Have you ever put on a cheap, fast-fashion synthetic top only to find that at the end of the day, you feel gross, dirty and are even producing a bit of an odour? Perhaps you chose to wear a simple sleeveless tank in the scorching hot summer only to feel even more hot and claustrophobic than ever. Although many factors can hit you throughout the day and have an effect on your body, choosing the right fabric can make a huge difference. Here, we’ll explain why!
Fabric is an essential part of the fashion design process. The fabric you choose will determine the look, feel, and overall quality of your garments, and can greatly impact their longevity and durability. For us at Bamboo Body - bamboo (if you couldn’t tell by our brand name), has become our chosen savior.
One of the main reasons we love bamboo fabric is for its breathability. The breathability of natural fabrics like bamboo and cotton is incomparable to synthetic materials, which are less comfortable to wear in hot and humid conditions. Some people may feel a sensitivity towards polyester and other synthetic fabrics due to the chemicals used in production. They may even experience skin irritation or allergic reactions.
