Bamboo is a sustainable resource
There are over 1200 species of bamboo on this planet. All our products are manufactured from the bamboo species, moso, which is not eaten by Pandas. While the creation of Bamboo fiber seems to have mystified a few and even spurred some erroneous reports on how bamboo fiber is manufactured, the process is really quite simple. Starch pulp is a refined product of bamboo through a process of hydrolysis-alkalization, then multiphase bleaching. The factories then process it into bamboo fiber. These processes are completely closed looped, which means that the release of byproducts into the environment is negligible.
The chemicals involved are "good" chemicals compared to the truly dangerous ones used to produce cotton and polyester. hydrolysis-alkalization is reactive but it is not toxic, i.e. it does not cause DNA damage, does not enter the food chain and is short lived because of its reactivity. It is easily neutralized into salt and water. Furthermore hydrolysis-alkalization is used as a washing agent for almost all organic cotton textiles and is certified by the global organic textile standards. The proof of the ecologically sound methods behind bamboo production is the fact that our viscose from Bamboo fabric is certified under Oeko‐Tex Standard 100, which has become the best known and most successful label for textiles tested for harmful substances.
It thrives naturally without the use of pesticides or the need for fertilizer. Bamboo can grow as much as 3 feet over night. The bamboo used in the production of textiles is plantation-raised bamboo. The significance of plantation raised bamboo is that the harvesting of the bamboo does not interfere with the habitat of Panda bears.
Because of its hollow fiber, bamboo has unusual breathing capabilities.
The fiber is filled with micro gaps and micro-holes which allows for better moisture absorption and ventilation than other fibers.
Bamboo fiber can absorb and evaporate perspiration quickly.
Bamboo fabric is anti-static and does not cling.
Among other benefits, bamboo takes in 5 times as much green house gas, and produces 35% more oxygen than an equivalent stand of trees. What an amazing natural source to replenish our fresh air and fight global warming!
Bamboo apparel products offer the following unique benefits and qualities:
It feels like cashmere or silk, it is extremely soft.
Bamboo apparel is comfortable, more breathable than cotton, fast drying, moisture-wicking, and thermal regulating. It will keep you cooler in the summer, and you can layer it to be warmer in the winter.
Bamboo is one of the world’s most prolific and fastest growing plants. It is inherently organic and is grown without pesticides or chemicals, and is 100% biodegradable.
No dry cleaning necessary. Launder in cool water on Gentle Cycle and tumble dry low. Stain removers may be used for stubborn stains. The use of bleach or liquid fabric softener is not recommended. Dryer sheets may be used. Remove from dryer promptly or line dry.
100% viscose from bamboo fiber fabric is characterized by its soft, silky feel. Silky-soft socks made from natural bamboo fiber are cool, breathable and luxurious and one of the newer environmentally friendly products to offer benefits to consumers and indigenous cultures alike. Highly absorptive and breathable, 100% Viscose from Bamboo fabrics contain natural agents that make them an excellent choice for any product that comes in direct contact with human skin.
AZO Free Dyeing
There are three systems of dyeing. Totally synthetic, naturally and Reactive. Reactive uses 90% less chemicals than fully synthetic dyeing.
Synthetic dyeing is one of the most polluting technologies in clothing manufacture. AZO's, the fixing agent used in most commercial synthetic dyeing, makes up 95% of the chemicals used in the industry. Reactive dyeing, on the other hand, is designed to fix the dye at a set temperature. This negates the use of AZO's - looking after the environment at the same time.
The Bamboo plant is a renewable resource, grown widely throughout rural Asia, with unique properties that are retained in the manufacture of bamboo fibers yarns and textiles. Bamboo plants have the ability to absorb up to three times their weight in water, and 100% Viscose from Bamboo fabrics provide the same superior “wicking” qualities, drawing sweat and moisture away from your skin to keep you cool and comfortable while you sleep.
Viscose from bamboo fiber is thinner than human hair and very soft because it has a round and smooth surface. Unlike some other natural fibers such as hemp and even wool, the intrinsic silkiness of bamboo sheets is unlikely to cause allergic reactions in individuals sensitive to other natural fibers. Exhaustive technological analysis has shown that viscose from bamboo fiber produces extremely consistent and stable textiles.
Bamboo fiber fabrics made of viscose from bamboo pulp fiber, are very easy to straighten and dye and have an excellent ability to absorb pigmentation. 100% Viscose from Bamboo fabrics will wear well and retain their vivid colors even after repeated washings.
Friendly to the environment, culturally and economically progressive, viscose from bamboo fabrics are an excellent, guilt-free way to pamper yourself with luxury.
We look forward to your order!
