Bamboo fiber is an amazing fabric that, when blended with viscose and cotton to give structure, has unparalleled advantages, including strength, versatility, and luxurious softness.
- Naturally soft - Bamboo apparel is softer than cotton, and it has a natural sheen like silk and cashmere. Bamboo drapes like silk and satin, yet is less expensive and more durable.
- Allergy reduced - Bamboo’s organic and naturally smooth fiber properties are non-irritating to the skin, making it ideal for people with skin sensitivities or other allergies and dermatitis.
- Thermal regulating - Bamboo clothing's excellent wicking properties also make it the ideal choice for post-exercise apparel.
- Breathable - The porous qualities of bamboo fiber account for its breathability; clothing made of bamboo resists clinging during hot weather or exercise.
- Anti-bacterial - Bamboo fabric contains a naturally occurring anti-microbial agent, kun, that prevents bacteria from cultivating on it, which means it helps keep you odor-free.
Tencel is well known for its outstanding physical characteristics – silky softness and luxurious drape. It is perfectly smooth, with depth of colour, and excellent moisture absorbency. It is naturally hygienic, and it inhibits the growth of bacteria.
- Environmentally friendly - Tencel is the most environmentally friendly man-made cellulosic fibre available today. It is produced exclusively from the wood pulp of responsibly farmed trees, certified by the Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC), and the fibre carries the Pan European Forest Council (PEFC) quality seal.
- Toxin free - The only chemical used in the Tencel manufacturing process is the non-toxic solvent, amine oxide, that allows closed-loop processing. Up to 99% of the chemical is perpetually reused, minimizing the impact on the environment, and conserving water and energy. The European Union awarded this process the Environmental Award in the category of “Technology for Sustainable Developments."
