The Reasons to Include More Bamboo Fabrics into Your Lifestyle

Now that everything that has to do with optimal health is trendy, people have finally started paying attention to every decision they make that in one way or another affects their well-being. Such is the case also with the choice of materials, so not surprisingly bamboo started growing in popularity.

So, on the question why make bamboo part of your life, there are more reasons. First of all, it’s a sustainable, resistant plant, that doesn’t require pesticides and fertilisers to endure, and thrive, and as a result is an eco-friendly option, whose strong fibres are also more comfortable than those of cotton, and linen (feeling as soft as cashmere and silk depending on how they are spun). This leads us to another question, where do you start introducing bamboo? I say the bathroom, through bamboo bath sheets.

Though usually an afterthought, and often unappreciated, bath sheets do a lot of servicing in the household, from occasional wiping, to drying off, and cleaning, so they do deserve to be given more thought.

If you want to make the most of this home necessity, bamboo bath sheets are the ideal option, more so because of their moisture wicking properties which means they don’t make for the bacteria growth conditions and that’s what makes them suitable for everyone, all skin types, even people dealing with allergies; they’re breathable, and hypoallergenic, with anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, and anti-fungal properties.

Let’s not forget all this popularity is also making bamboo as a fabric far more affordable. This also has to do with the versatility of choice, with more products being made of bamboo nowadays. This includes bedding, as much as it does clothing (from undergarments, to shirts, pants, and workout pieces), so you have no excuse not to start paying attention to the materials you choose.

For instance, this sort of bedding can also help you with getting quality sleep, as it happens to be thermoregulating, i.e. keeping you warm in winter, and cool in summer. In terms of clothing, as I said bamboo is breathable, so it makes way for sweat which is why it doesn’t affect its quality even after continuous use, and washing in the same way other clothing materials lose shape, and colouring.

Knowing how harmful synthetic options can be, it’s in your best interest to make the healthy choice minding what you wear, and piling up on all-things bamboo when it comes to fabrics – there’s no healthy living without taking them into consideration.
