New Year - New Fabric

Bamboo is the new eco-fabric.

Grown Organically without using any pesticides or fertilizers, as the plants natural anti-fungal antibacterial agent “Bamboo Kuhn” means it is seldom attacked by pests or pathogens.
Bamboo textiles are made of Moso Bamboo– not the type of Bamboo that Panda's eat, so you have no need to worry about using the Panda's food supply.Bamboo is in fact a very fast growing grass and can be harvested every 3 or 4 years and then renews itself without need or replanting.

In its cultivation it uses far less water than cotton.The yield from an acre of bamboo is 10 times greater than the yield you get from cotton. It is a fully sustainable crop.

There are some Bamboo/Cotton mixes now on offer, but why go for a mixture when you can have 100% bamboo, with all it's benefits? Bamboo Fabric is Hypoallergenic and biodegradable. In cultivation it absorbs more CO2 and produces 35% more oxygen than an equivalent area of trees.Bamboo fabric is ideal for bed linen. It is a wonderful light and soft fabric, softer than cotton with a silk like drape and a beautiful silky lustre. It is a very strong fabric and with care will last many years.
