Bamboo fiber is an environmentally friendly material obtained from natural stuff by chemical or mechanical processing. It is used for sewing clothes and home textiles, as well as a filler for pillows and blankets.
Bamboo fiber consists of natural components, so it has such advantages as:
- Hypoallergenicity. It does not cause allergic reactions and suitable for people with sensitive skin.
- Hygroscopicity. It quickly gets dry and absorbs moisture.
- Air permeability. Thanks to the porous structure of the fibers, these products easily pass air and do not cause skin irritation.
- Well colorable. Bamboo yarn products are easy to color; moreover, their color is permanent, neither fading under the influence of sunlight nor shedding when washing.
- Low thermal conductivity. In winter, the fabric keeps warm and warms you.
- Softness. Bamboo fabrics are soft, pleasant to the touch, have a silky luster.
- High wrinkle resistance. The products are virtually unwrinkable and can be easily stored in a folded form.
- Antiseptic and antimicrobial properties. Bamboo effectively destroys harmful microorganisms, and this feature is also transmitted to finished products.
The only disadvantage when using bamboo fibers is the high price.
