Our Fabric

 

 

We love experimenting with different bamboo fabric blends. 

Firstly, it keeps things interesting and secondly, we find that different blends and constructions are suitable for different styles and purposes.

 

We all love the properties of bamboo but when it comes to clothing, we are all individuals and have different likes and dislikes. 

We are offering bamboo to our customers in a variety of blends, constructions and thicknesses in the hope you will be able to find the bamboo that is best for you.

 

However, with all the different fabric options available it can become very confusing. 

We have customers ask, “What is the best fabric for me?”, “What are the differences between each fabric?”. 

We hope the below information answers your questions.  If you have any further queries, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
