Here's the most common questions we get about why we use bamboo fibres

What makes them so soft?

Bamboo fibres are inherently soft, thanks to their smooth, round structure and the presence of pectins that contribute to their flexibility. This results in a fabric that is gentle and silky to the touch.

How are they so eco-friendly?

Bamboo fibre is celebrated for its eco-friendliness, mainly because bamboo is a highly renewable resource. It grows rapidly, requires minimal water, and doesn’t need pesticides or fertilisers. Furthermore, bamboo can thrive in varied climates without much care, making it a sustainable choice that contributes to greener manufacturing practices.

Why are they so absorbent?

Bamboo fibres are highly absorbent because of their unique structure, filled with micro-gaps and holes. These tiny openings increase the surface area that comes into contact with water, enabling the fibres to soak up moisture effectively. This capillary effect is what makes bamboo an excellent material for towels, swiftly wicking away moisture from the skin.

How can they be super absorbant and quick-drying?

The micro-holes and gaps that bamboo boast also provide a larger surface area for moisture to spread out and evaporate. This capillary effect enhances the fabric's ability to release absorbed water, facilitating a faster drying time compared to other fabrics.

What makes them antibacterial & odor resistant?

Bamboo fibres have a natural antibacterial agent known as 'bamboo kun' that repels bacteria and fungus, preventing odor build-up. This inherent resistance to microbes means bamboo towels stay fresher for longer, reducing the need for frequent washing and contributing to an eco-friendly lifestyle with less water and energy consumption.

Are they hypoallergenic?

Bamboo fibres are inherently hypoallergenic, catering to even the most sensitive skin. The natural bamboo kun resists dust mites, mold, and mildew — common allergens that can irritate the skin. Additionally, the smoothness of bamboo fibres means less friction and irritation, ensuring comfort for all skin types without the risk of allergic reactions.

Why did you blend it with Turkish cotton?

Blending bamboo with Turkish cotton creates a synergy of softness and strength. The bamboo brings a soft smoothness and natural antimicrobial properties, enhancing the fabric's freshness, while the long fibres of Turkish cotton add durability and a plush feel. Together, they create a towel that is luxuriously soft, highly absorbent, and built to last.

What does Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Certified mean?

The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification is a global benchmark for textile safety, ensuring that certified products are free from harmful chemicals and safe for human use. When a fabric, like our bamboo-cotton blend, is Oeko-Tex certified, it signifies that every component has been rigorously tested and deemed safe from over 100 substances known to be hazardous to health.
