Why Is Bamboo Good For Clothing?If you’ve looked into buying organic clothes for your baby or your children, you’ll have no doubt come across bamboo.  You’ve probably also wondered just why bamboo is so good for clothing and whether or not it is a material worth buying given the expense.

As with most organic clothes, bamboo tends to be more expensive than synthetic materials, but it offers plenty of positives and advantages that you won’t necessarily find in regular clothes.


Here are 8 of the key benefits of bamboo and why people turn to bamboo for clothing more and more

1. Strong and Soft

Bamboo is both strong and soft. Not only does this make bamboo fabric durable but it is also breathable and lightweight.  Those who wear bamboo clothing liken the feeling similar to that of silk or cashmere.  Some say bamboo is to cotton what cashmere is to wool – a more soft and luxurious feel.

2. Anti-Bacterial

Bamboo has a unique antibacterial quality due to an antimicrobial bio-agent called “bamboo kun” which is found naturally in the bamboo itself.  This makes bamboo  naturally antibacterial regardless of how often it is washed.  And because bacteria does not live well in bamboo it does not hold smells either.

3. UV Protection

Amazingly bamboo fabric helps to cuts out close to 98% of harmful UV rays.  This makes bamboo clothing the perfect option for keeping your children safe from the sun.

4. Organic

Bamboo is well known to be an organic material because it is grown without the use of pesticides or any other type of chemicals.

5. Absorbs Moisture

Another key feature of bamboo, like cotton, is that this is lightweight and helps to keep you drier longer.  The fabric absorbs moisture away from your skin.

6. Allergy Friendly

You hear about bamboo being the clothing of choice for babies and kids with skin sensitivities. This is because bamboo is naturally gentle. It is anti-static and the eco-friendly bamboo fibres do not irritate the skin.

7. Temperature Control

Babies don’t have the ability to regulating their body temperature when they are first born so opting for bamboo clothing acts as a natural thermal regulation.  It helps to keep bodies warm when it’s cold and cool when it is warm. In fact it performs well in all temperatures.

8. Natural

Bamboo not only grows naturally but bamboo fabric is 100% biodegradable. This eco-friendly option makes fabulous clothing that suits everyone.  If you are looking for a green option, bamboo is by far the best.  You’ll find bamboo garments, wraps, swaddles and blankets.


Bamboo in the Bedroom and Bathroom

Bamboo fabric is not just limited to clothing. You can find bamboo used in the bedroom and bathroom too.

  • Extra soft and durable sheets, pillowcases and doona covers – far softer than any high thread count cotton sheets.  They are also thermo-regulating so you’ll be warm in winter and cool in summer, naturally!
  • Towels are resistant to piling and shrinkage, super absorbent
