KINDER ON YOU AND KINDER TO THE PLANET
Bamboo is an amazing fabric, kinder on you with its super soft, hypoallergenic, breathable, uv resistant and moisture absorbing properties, making it perfect for active wear. You can also feel great about wearing bamboo, as is kinder to the planet. Bamboo is fast growing, with less water usage and no pesticides.
KIND TO THE PLANET
Bamboo grass grows at a rate of 12 inches a day, so it is easily replenished, requires a lot less water, no pesticides, and is cut not uprooted, so kinder to the soil.
Activities often involves getting cold then warm then cold again and wearing bamboo helps you keep an even temperature.
Bamboo has the unique quality of being resistant to harmful UV rays. There is no other natural fibre used for textiles that has this very useful property
Bamboo fabric is warm, yet it is also breathable. Performance in all temperatures.
KIND TO SKIN
Hypoallergenic, breathable and flexible, making it suitable for sensitive skin. It’s also super soft even after repeat washing.
SOFT AND STRONG
Its hardiness means it doesn’t require fertilizers or pesticides to grow, but the grass pulp fibres feel as soft as a cotton-silk blend on your skin
It’s the bacteria that makes your clothing smell. Because moisture doesn’t sit on the surface of our fabric, air can’t get to the odour-causing bacteria. Your clothing stays fresher for longer.
Bamboo fabric absorbs moisture away from your skin, keeping you drier.
GET ACTIVE IN OUR BAMBOO CLOTHING
We have picked out some of our favourite pieces from our Active Life range which are bamboo rich, so we can tell you a little more about them, and why we love this material so much.
First off for women we have the silky soft, high waisted Tamra leggings, with their all over botanical print. We have added a little spandex so these leggings move with you no matter what twisted yoga poses you might be trying out. The soft wide waistband and contour stitching give a really flattering fit without being restrictive, perfect for yoga, walking the dog or just staying comfy around the house.
We love to offset a quirky print with a simple block colour, so we have the Athena T-Shirt to mix and match with our bamboo range. The slouchy fit is really comfortable and we have added an interesting cross over back neck design to bring extra interest to this super soft tee.
For guys we have the soft-feel Alastor T-Shirt, with detailed cover seem stitching to give it a sporty feel, and we have added an outdoor inspired chest print, with a Weird Fish twist of course (did you notice the fish shape?) Well fitted without being clingy, the breathability of this T-Shirt makes it a great choice for outdoor adventures.
The Hypnos bamboo shorts, available in two colours so you can mix and match, these loose, comfy shorts feel really soft so you can wear them all day. With an elasticated waistband, draw cords and zipped hand pockets, you can keep your valuables safe even if you are getting in some jumping jacks.
When the sun is shining and it is a little warmer out, we have the Artemis vest, which features the same fun, cross over back neck design at the T-Shirts, and the botanical print, but we have gone bold with our cheery Orangeade colourway.
If you are working out in the morning maybe and it is still a little chilly we have the cosiest jumper for you; the Hera bamboo sweatshirt. Not only does this top feel amazing, it is packed full of design features. It is a longer in length with a bias-cut hem so you can pull it down over leggings, or sit it up on your hips for a more rouched look. It is light enough to keep you cool, but with features such as it’s cowl neck, thumb holes and kangaroo pocket, it is cosy and warm too, so a brilliant allrounder for your active wear wardrobe.
The Zeus polo shirt, this would be great for tennis, golf, or any of your favourite ways to keep fit outdoors. With contrast colour stitching and side panels to give it something extra. Bamboo also gives natural UV protection which is always key when you are exercising during the spring and summer.
This is just a taster of our new sustainable bamboo collection, check out the full range here.
