Blended Bamboo and Cotton Textile
Bamboo is a wonderfully sustainable plant and offers many environmental benefits. It regenerates very quickly (one year to full growth), it also grows densely, so its yield per acre is 30 times that of cotton. An acre of bamboo produces 35% more oxygen than that of a comparable acre of trees. It is drought tolerant and so far has not been proven to require irrigation. A huge organic benefit of bamboo is that it does not require pesticides or fertilizers. Bamboo as a textile is a fairly new development. The textile is not normally made from the fibers of the plant, but instead, a yarn is spun from the bamboo cellulose. Bamboo as an ingredient in textiles contributes to increased resistance to wear and overall long-term durability. Compared to cotton and/or polyester all on it's own, the addition of bamboo in a weave gives it a higher breaking tenacity, better moisture-wicking properties, and better moisture absorption. Our cotton/bamboo blend takes ink well, is very breathable, has a nice hand and because twill weave inherently drapes better than all other weaves, this fabric has a nice flow and good natural drape characteristics.
