Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in this planet and has the ability to grow in many different climates, from jungles to mountainsides. Bamboo fibre and starchy pulps are made from bamboo that grows widely through Asian countries. This pulp is processed in chemical fibre factories into bamboo fibre.

Fabrics made of bamboo fibres have been growing in popularity, because it has many unique properties and is more sustainable than most textile fibres. Bamboo fabric is light & strong and has excellent wicking properties.

Bamboo fibre fabric is more suitable for people who experience allergic reactions to other natural fibres, such as wool or hemp. Bamboo fabric is favored by companies trying to use sustainable textiles, because the bamboo plant is very quick growing and does not usually require the use of pesticides and herbicides to thrive.

The versatility of bamboo fabric makes it an excellent choice for clothing designers exploring alternative textiles, and in addition, the fabric has good dyeing properties as well, drapes smoothly and can be utilised in a variety of clothing like knits and woven apparels.
