Bamboo is very special. It is a fast growing, self-regenerating natural resource and is without doubt one of the most important non-wood forestry products and one of the most important agricultural plants in the world. Technically, bamboos are grasses belonging to the subfamily Bambusoideae and over 1200 different species grow world-wide. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world and is thus an eco-friendly and sustainable resource. The yield of an acre of bamboo equals 10 times the amount you would get from cotton. There is no need to use pesticides or fertilizers as bamboo flourishes naturally. In addition, it is 100% biodegradable. Last but not least, it does not require a lot of water. This is just the opposite for cotton, which needs a huge amount of water to grow.
So why choose to dress your baby in bamboo clothing? There are many reasons to choose this fabric as your little one is adapting to their new world, and here we have listed a few:
Hypo-allergenic and antibacterial: Bamboo is naturally hypo-allergenic and antibacterial and it prevents allergies, asthma and skin irritations. Bamboo is an exceptional choice for parents that face the challenges of sensitive skin conditions, for example eczema.
Eco-friendly: For all eco-minded parents out there, you will be happy to learn that bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world and as a result of this, bamboo is one of nature's most sustainable resources as it is naturally regenerative. The many uses and benefits of bamboo continue to increase as individuals turn to organic, eco-friendly products. One area that recently has seeing tremendous growth is bamboo baby clothing as parents become more and more aware of the fantastic benefits of organic products to both their baby’s health and to the environment, and bamboo baby clothes are a perfect fit.
Softness: If you by now are starting to get curious to learn how bamboo looks and feels, you are in for a pleasant surprise. Bamboo sometimes is compared to to silk or cashmere and it is softer than the softest cotton. If you have ever worn a piece of clothing made of bamboo you know how pleasant and soft it feels on your skin and this is really the luxury softness you want for you baby.
Thermo regulating: Bamboo fabric absorbs water 3-4 times better than cotton, keeping your baby comfortable in hot weather. The fabric stays 2-3 degrees cooler in hot temperature and gives more warmth in cold temperatures, which is incredibly important for newborns as they naturally have difficulty keeping a consistent and comfortable body temperature. Bamboo clothing will keep your baby cool in the summer and warm in the winter - a clever and economical choice on your behalf.
UV Protection: Bamboo fiber fabrics have natural UV protection of 50+ so you can rest assured that you little one will not burn from the sun.
Natural and Chemical-Free: Bamboo is grown without using pesticides or chemical fertilisers. Bamboo fiber is 100% biodegradable.
Bamboo fabric is softer than the softest cotton. Clothing made with 100% bamboo would feel heavenly to wear but would not be as durable as if you mix it with cotton. In order to maintain optimal fabric durability and stability, we use a fabric made of 70% bamboo combined with 30% cotton. This allows our bamboo range to last longer while retaining all the benefits that bamboo fabric offers.
While bamboo is still a relatively new textile to the marketplace, its benefits are unbeatable. With all the positive benefits to your baby as well as to the environment, we hope you are as excited as we are.
