Checking out Bamboo Textiles

For many centuries certain parts of the world have embraced the bamboo stalk as a source for a variety of different building materials and even for a select few articles of clothing.

Bamboo has been used for floors and other building purposes and for making clothing accessories like hats and bags and even shoes. For the most part nobody had ever been able to develop a process to fully break down the tough fibers and produce the textiles required to make clothing items like pants and tops or baby clothes.

This process was successfully discovered in the recent past and from that time more and more textile products are being produced from this incredibly sustainable and quick growing plant.

Bamboo fibers can now be broken down to make a whole host of products like yarn and cloth that are then used to make exceptionally durable and comfortable clothing products.

The natural fibers of bamboo are excellent for clothing because it is so breathable and soft that it makes an excellent choice for baby clothes in particular. They may have much more sensitive skin than adults do and can benefit from the ability of bamboo and other organic material textiles to help regulate body temperature. This is so important for the health of babies.

The fact that bamboo is so durable as well makes it great for older children. It can stand up to the rigors of the adventures that children find themselves experiencing.

The added benefit of these qualities is that bamboo is a very sustainable plant and grows in areas that may suffer from economic instability. The harvesting of this plant for more and more textile products will help to alleviate some of this abject poverty. It can do this by giving bamboo growers an opportunity to sell their harvested bamboo to markets that before may have been unavailable.

This truly makes bamboo a win-win prospect for both growers and textile manufacturers alike with the added bonus of producing quality, sustainable sourced products for those in industrialized countries who are concerned about the environment to purchase.
