Naturally sustainable bamboo is soft, light and translucent making it the next generation in textile fibers. Bamboo is increasingly being embraced by fashion houses and retailers whose impetus is towards sheer and pliable fabrics for both men and women. Bamboo's inherent characteristics make it naturally moisture wicking without the need for chemical treatments. This allows the fabric to be washed a multitude of times without negating its absorbent properties. This is achieved by the microscopic gaps that permeate the fabric's fibre allowing moisture to be rapidly absorbed. Furthermore, bamboo is hypo-allergenic and UV resistant. This allows individuals with the most sensitive skin to feel comfortable year round. Bamboo's most esteemed characteristic is its natural sustainability. It requires no fertilizers or pesticides for its cultivation and grows rapidly and profusely without depleting the soil. As an added benefit, bamboo's intrinsic anti-bacterial qualities repel odours and toxins.
