You may have heard of clothing made from cotton or hemp, but did you know bamboo could also be turned into fashion? Wearing and supporting bamboo clothes has a lot of benefits, for the environment and also for you.
Bamboo clothing is insanely soft, this is because the structure of the bamboo is round in nature which makes it less stiff against your skin. It feels amazing to wear, and it also is more sweat resistant than other types of fabrics which is one reason it’s so popular for athletic clothing. Bamboo clothes have very good ventilation because of the microscopic holes in the fibers.
Bamboo clothing is also hypoallergenic. If you have sensitive skin or any fabric allergies then bamboo is for you. It doesn’t cause irritation to the skin like some other types of fabric can. Also, because of that softness mentioned earlier, it can be just generally less irritating to wear for long periods of time.
Bamboo is amazing to wear because of all of its benefits, but it is also really good for the environment. It is more sustainable than cotton and many other synthetic materials commonly used to make clothing. So, let’s help negate some of the harmful effects of fast fashion and switch to the greener (and comfier) bamboo fabrics!
