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.
