Whether you need basic T-shirts, yoga wear or a new beach look, why not go for bamboo this time? I have recently discovered this amazing fabric – and I am hooked.

bamBamboo has been used for centuries in all sorts of constructions, including hats, shoes or the ribs of corsets. In recent years a range of technologies have been developed allowing bamboo fibre to be used in a wide range of textile and fashion applications. A great development, as fabric made from bamboo is better for the environment, incredibly soft, smooth and luxuriously comfortable – and has some important advantages:

‘Bamboo Dry’ – absorbs and evaporates sweat in a split second:  Moisture wicking.

‘Bamboo Thermo-control’ – bamboo fabric is highly breathable in hot weather and also keeps you significantly warmer in the cold than traditional fabrics.  Performance baselayers for all conditions.

‘Bamboo Antibacterial’ –  bacteria don’t live well in this fabric.  So it doesn’t get smelly.

imgsize‘Bamboo Anti-static’ – so it sits very well next to your skin, not clinging to it.

‘Bamboo UV protection’ – it cuts out 98% of harmful UV rays, so perfect for holiday/travelling cover-ups.

‘Bamboo Sensitive’ – For sensitive or allergy prone skin, bamboo is perfect; it’s also anti-fungal;  many people say it’s the only solution they’ve found for problem skin.
