Why wear bamboo?

BAMBU is your favourite online shop that brings you clothing made of bamboo, a luxuriously soft and silky fabric, which is naturally antibacterial, absorbs humidity and is also eco-friendly.

If you appreciate clothing made of natural fibers, you will be thrilled to know the amazing benefits of bamboo:

Antibacterial & hypoallergenic

The bamboo fiber has antibacterial, hypoallergenic and odour-free properties.
Researchers from Tokyo University have found out that bamboo contains an ingredient called "bamboo kun". It has antibacterial properties, which protects the plant against microbes,fungi and mites. Tests have shown that, due to this characteristic, the bamboo fiber maintains the same properties as the plant itself, being able to destroy up to 70% of the bacteria. So, the bamboo clothes will prevent unpleasant smells, even after extended wearing.
All these properties prove that bamboo is much more suitable than cotton when it comes to the production of underwear, socks, pajamas, sport equipment, clothes for people with sensitive skin or prone to allergies (ex. pregnant women and children), and also for bed linen, towels, bathrobes.

Silky touch

Get ready to fall in love with this textile, as delicate and soft as silk. The bamboo clothes will perfectly suit your body due to its' elasticity, being one of the most comfortable fabrics you will ever wear.

On the plus side, the bamboo cloth does not wrinkle or electrify, having anti-static properties.


Thermoregulation

Thermoregulation is ensured by the fabric’s behaviour under the action of several physical factors: humidity, temperature and air circulation. Bamboo fabric can absorb and evaporate human sweat in a split second. Because the cross-section of bamboo fiber is filled with various micro-gaps and micro-holes, bamboo fabric can absorb humidity and has the capacity to retain up to 3 times its weight. This helps removing the humidity from the skin, facilitating evaporation. The textile from bamboo fiber has a power of absorption of up to 4 times higher than cotton has. So, bamboo clothes offer temperature control, being comfortable to wear during the hot season, as well as during cold season. It is ideally worn directly on the skin, all day long, no matter the season.


Natural UV protection

The bamboo fabric filters up to 98% of harmful radiations, offering natural protection against UV rays.

Eco-friendly

The bamboo plant, as well as the bamboo clothes are 100% biodegradable. The impact of bamboo cultures is reduced, as it is the plant with the fastest growing rate on earth (up to 1 meter/day). While cotton cultivation takes a lot of time, needs a lot of water and human resources and it is usually not possible without the use of pesticides, herbicides and other harmful substances, the bamboo plants grows naturally and does not need human maintenance. Bamboo does not need additional watering (the rain is enough), protection against insects (because of the natural agent it contains - the 'bamboo-kun', which prevents development of bacteria, fungi or mites) or other agriculture activities.
Bamboo does not need to be replanted. The sprouts are cut at the base and the bamboo plant grows again from the new buds.
Comparing to the common forest areas, the bamboo plantations can absorb carbon dioxide 5 times more and release 35% more oxygen. The more bamboo clothes we will wear, the bigger bamboo plantations will become, which will lead to less greenhouse gas and more oxygen released by bamboo into the atmosphere.
