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.

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.
We love these silky soft, high waisted Tamra leggings, with their all over botanical print.

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.
Need some longer sleeves now the temperatures are dropping? The Hestia T-Shirt also has thumb holes for extra warmth, and flexibility if you are pulling off some tricky yoga poses. With our quirky cross over back neck, this T-Shirt looks good as well as being more sustainable thanks to the bamboo rich fabric.
