The team at BAMBOO TEXTILES Ltd has announced additional products and believes they now have the widest range of bamboo textile products available in the UK.

The range is aimed at eco-conscious consumers wanting a viable alternative to cotton-based merchandise.

20% of pesticides used throughout the world are used in growing cotton also valuable water resources are needed for cotton crops.

With a diverse selection of bed clothing including elegant sheets, duvet covers, pillows and pillowcases Bamboo Textiles' range includes simple clothing for adults, children and babies, along with towels, nappies and household wipes. Bamboo fabric is particularly effective for those with sensitive skin and skin disorders, it is known as the “breathing fibre”. It may be the end of smelly feet too as socks made from bamboo have a deodorising effect due to the natural bacteriostatic bioagent of the fibre.

As a long established textile company, Bamboo Textiles recognizes the benefits and advantages offered by bamboo, which boasts many superior qualities to cotton.

“Bamboo has naturally inherent anti bacterial properties, 30% greater absorbency than cotton, high UV protection and durability,” said Bamboo Textiles director David Hardman.

“ A couple of years ago we identified a growing market for bamboo fabric products. Bamboo was developed into a fibre only about five years ago. Many families will welcome its unique properties and we also believe that care homes and healthcare institutions will find it revolutionary ” he added.

“Bamboo is known to have outstanding benefits for those suffering from skin allergies and it is incredibly soft to the touch.

Environmentally conscious consumers and organisations will also appreciate the fact that bamboo is a continuously sustainable crop, growing at a very rapid rate with no need for irrigation.

“Bamboo is 100% naturally grown, and thrives naturally without using any pesticides or fertilizers. The fibre is 100% biodegradable, and the yield from an acre of bamboo is 10 times greater than the yield from cotton,” added Mr. Hardman.

Bamboo takes up far more greenhouse gases and releases far more oxygen than cotton its nearest rival.
