Bamboo based fabric are on the look out to enter the market as a leading eco-friendly textile.

Research is presently going on in Colorado for developing this natural fabric that is resistant to damaging ultraviolet (UV) radiation and has anti-bacterial properties.

Bamboo fabric, widely available in Japan, China, India and a number of countries, has characteristics of being soft, durable and elastic. It has a texture similar to that of silk with an equally attractive and lustrous shine.

Most importantly, bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants, available in abundance and therefore insufficiency of raw material is unlikely to occur. Besides, the plant does not also require pesticides and other agents during its period of growth.

The objective is to create a 100 percent antibacterial and UV resistant bamboo fabric for medical purposes. Researchers recreated the fabric by adding chemicals that have the capacity to absorb UV rays.

A study on the effect of multiple laundry cycles has also been conducted and findings show that UV and microbial protection used during manufacturing remains even after washing.

It is hoped that this bamboo fabric would become just as common in US and other countries as it is in Asia.
