Bamboo Apparel

 

One of the most sustainable fibers happens to come from one of the fastest renewable resources. Bamboo grows incredibly fast. In fact, some can grow up to two feet each day and some even faster than that and can do so with about a 1/3 less water to grow than cotton. Bamboo can grow almost anywhere in the world except it doesn't do well in the North or South Pole. But we don't blame it. 

Bamboo is actually a species of grass; a grass that has been used for thousands of years to build homes in Asia. Slowly but surely, it is becoming more and more popular in the U.S as more information about it is available. Bamboo can be used in place of wood in the construction of housing. Trees are not ready to be used as wood for at least 60 years whereas bamboo can be ready within three to seven years. 

Bamboo fabric, which is the type of bamboo we really like, is light and strong and is really soft to the touch and requires less dye than cotton. Bamboo also has many antibacterial qualities, which the bamboo fabric is able to retain even through multiple washes to reduce bacteria. In addition, bamboo fabric has insulating properties and will keep you cooler in summer and warmer in winter. This is all we needed to know before we started making our own bamboo apparel for men and ladies at Royal Apparel.
