Bamboo – the new Luxury. Spring into Spring with Bamboo!

Bamboo – the new Luxury. Spring into Spring with Bamboo!

Whenever the conversation turns to the materials we use for much of our collection, I am ready to shout it from the rooftops: Bamboo really is the new luxury.

After being introduced to Bamboo Jersey by a supplier very early in the design process, it was a clear that it was the material for our collection. Not only is it a gorgeously luxe fabric – it replicates silk in its beautiful flowing qualities as well as keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer. It’s also naturally anti-bacterial which means it can manage odours (if needed) and is a natural fibre that’s as good for the earth as it is for your skin.

Here’s the green side of using beautiful bamboo…

Environmentally, bamboo is one of the most sustainable fabrics in use. The bamboo plant is the fastest growing woody plant in the world which means that because it only takes between eight and ten weeks to reach full potential, and because it grows extremely densely, the land mass bamboo uses is far smaller compared to the comparable materials on the market. Not only that, the deforestation which comes with alternate fabric sources just isn’t there with bamboo. In fact, much of the wasted riparian land tracks in China are now being used to grow bamboo which means this product is actually greening the planet instead of stripping it. When bamboo cane is cut, the extensive root system is left – so none of that horrid soil erosion – and the bamboo will produce and grow another shoot ready to be harvested again within the year. It’s a sustainable cycle we’re proud to be part of!

So – YES - great for the planet. Now what about for us lovely ladies? Well, the natural anti-bacterial bamboo fibre is round and smooth and comes without any chemical treatment - it is usually steamed - which means it’s super soft & often compared to cashmere. There are no sharp fibres to irritate the skin. For you, this means if you have a breakout of rash at the sight of hemp or wool (read: your skin breaks out in a cold sweat), bamboo is your new fav product! You will fall in love with it!

Soft, beautiful and luxe – yep. Skin irritation – nope. Anti-bacterial properties – bonus. Great material to lounge and sleep in – yes, yes, a thousand times, yes!

We know you’ll love it as much as we do the second you step into it.

Your bosomed buddy,

Annie xx
