Bamboo also has many antibacterial qualities, which bamboo fabric is able to retain, even through multiple washings. This helps to reduce bacteria that thrive on clothing and cause unpleasant odours.

It can also kill odours causing bacteria that live on the skin, making the wearer and his or her clothing smell less. In addition, bamboo fabric has insulating properties and will keep the wearer cooler in summer and warmer in winter.

The versatility of bamboo fabric makes it an excellent choice for clothing designers exploring alternative textiles.  In addition, the fabric is able to take bright dye colours well, drape smoothly and star in a variety of roles from knit shirts to woven skirts, scarves and linen.

Because of its deodorisation properties, it also makes this fabric ideal for cloth nappy making, reducing the smells you usually get and that are associated with hemp use in nappies.  Great too for socks you can say goodbye to those smelly feet issues!
