Bamboo Textiles

Bamboo Textiles Ltd. sustainably grown so better than cotton alternative

When describing bamboo we use viscose of bamboo yarn in the knitting and weaving of our products.

It is a staple fibre like cotton and made from,  well,  Bamboo ! The inherent properties of viscose from Bamboo fabric allow the production of the same products as cotton, but its better than cotton.

Yes, our fabrics beat cotton on every count!  the cotton blend is a very highly effective anti bacterial combination (tested to 50 washes). ( We have had it tested by a specialist microbiologist at the University of Central Lancashire.

It is more absorbent than cotton , absorbing over 400% of its own weight

From bedding to nappies viscose of Bamboo is more breathable, itís more absorbent than cotton but it dries nearly as quickly, itís naturally antibacterial (tested up to 50 washes) , we have had all the fabrics used in the products tested twice by School of Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Central Lancashire . 

Tests carried out by the University of Central Lancashire, School of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences

2012 Study: The results from this study suggest that our pyjama fabric will prevent the growth of Streptococcus G. and a significant retardation of growth of E. coli .  2009 Study : Overall the results would suggest that  30% Cotton + 70% bamboo that had been washed 50 times appear to be able to reduce the growth of MRSA.  Similar to MRSA, it can be seen that Bamboo, when combined with either Polyester or Cotton, had an inhibitory effect on the growth of C.difficile.

The tests showed that there was little reduction when tested on Candida albicans  but it is effective in the reduction of MRSA bacteria, E Coli and C.Difficile. Viscose of Bamboo has another wonderful property, itís softer to the touch yet it is as durable than cotton but for that extra wet strength we add cotton to the blend when the yarn is spun, and itís much more ecologically sustainable than cotton and of course nylon and polyester as it grows without synthetic chemicals such as fertiliser and pesticides.  Unlike cotton growing bamboo needs no irrigation. the vast majority of cotton is grown with the aid of chemical fertiliser and pesticides 20 % of all agricultural pesticides used annually are used in growing cotton.

Itís wonderful and we love it.  We hope you do too!

removal of the word anti-bacterial

We have had our fabrics which our products are made from tested by the University of Central Lancashire School of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences in their laboratories, but because according to Trading Standards Dept Camden Council say had "carrying out studies in a laboratory setting where everything is staged is not a close enough replication to the real world for you to make the claims" we have to remove the word anti-bacterial from our website
