Three Benefits of Bamboo Fabric

At DC Knits, we use many fabrics when making the wide selection of clothing that we offer. But there’s something about bamboo itself that stands out. There’s a reason why it’s been cherished and worn by civilizations around the world for millennia. Actually, maybe a few.

Here are some of the benefits of bamboo fabric:

Bamboo fabric is great for the environment

Bamboo is one of, if not the, most eco-friendly fabrics out there. It’s usually organically grown, and the water it’s made with is recycled, and reused. Not to mention it detoxifies the air we breathe, producing 30 percent more oxygen than an ordinary tree. And, luckily, it’s not going anywhere anytime soon — in fact, bamboo is the fastest growing plant on the planet!

Bamboo fabric is great for your body

Unlike most synthetic fabrics, bamboo lets your body breathe and absorbs moisture seamlessly, allowing any body odors or sweat to leave without any problems. The super-soft fabric maintains suitable temperatures all year round, so your body will feel fresh and comfortable, no matter the occasion. Even after you wash it a few times, bamboo retains its antifungal and antibacterial features, meaning that it’ll last a lifetime.

Bamboo fabric is great for your skin

If you have a skin issue or allergies, bamboo clothes are the perfect fit. Its anti-static features will not disturb whatever the condition is, and, as mentioned, bacteria is unable to live in the fabric itself. Bamboo also helps protect against 97.5 percent of dangerous UV rays, which can lead to skin cancer.

So there we have it: bamboo is not only eco-friendly, and healthy to wear, but also, a great benefit to your skin. Let’s just say many other fabrics cannot say the same. That’s why DC Knits has chosen to offer bamboo in our clothing. To find a fabric that works for you, contact us today by calling 505-471-3640!
