resource – Moso bamboo is one of the world’s fastest growing plants, up to a metre in a day. It grows very densely giving an excellent yield per acre compared to cotton and requires less water.
Naturally Grown – Bamboo thrives without the need for pesticides or fertilisers.
Easy on Water– Bamboo requires minimal water; natural rain is sufficient unlike other textile crops, particularly cotton.
Soil Stability – Bamboo is cut, not uprooted, allowing it to regrow for regular harvesting without replanting, aiding soil stability.
