The Benefits of Bamboo in Clothing
And if you were after more detail, we engaged Green Story to find out how our fabrics compare to conventional materials - see this report.
THE CHOICE FOR SUSTAINABILITY
No pesticides. No insecticides. No fertilisers. Ok, we're off to a good start...
Grown without artificial irrigation
Producing commercial harvests of bamboo requires only rainwater. What’s more, all water used in the production process is recycled and re-used.
Improving air quality
Bamboo plantations produce 30% more oxygen than an equivalent area of trees and absorb more carbon dioxide and greenhouse gases.
Fast growing, regenerating
The fastest growing woody plant in the world, some species of bamboo shoot up as much as one metre a day! New stems are able to be harvested again and again. Honestly, try to wrap your mind around that.
THE CHOICE FOR HEALTH
Anti-bacterial & anti-fungal
Bamboo contains an anti-bacterial and anti-fungal bio-agent which is retained through the process of fabrication and after washing many, many times. This property also makes Boody garments odour-resistant. Sounds good... and smells good.
Particularly suitable for eczema sufferers and those with extra sensitive skin.
Breathable & moisture-wicking
The structure of the bamboo fibres contains micro-gaps, which provide ventilation and pull moisture away from the body, allowing the skin to breathe.
UPF50+ Sun protection
All Boody garments are made from a UPF50+ rated fabric to protect yourself from ultraviolet (UV) damage. Layer up!
THE CHOICE FOR COMFORT
Light, luxuriously soft and gentle on the skin, bamboo is a dream to wear.
Cosy in winter, cool in summer, Boody garments provide warmth without bulk. Great for exercise in all conditions.
A neutral charge prevents static build-up, preventing clinging.
