  Bamboo is a cellulosic fiber derived from the pulp of bamboo plants (Bambusoideae). It is usually not made from the fibers of the plant, but is a synthetic viscose made from bamboo cellulose. The manufacturing technology of bamboo viscose and bamboo viscose yarn was patented in 2003 by Chinese inventors.

Bamboo fiber is Naturally Organic - it is grown without pesticides or fertilizers, unlike conventional cotton. It can be made into fabric or yarn that is soft, breathable, sustainable, absorbent, hypoallergenic (bamboo's organic and natural properties make it non-irritating - perfect for extra sensitive skin), having elegant luster and affinity to dye. Because of its fast growth and sustainability, bamboo is regarded as an eco-friendly fiber and has become increasingly popular as awareness of environmental issues has grown. It is used widely for making all types of clothes including coats and jackets, and can be blended with other fibers. - Reference: Alex Newman, Fashion A to Z.

In addition to being a biodegradable, absorbent, breathable, hypoallergenic, thermo-regulating, and anti-bacterial fiber, bamboo is less expensive than silk and cashmere, while having the lustre of silk and softness of cashmere.

Did you know? The bamboo is grown in accordance with the international organic standard of OCIA/IFOAM and the USDA National Organic Program, so as to ensure each bamboo stalk is of 100% natural growth and without any chemical pesticides.
