Why should I buy clothes such as leggings and skirts made from bamboo fibre?
Choosing the right clothing is important not just from a perspective of style but also for the comfort and versatility that the material provides.
There are many beneficial qualities to bamboo fibre clothing. Firstly, the fibres themselves are a wonderful sustainable resource since bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on earth. It can be grown without artificial fertilizers and the fibres are 100% biodegradable.
The fibres are created as a monofilament yarn so there are no short strands to pull or break. This enables clothing to be incredibly soft and strong. The spun rayon fibres feel very much like silk and are soft to the touch. Bamboo clothing adapts to your body temperature so that you are cooler in summer and warmer in the winter. Not only that, but the moisture absorbent properties are unique as well. The fibres are naturally porous and so clothes made from them are more absorbent than many other textile products. The moisture of the body is attracted away almost instantly and yet despite this the material dries very quickly. If the natural antibacterial properties of bamboo are maintained in production this means that the fibres can discourage the formation of bacteria and so the clothes stay fresher for longer periods.
Bamboo leggings are ideal for active wear in any season. Bijou Boutique has plenty available in store in a number of colours.
