What is Organic Cotton?
Organic Cotton is made from 100% all-natural, chemical-free fibers, and very low impact dyes.
As the world changes to a more green outlook, bamboo is becoming more and more popular, and one of the reasons is because of how quickly it grows making it a very renewable resource. It only requires a third the amount of water to grow than cotton, and has no natural pests. This means that bamboo can be grown with little to no use of pesticides or herbicides.
Bamboo fabric is very soft, often described as feeling like cashmere. This is because the bamboo fiber itself is naturally round and smooth without any chemical treatment. That being said, there are no sharp spurs to irritate the skin, and in turn bamboo can be worn directly to skin. even with many people who are allergic to other natural fibers such as hemp or wool.
Another unique quality with bamboo fiber is its antibacterial qualities. This unique antibacterial quality is due to an antimicrobial bio-agent called “bamboo kun” which is found naturally in the fiber. Kun makes bamboo a naturally antibacterial, anti-fungal, and odor resistant fiber, through multiple washings. The bamboo kun helps to reduce bacteria that thrive on clothing and human skin. This means that the wearer and the fabric have less bacteria that cause unpleasant odors.
Bamboo also has excellent wicking properties. The textile resembles the plant in this aspect as being highly water absorbent, and is able to take in up to three times it’s weight in water! The textile retains this ability to some extent, pulling the moisture away from the skin so that it can evaporate. Bamboo fabric also has some insulating properties, meaning that the fabric will help the wearer stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
