Our Story

The Early Days

Bamboo Body was established in 2005 by sisters Amanda and Elouise. At the time, they were running a maternity clothing boutique in Brisbane and had difficulty sourcing styles made from natural and breathable fabrics.

The sisters went on the hunt for an alternative to synthetic fibres. They were searching for a fabric that was breathable and comfortable to wear in the QLD heat.

After searching all over the world for a fabric that would suit their needs, the sisters were introduced to bamboo fabric which was relatively new at the time. 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.

Bamboo Body is Born

Completely captivated by the unique nature of bamboo fabric, the pair looked beyond the maternity collection they had designed for their store to make their luxuriously soft, stylish and sustainable bamboo clothing accessible to everybody.

They launched their first line of everyday style essentials under the Bamboo Body label in 2006. Bamboo Body has since expanded rapidly and now offers a vast collection of bamboo clothing for women, men and children, 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.

Slow and Sustainable

The textile industry is one of the biggest industries in the world and has been locked in a cycle of chronic unsustainability.

Reducing consumption is of utmost importance and the fashion industry has been one of the worst when it comes to producing waste. It is not uncommon for a garment to be worn once and then sent to landfill… Fast fashion anyone?

At Bamboo Body we are passionate about the environment. Not only is our bamboo fabric a sustainable alternative to cotton and synthetic material textiles, our clothing is designed to be versatile, trans-seasonal and worn time and time again.
