The Top Benefits of Bamboo Clothing

Updated on September 24, 2014
Source

If you have ever worn a piece of clothing made of bamboo you know how pleasant and soft it feels on your skin. Clothing made from bamboo has many other advantages in comparison to other materials and more and more stores are offering garments made from this magic material.

1

Bamboo owes its softness to its natural component: pectin. It is very comfortable to wear and thus ideal for baby clothing and children’s wear. Wear it once and you will not ever go back to cotton again.

2

Bamboo is antibacterial and antifungal due to a substance called "bamboo kun", an antimicrobial agent that helps the plant resist to pest and fungi attacks. As bacteria are not attracted by this material, you can prevent unpleasant odors and wear the piece of clothing for longer. It is also great for people with sensitive skin.

3

Bamboo absorbs moisture in no time. This is why it is ideal for sports activities and adventure trips. The store tasc performance offers a wide range of bamboo clothing for sports like running, yoga, tennis and golf.

4

The insulating effect of bamboo makes the fabric highly breathable during warm summer temperatures and at the same time it keeps you considerably warmer in the cold than other fabrics.

5

Bamboo is antistatic. Often, synthetic fibers make an uncomfortable crackling sound. This is not the case with bamboo. It forms a layer next to your skin but doesn’t stick to it.

6

Bamboo blocks UV rays by 98%. So you can perfectly wear it in the summer and don’t need to worry about getting sunburned.


8

Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world and is thus an eco-friendly and sustainable resource. The yield of an acre of bamboo equals 10 times the amount you would get from cotton. There is no need to use pesticides or fertilizers as it flourishes naturally. In addition, it is 100% biodegradable. Last but not least, it does not require a lot of water. This is just the opposite for cotton, which needs tons of water to grow.

      I am glad you found the article interesting Billy. :) I actually own a pair of bamboo socks and love them because they are so soft and comfortable.

      I was quite skeptical about bamboo clothing until I came upon some of it at a street fair last year. I was amazed how soft it is, and now, thanks to your article, I know why. :) Good info, Jennifer.

      This is a very interesting and enlightening article. I have learned something new. I love natural fabrics whether it is cotton, linen, hemp, or silk. I have heard about bamboo as a material but I have learned a lot from reading this hub. Voted UP.
