THE BAMBOO BODY STORY
Bamboo Body was founded by Australian sisters Amanda and Elouise in 2005. Their first business was a retail maternity clothing store based in Brisbane.
Their pregnant customers were affected by the heat and were looking for breathable, comfortable fabrics to keep them cool and comfortable over the long summer months.
They were also wanting to be able to wear their new purchases beyond their pregnancies. Amanda and Elouise set about designing a capsule collection to fit the bill.
Discovering Bamboo Fabric
After searching all over the world for a fabric that would suit their needs, the sisters were introduced to relatively new bamboo fabric. They discovered that bamboo fabric was incredibly soft and breathable and were amazed by its beautiful drape. Completely intrigued by the new fabric, Amanda and Elouise embarked on a journey of discovery to find out everything they could about bamboo fabric, the bamboo plant, and the plight of the textile industry.
The more Elouise and Amanda researched bamboo, they more they found reasons to fall in love with both bamboo fabric and the plant itself. Growing up in an eco-conscious family they were excited to discover that not only was bamboo fabric incredibly beautiful, it was also a sustainable alternative to cotton and synthetic material textiles.
Amanda and Elouise agreed that bamboo fabric had all the properties their maternity customers were asking for in their store. It also sat perfectly with their eco ideals. They went about designing their first five items to service their pregnant shoppers and from there their bamboo collection grew.
Bamboo Body is Born
Completely captivated by the unique nature of bamboo fabric, the pair looked beyond their maternity collection to make their luxuriously soft, stylish and sustainable bamboo clothing accessible to everybody.
They launched their first line of everyday essentials for both women and men under the Bamboo Body label in 2006. Bamboo Body has since grown and now offers a wide collection of dresses, tops, cardigans, pants, skirts, pyjamas, socks and underwear, all designed in Australia.
With an unwavering philosophy of ‘look good, feel good, do good’, every piece from Bamboo Body is ethically produced and offers the best in both comfort and style, whatever your shape or size.
