Here I am again. I recently wrote a blog about what our loungewear collection is made of. Today I want to go into that a little further and specifically on the bamboo lounge wear. Not many people know about the existence of bamboo clothing and that is why I want to teach you more about it so that you can share this knowledge again!
Just freshen up!
To refresh your memory, I start by explaining again what organic bamboo actually is. What exactly is organic bamboo? Organic bamboo is a textile made from bamboo fibers. The soft fabric is created because the organic bamboo fibers are fibers made from viscose rayon made from bamboo. This makes the fabric very fine and therefore soft. Organic bamboo is often used so that no plastic has to be processed during the manufacturing process.
Why organic bamboo ?
Bamboo is a very sustainable plant. And at TET. the more durable, the better! It grows quickly and requires little care. Furthermore, products made from bamboo are fully biodegradable or recyclable. That is of course also where we at TET. absolutely looking for. Fabrics made from bamboo fibers are wonderfully airy and breathable and also incredibly soft. You also want a soft bamboo sweater, don’t you?
Maybe you are already convinced and you do not even read this blog and you already run to the web shop to order these wonderful bamboo lounge wear so that you can experience as soon as possible how soft these sweat sets actually are. If I haven’t convinced you yet (which I can hardly believe) I have searched for some nice bamboo facts for you.
Facts about bamboo
Bamboo textile is a soft, high-quality fabric that is ideally suited as an alternative to cotton. It can be used in underwear, socks, suits, jeans, shirts and other durable clothes that we now use cotton for. What are the facts about bamboo?
