About Bamboo

Bamboo belongs to the grass family, and although it is known to be one of the fastest-growing plants in the world.

According to the Guinness World Records, the fasting Bamboo plant grew up to 91 cm, about 31 inches per day; however, the growth rate is also dependent on species, the local soil, and climatic conditions.

Most Bamboo plants grow between 3 –10 cm (1.2–3.9 in) per day.

Uses of Bamboo In Clothing

For centuries Bamboo has been used in many forms.

During the Shang Dynasty, around 1600-1046 BC, the paper didn’t exist; weapons such as Bows and arrows were made from Bamboo while also using Bamboo as the writing medium.

Benefits of Bamboo:

  • Bamboo is one of the most Eco-friendly plants in the world—a Quick-growing, water-conserving plant.
  • No need for pesticides, fertilizers, or insecticides for its growth and protection as it is naturally pest–resistant.
  • Bamboo is much softer and better than Cotton or Lycra.
  • The plantation of bamboo tends to absorb more Carbon Dioxide and greenhouse gas and produce 30% more oxygen than the same amount of trees.
  • Bamboo grows faster and uses less space and water than cotton; this results in being harvested quicker.
  • Antibacterial, and anti-fungal to make it odor-resistant.
  • Hypoallergenic – the fiber in bamboo is an excellent option for sensitive skin and allergies, which are much gentler than those irritating fibers that are human-made.
  • Moisture-wicking and breathable that keeps you dry.
  • Anti-static helps with that unwanted clinging feeling.
  • Thermo-regulating, regardless of the weather will keep you warm in winter, and cool in summer, and give you the comfort your body needs.

  1. Great content about bamboo and now I have better picture about the benefit of fabrics made from bamboo. I realized it is eco-friendly to produce and much softer than traditional cotton or lycra. I enjoyed reading your articles and I did have undergarment made of bamboo which really feel comfortable and quick dry too maybe in future I need to try T-Shirt made of bamboo as well.

    • Hi Erry

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts and views plus with what you already have benefited from with the Bamboo clothing. As you already know they do feel comfortable and certainly are quick drying as well.

      Now that you have a post about this you can always click those images above and select your T-shirt as well.

      So Enjoy all the Bamboo clothing and know your skin will be happy for it.

      Take care be well


  2. What a versatile plant I used to have a pair of bamboo socks that I had received as a present before they were the most comfortable socks I had ever worn. Did not know there were so many different things made out of bamboo though until your article. I am interested in the sheets. Have you had any experience with them yourself ? If so how did they hold up on washings ? As Christmas is coming up I bookmarked your store.

    • Hi Cathy

      Thank you for the visit yes they are super comfortable I too didn’t realise how comfortable they were until i got my pair of socks as well. 

      I do have the bed sheets as well and found them to be so comfortable and relaxing with no issue in the wash. but you do need to make sure when washing you don’t add harsh chemicals such as Chlorine bleach as this can weaken the Bamboo fabric but other that careful washing as you would with many other types of material it will last a long time. 

      I have had my sheets for just over a year and they are still just as comfortable as when I got them.

      Definitely bookmark this site as Christmas is coming this will really be a great and welcome gift. As changes come along I will add more on my site as they come.

      And if any of your friends or yourself have sensitive skin this is a bonus wearing Bamboo Clothing


  3. I had never really thought about the health benefits of using bamboo in clothing or items like toothbrushes. I use a bamboo pillow as I have mild asthma and allergies to dust and pollen, so it makes sense to use bamboo in other products for the same reason. I will have to look further into it. 

    • Hi Gary 

      Thank you for the visit and comments. Yes guess many would not realise that you can have toothbrushes from bamboo. not to mention the greater benefits as a result of using them as well.

      I too have a Bamboo pillow which is so comfortable and very breathable as well. Certainly worth having especially with any breathing issues.

      Wishing you well and thank you once more


  4. Hi Andre and thanks for such an educational post.

     I have lived for quite a long on this wonderful planet Earth but never heard about bamboo clothing. Everything you explained about the benefits of this material for clothes is just amazing. It is no doubt that it is Eco-friendly material and so on. 

     I have a couple of questions which I missed. Bamboo is a fast-growing plant, so it’s not the lack of where it grows. Why are there so few of these clothing products? How do bamboo clothes feel in the washing machine?  I mean, how durable it is?


    • Hi and thank you for the comment. 

      Yes it is very Eco-Friendly and has been there for a while but it now becoming more in the limelight these days particularly with the types of fabrics that are not so friendly both to the environment and especially to the body. 

      It is great for those with sensitive skin as well. 

      I guess now is the time to expand it’s benefits and that is what I am working on.

       As for the washing machine best not to use any bleach as bleach being a chemical compound can affect the fibres of Bamboo also it can be washed best in cold water (besides cold water will also save on the bills compared to using hot water anyway) 

      However if it is heavily soiled can be used in warm (not hot) water and left to soak for about say 15 mins in a gentle detergent before washing.

      Bamboo is more resilient than Cotton and Lycra and maintains it softness even after washing. 

      So it will last longer and still maintain that soft feeling to the skin. As for drying best to air dry as high heat can also affect the fibres hence the cold wash.

      Hope that answers your questions and thank you for that as well.
