Bamboo Textiles

Bamboo Textiles

Bamboo Textiles Australia is one of the leading bamboo clothing and homewares manufacturers in Australia.

After discovering the many benefits of bamboo fibres worn against the skin, as well as the sustainability of bamboo, Bamboo Textiles Australia set out to create clothing and homewares that take advantage of these benefits.

The Bamboo Textiles Australia range includes bamboo clothing, bamboo underwear, bamboo socks, bamboo towels and bamboo bed sheets.

Why bamboo clothes are good for you

A highly versatile and natural fibre, bamboo clothing has many benefits for the wearer, including:

  • Bamboo is moisture wicking and breathable

Bamboo fibres are highly absorbent and able to help draw moisture and sweat off your body. The moisture wicking capability of bamboo allows your skin to be ventilated and be able to breath.

This can help you avoid feeling stuffy and having clothes stick to you during hot and humid weather. It can also help to reduce body odour as the moisture isn’t on your body for long periods of time.

  • Bamboo materials are hypoallergenic and antibacterial

People with sensitive skin may benefit from wearing bamboo clothing. The clothing helps to wick away moisture and allows the skin to be ventilated, it is also naturally antibacterial, and doesn’t require the use of pesticides or harsh chemicals to grow.

The antibacterial properties of bamboo fibres, known as ‘bamboo kun’ are retained throughout the production process of bamboo materials as well as after washing the final product many times. These antibacterial properties also help to reduce unpleasant body odour.

  • Bamboo is long-lasting and durable

Bamboo is a strong and resilient material that is more durable than cotton.  Bamboo fabric does not pill, nor does it lose its shape when cared for properly.

As the natural antibacterial properties help to avoid odours clinging to the fabric, bamboo clothing generally does not require washing as often as other materials.

  • Easy to care for

Though bamboo clothing may not require washing as often as clothing made of other materials, when it does, it is simple to care for. Bamboo clothing is machine washable and does not require the addition of fabric softeners or harsh laundry detergents. To ensure the longevity of your bamboo clothing, follow the manufacturer’s care instructions.

  • Bamboo clothing is comfortable

While the moisture wicking and antibacterial properties of bamboo help to make bamboo clothing comfortable, it is also a very naturally soft material.  The softness of bamboo fabrics is long-lasting and doesn’t require fabric softeners to maintain it.

Why bamboo clothes are good for the environment

Bamboo is a natural and sustainable resource that can help to reduce the environmental impact of the clothing industry. The bamboo plant is fast growing, taking only 3-4 years to fully mature.

Upon harvesting the bamboo plant doesn’t require replanting or uprooting to grow again, it is highly regenerative and requires little water to grow.  The bamboo plant can also grow unaided by pesticides and chemicals due to its natural antibacterial properties.

As bamboo is a natural fibre, bamboo fabric is biodegradable, which can aid in reducing the clothing and textile industry’s landfill contribution.
