The Benefits of Bamboo

The Benefits of Bamboo

There have been so many advancements in the fashion industry that it can be hard to keep track. But one that we really want to talk about is Bamboo.

Bamboo has quickly become a beloved material in the fashion industry due to its sustainable and eco-friendly properties. With its soft texture and breathable nature, bamboo fabric is not only comfortable to wear but also highly versatile. It is known for its moisture-wicking abilities, making it a popular choice for activewear and its silk like feeling which is just perfect for such things like socks.

Additionally, bamboo is the fastest-growing plant in the world! It requires minimal water and no pesticides to thrive, making it a more environmentally conscious option compared to traditional fabrics. As more designers and brands embrace bamboo in their collections, it's clear that this trend is here to stay, offering both style and sustainability to fashion-conscious consumers.

How to Take Care of Your Bamboo Clothing:

Like most clothing, you want to take the upmost care when doing the laundry. We always recommend washing your socks in cold water and either hang drying or using a low heat / delicate setting on the drying machine. We want to make sure you socks stay in the best condition for as long as possible!


Fun Facts About Bamboo:


  • According to Guinness World Records, some species of bamboo can grow up to 2.91 ft/day — or, 1.5 inches/hr. So if you sit with a bamboo culm for long enough, it might just grow before your eyes! 


  • No, really! Cutting bamboo actually stimulates growth. How does this work? Instead of using its energy to regain the lost height, a cut bamboo stalk will simply unfurl new leaves. These leaves, in turn, create and send more energy down to its roots to encourage the growth of new shoots. The more that gets harvested, the faster bamboo grows. That makes bamboo an incredible renewable resource that can be sustainably harvested.


  • Bamboo’s incredible growth rate is impressive, and some of the reasons are less obvious — including its powerful carbon sequestration potential. When properly managed and intensively harvested, bamboo can sequester up to 1.78 tonnes of CO2 per clump per year. This translates into a CO2 drawdown curve that’s up to 10X faster than that of woody trees. That's HUGE!
