Bamboo is a very suitable fibre for many items of clothing. It has good strength, washability, colourfastness, durability and is very comfortable against the skin. It can also claim the following:
* Naturally bacteria inhibiting (find out more)
* Extremely absorbent yet breathable
* Thermo-regulating – warm in winter, cool in summer
* Environmentally friendly – Grown and manufactured without the use of harsh chemicals, serious pollutants or land degradation.
Our bamboo fibres are regenerated cellulose fibres using mature bamboo timber. The technology to produce it has been around for nearly 100 years but it has only been used with bamboo in Japan and China since the turn of the century.
Bamboo Textiles developed and marketed our Extra Thick Socks in 2006 which proved to be very successful and has given bamboo a very high quality reputation in the textiles market. The extended range of our products has followed from there.
Bamboo Textiles P/L is a 100% Australian owned family business. It is based in Gympie in the hinterlands of Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, from where the products are distributed across the country to all states and territories.
