That's what excites us about bamboo fabrics.

Bamboo fabrics are not only strong and durable; they are also carbon friendly as bamboo is a fast growing grass that does not need to be replanted after harvest. Bamboo requires few pesticides, fertilizers and very little water to grow, making it an ideal plant for drought-prone areas.
