Bamboo Clothing


Sustainable textiles and clothing have been gaining a lot of ground. Now, hemp has long been a favorite renewable fiber, but did you know there are alternatives? Bamboo Clothing by Ecodesignz is a line of clothes made from organic bamboo as well as organic cotton and spandex blends. With a growth rate of up to two feet a day, bamboo is a fantastic renewable resource, producing strong and incredibly comfortable clothes that compare favorably to silk. Check out the 100% bamboo fiber short or long sleeve tee shirts. They're moisture wicking, naturally bacteriostatic, and antimicrobial to reduce body odor build-up. (And their thin weight makes them ideal for layering!)

The process by which bamboo is refined into clothing is similar to Rayon which is a big enviro no-no. It's pretty frustrating that people think bamboo is a good natural fiber alternative while it's actually much worse for the environment than organic cotton or regularly processed hemp.
