Bamboo is Better for You and the Environment


Silky and soft to the touch, but not slippery. Naturally breathable with the ability to absorb moisture. Organically thermal regulating. Will not adhere to the human body. Warm in winter. Cool in summer.

These are just some of the benefits of bamboo fabric. But what about cotton?

What about Cotton?

Egyptian cotton has reigned as king of cotton for generations due to its softness and durability. But do cotton sheets have natural antibacterial properties? Are they hypoallergenic and resistant to bacteria build-up?

The short answer is, no. Although cotton is gentle to the skin, it does not have any special health benefits like bamboo. And if being more comfortable and healthier isn’t enough, bamboo fabrics are exceptionally sustainable.

Bamboo is called the new cotton.

Bamboo requires no pesticides or irrigation to grow and replenishes itself in 3-5 years. This makes bamboo very cost-effective to grow, plus it adds 30 percent more oxygen to Earth’s atmosphere than other plants or trees.
