Did you know bamboo holds the Guinness World Record for being the fastest growing plant on Earth? It's true!
The speed at which bamboo grows, and the limited use of water required to make it grow makes it a more sustainable option than cotton when it comes to textile manufacturing.
Bamboo wood is also extremely versatile in its uses - on this site alone you will find luxuriously soft 100% bamboo sheets and blankets, alongside bamboo pyjamas, beach towels and undies.
Everything we range in our Bamboo Island store is crafted in luxuriously soft and sustainable bamboo.
These are just a few of the reasons why we love bamboo:
It works hard for our planet
Bamboo absorbs carbon dioxide and releases 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere than an equivalent stand of hardwood trees.
It can withstand the pace of deforestation and needs very little water to grow.
It is organically grown
Bamboo has natural defences against pests so it can flourish and grow without the use of pesticides, fertilisers or chemicals.
It is truly a wonder fabric
Bamboo is moisture-wicking (less sweat!), thermo-regulating (keeps you cool in summer and warmer in winter) and is a breathable, natural fibre.
It also has antibacterial properties (you'll stay fresh) and is naturally hypoallergenic. Bamboo fabric is also luxuriously soft and smooth to touch and is perfect for anyone with eczema and allergies.
And if all that wasn't enough, no ironing is required either... Hurray!
