Bamboo

Bamboo fibre is one of the most eco-friendly materials available, one of the key reasons being that it is a naturally renewable resource. It is also the world’s fastest growing plant, which have been found to grow at up to 91 cm (35 in) per day or at a rate of 0.00003 km/h (0.00002 mph) which is 3 feet per day! There is also no need to use any fertilisers, pesticides, or herbicides to help the plant thrive.

Unlike hardwood trees, bamboo absorbs carbon dioxide and releases an astonishing 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere.

In the correct conditions, bamboo is capable of growing up to 4 feet in 24 hours. As the plant grows very quickly, we are able to manufacture our products without disturbing the wild panda’s diet, as 99% of it is bamboo. Bamboo is also extremely easy to maintain, as it does not require any pesticides or fertilizers to grow and it absorbs a very small amount of water compared to other plants for textiles such as cotton.
