Continental® BAMBOO jersey is combined with 30% ORGANIC cotton to give stability, beautiful softness and perfect printability.
Naturally sustainable BAMBOO is rapidly emerging into the fashion world.
Fabric woven from bamboo yarn is light, almost translucent, and softer than cotton. It has a natural quality that feels like silk, but has the advantage of being machine-washable. This natural fibre is hypoallergenic, absorbent, and fast drying. It is naturally anti-bacterial and will not hold odour. Like other natural fibres, it allows the body to breathe as the fabric absorbs the perspiration away from the body.
It also is the most sustainable of the natural fibres. It is fast-growing – the type of bamboo used for making fabric, commonly known as Moso, can reach a mature height of 75 feet in just 45 to 60 days. It needs no pesticides and, If there is sufficient rainfall, no additional irrigation is required. It regenerates naturally through an extensive root system that sends out an average of four to six new shoots per year. It can be harvested and harvested, and it will grow again and again. And when your bamboo garment finishes its useful life, it can return to nourish the earth, as it is 100%biodegradable.
