Why buy bamboo fabric?
Out of respect for nature and people working in a sector which is adversely affected by industrialization.
The textile sector is not only one of the biggest polluters due to its extensive use of chemicals, it also uses enormous amounts of water during production and unfortunately often employs people under very poor working conditions.
Bamboo grows rapidly, needs very little water & no fertilizer, or pesticides, and sequesters a large amount of carbon dioxide, absorbing five times more carbon dioxide and 35% more oxygen than similar plants. It’s also naturally regenerating, so harvesting bamboo still allows the plant to survive.
The lack of transparency in the textile industry makes it extremely difficult for the consumer to trace the origin of their fabrics. We believe it shouldn’t be that hard. In order to achieve this, we think consumers need easy access to sustainable and ethically produced fabrics without harming our planet, the people that produce them and our health.
