The first thing that you think of when you see the word ‘bamboo’ is definitely not a T-shirt. Moreover, you probably think about the wooden plant and perhaps some pandas. However, once that bamboo is treated and made into fabric, it is one of the best options when it comes to natural and organic fabrics. Moreover, it has all the perfect characteristics that makes it the best choice of fabric when it comes to fitness and exercise clothes. Of course, this means it the perfect fabric for everyday wear as well. Here is why.
The softness of the fabric that is made of bamboo is hard to match. Many users who have tried to wear clothes made of bamboo fabric claimed that it is far softer and far more pleasant than the cotton fabric itself. Only this as a claim is enough to give it a shot and try at least one garment made of bamboo. The secret of the bamboo softness is in its ingredient called pectin. This substance makes it amazingly soft and pleasant to wear.
Besides being that soft and all perfect on your skin, it will also make the perfect daily wear as it absorbs the sweat perfectly and very quickly. You can always choose it for your fitness activities or simply for one of those days when you want to spend the entire day walking and having fun outdoors. This is just the right fabric to help you with all the sweating and still keep you comfortable. If you are active, this type of fabric will allow you to be totally free of that awful feeling when the clothes stick to you all wet while you exercise. Bamboo attracts the moist ad absorbs it right away.
This is perhaps one of the best benefits about the bamboo clothing. Due to all the special characteristics and all the amazing properties the bamboo clothing is the amazing insulator. This means that your body will have enough warmth when it is cold outside and it will keep the cool when it is hot. These insulating properties make it somewhat of a super-fabric. Moreover, if you compare the cotton fabric and the fabric that contains only 50% of bamboo in it, you will find that the later one has more prominent insulating properties. If you remember that cotton is famous for its insulating properties and realize that bamboo has it better even when it is not 100% present in the fabric, it speaks volumes about its quality.
These benefits are also something that makes the bamboo clothing true super-clothing. First of all, it has been proven that the bamboo clothing will protect you from the bad influence of the UV rays. This means that you will be able to stay on the sun longer when wearing the bamboo clothing and don’t get sunburns. However, the best part is yet to come – the bamboo is hypoallergenic, it fights off the mildew, fungus and bacteria. Even when processed, the bamboo maintains these properties since it is just that cool. Therefore, it is perfect for the kids’ clothing as well.
The last but not the least are the environmental benefits of such clothing. Growing bamboo is fast, cheap and easy. It doesn’t require pesticides and fungicides as it fights those things on its own quite successfully. Also, it grows at an amazing speed and it can grow up to several feet a day. Yes, per day! Also, it produces ridiculous amounts of oxygen while growing and it is a plant that can survive draughts just as successfully as it can live out floods. Basically, with all the other properties that are listed above and all these properties that concern the environment, it is simply crazy not to start producing bamboo clothing on a far greater scale. Also, not only that it is easy and fast to produce, bamboo is 100% biodegradable. You simply cannot go wrong with it.
It seems like the clothes made of bamboo are the clothes of the future with all these amazing benefits. They have some awesome and amazing properties and above all, they are eco-friendly. You can hardly do better than that.
