By now I think we all understand that we can’t carry on consuming at the current rate we are, or hopefully have been. Cotton is a perfect example of being a victim of mass consumption. Everyone from Reuters and the BBC to Inside Fashion and The Economic Times have reported on the simple fact that we are running out of Cotton as a pure, raw material.
So what’s the alternative? Well, believe it or not Bamboo is being hailed as a miracle material being used for everything from flooring, to being used as an alternative to coal or peat for heating. But today we are focusing on how it is being used in clothing.
Bamigo, the sustainable men’s fashion brand from the Netherlands, offers a premium collection of pants, t-shirts, socks and pyjamas, Bamigo’s products are all handmade using bamboo fibres that allow the skin breathe and offer unparalleled comfort. Handmade and silky-soft, Bamigo offers a perfect fit which feels like a second skin, whilst looking effortlessly stylish. As we know, Loungewear is a must-have in the modern man’s wardrobe. These items are primarily worn around the house and are specially designed to enhance relaxation, offering truly unbeatable levels of comfort. Unwind in your favourite bamboo loungewear, and look great doing it.
The bamboo fabric used in all Bamigo products offers excellent ventilation thanks to the microscopic holes in bamboo fibres, helping to keep you looking and feeling cool whatever the temperature.
The bamboo fibres absorb up to 70% more moisture than cotton without retaining unpleasant odours, allowing the skin to breathe and ensuring freshness throughout the day, no matter the situation. The thermal regulating effect of bamboo fibres provide added protection against the chill of a cold day while preventing overheating on warmer ones.
Bamigo is committed to the design of a sustainable and more durable alternative to cotton clothing. The entire range, crafted by hand using bamboo, is kinder to the environment than cotton as it needs only sunlight and rainwater to grow. The use of bamboo also has a positive impact on other global environmental concerns such as deforestation and the greenhouse effect.
Benefits of bamboo clothing include;
Extended Freshness: Fabrics made using bamboo offer excellent ventilation thanks to the microscopic holes in bamboo fibres. Bamboo also has a structure that repels moisture, meaning it wicks away moisture quickly.
Excellent Heat Regulation: Bamboo fabrics also have several insulating properties that influence heat exchange. In warm weather, bamboo fabrics feel fresh while also providing added protection against the chill of a cold day.
Hypoallergenic: Bamboo is hypoallergenic, which means that it does not trigger any allergic reactions. This unique property of bamboo is particularly welcome for those who have sensitive skin or suffer with allergies.
Protection Against UV Radiation: Bamboo provides natural UV protection and can filter up to 97.5% of harmful UV rays. This makes it the ideal fabric to have next to your skin on hot days with prolonged exposure to sunlight.
Crease-Free: Bamboo clothing does not require ironing. Thanks to the properties of bamboo fibres, the fabric is almost impossible to wrinkle and holds its shape exceptionally well.
Sweat-Resistant: Bamboo clothing absorbs up to 70% more moisture than cotton without retaining unpleasant odours. The thermal regulating effect of bamboo fibres helps you stay sweat-free and feeling fresh.
Eco-Friendly: Bamboo has a positive impact on global environmental concerns such as water scarcity, deforestation, soil erosion and the greenhouse effect. Bamboo is a by far more sustainable textile than cotton available to help create a better world.
