We chose the high quality and sustainable woven bamboo mainly because of its absorbency, absorbing 60% more moisture and dries 20% quicker than traditional cotton towelling, whilst offering a soft silky texture for comfort. Bamboo is also anti-bacterial by nature, even after 100 wash cycles. As a material it has fantastic environment credentials, able to be cultivated naturally without pesticides and absorbing 35% more carbon dioxide than equivalent fibres. Bamboo was a win win.
Bamboo fabric has a soft silky texture similar to cashmere. It is breathable and extremely comfortable against the skin. Bamboo fabric surpasses cotton in moisture absorption. Its criss-cross texture creates microscopic openings in the fibres, creating truly exceptional moisture absorption. Tests have shown that bamboo absorbs 60% more moisture than cotton and dries 20% quicker, this makes it an obvious choice for drying dogs!
Made from environmentally friendly woven bamboo. Our bamboo towelling is highly biodegradable and eco-friendly, having hardly any impact on the environment.
Bamboo is a unique material because it can be cultivated naturally without the need for pesticides. It is one of the world’s fastest growing plants, growing up to one metre in a single day, ensuring a quick grow-cultivation cycle, and as bamboo is a grass, it will continue to grow once it has been cut, just like a lawn. Bamboo can also absorb 35% more Carbon Dioxide than equivalent fibres.
Our bamboo towelling is made from the highest quality East Asian bamboo. Compared to fibres originating from wood (viscose rayon) or other petro-chemical fibres (polyester), bamboo has an important advantage to offer: a short growth cycle and easy cultivation.
Anti-Bacterial by Nature
Results carried out by Testex; an independent Swiss laboratory have shown that bamboo fabric is antibacterial by nature. (JIS L 1902 Quantitative Test). The Japanese Textile Federation have confirmed that after 100 washing cycles, bamboo fibre still possesses it’s anti-bacterial properties.
