For years the sports industry has been developing activewear using manmade fibres in the search for the ultimate breathable, moisture wicking, temperature adjusting, antibacterial and comfortable solution.
Bamboo has been waiting to be turned into the very best eco-friendly high performance clothing and underwear for yoga, gym, fitness and running. Bamboo Bliss produces beautiful, high performance bamboo activewear including sports and yoga leggings, sports bras, bamboo socks and underwear.
Bamboo clothing absorbs moisture up to four times faster than cotton. This allows the fabric to wick moisture quickly away from the body while working out, keeping the skin dry and comfortable. Bamboo fabric can actually absorb three times its weight in water! The absorbent and durable qualities of bamboo clothing make it a superior choice for outdoor sports activities.
A recent study published by the International Journal of Thermal Sciences revealed that fabrics containing a higher percentage of bamboo fibres provided an increased level of thermal regulation. Bamboo microfibers are also filled with tiny holes and gaps in their structure that provide ventilation. Because it’s breathable, bamboo clothing allows the body to stay cool in warmer weather.
Key bamboo fabric benefits:
- Antibacterial – keeps you odour free and feeling and smelling fresh
- Highly sweat absorbent (Pulls moisture from skin for evaporation – moisture wicking) – keeps you dry
- Powerfully insulating – keeps you cooler in summer and warmer in winter
- One of the softest fabrics on the planet
- Naturally UV protectant – important while excercising outside in Australia
- Hypoallergenic – natural bamboo does not cause allergic reactions
- Most eco-friendly fabric on the planet
