Bamboo - the eco friendly low allergy fabric option

Bamboo is the latest eco-fabric sensation, but this fabric has more to offer than just environmental sustainability - bamboo fabric worn next to baby skin can make a huge difference baby's skin irritations & eczema. Bamboo fabric is also incredibly soft with fantastic wellbeing properties.


Bamboo fabric is heaven-sent when comes to baby’s health and wellbeing. Bamboo fibre contains a natural antibacterial agent called Bamboo Kun enabling it to grow naturally without the use of pesticides or fertilisers. “Bamboo kun” is maintained in the fabric to produce a hygienic garment which smells fresher for longer. Bamboo fabric is also highly absorbent it is 3-4 times more absorbent than cotton, it is breathable and has thermostatic properties to regulate temperature - keeping baby warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

Bamboo is an incredible plant, technically it is the fastest growing grass in the world, with a growth rate of 1-4 feet per day depending on the species and other conditions. Bamboo does not require pesticides, chemicals, or irrigation to grow, it thrives in its natural environment. It continually sends up new shoots after harvesting without the need for replanting. It can be harvested every 4-5 years, as opposed to 25-70 years for commercial tree species. Bamboo is great for the environment it removes CO2 from the atmosphere and produces over 30% more oxygen than an equivalent stand of trees. Bamboo is 100% biodegradable.
