Information

Luxuriously Silky soft

Spun fibres of bamboo feel and drape like silk and have a naturally lustrous finish which is further enhanced by the satin weave of our sheeting fabric. 

Sheet and doona cover sets are 320 thread count per 2.54cm which is comparable to 1000 and 1200 in other bed sheet fabrics.

The hand and face towels are 400gsm for faster drying. 

Baby wraps are 320 thread count satin weave.

Thermal Regulating

Due to the unique properties of bamboo, perspiration is wicked away from the body, which inhibits the production of bacteria reducing body odour and keeping us drier and more comfortable. 

Bamboo fibre bed sheets are cool in summer, warm in winter. 

Bamboo is 3 or 4 times more absorbent than cotton making you cooler in the warmer weather. 

The hollow fibre also has the effect of trapping heat to keep you warmer in colder weather. This has additional benefits for those who are pregnant, who are experiencing menopause or night sweats and for those who share a bed with someone who has a different body temperature. 

Anti-bacterial and Hypoallergenic

Bamboo's natural antimicrobial agent Bamboo Kuhn helps prevent the formation of bacteria, which helps retard the growth of mold, mildew and fungus. 

Bamboo bed sheets are dust mite resistant. 

Even after manufacture bamboo fabrics retain their antibacterial qualities, which keeps your products fresher for longer and also makes them suitable for those who have skin sensitivities, eczema, asthma, hay fever etc.

Organically produced Bamboo fibre is a renewable sustainable resource

Bamboo does not require replanting after harvesting because its vast root network continually sprouts new shoots, pulling in sunlight and greenhouse gases and converting them to new green growth. 

Growing bamboo improves soil quality and helps rebuild eroded soil. 

The extensive root system of bamboo holds the soil together preventing soil erosion. 

Organic bamboo does all this the natural way without the need for tractors, pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers or the need for water, additional to that which nature provides. 

Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on earth and some bamboo can grow a metre a day. 

No genetically modified organisms. 

Do not contain formaldehyde.

Bamboo plantations reduce greenhouse gases by absorbing about 5 times the amount of carbon dioxide and producing about 35% more oxygen than an equivalent stand of trees. 

Bamboo fibre is 100% biodegradable and can be completely decomposed in the soil by micro-organisms and sunlight without decomposing into any pollutants such as methane gas, commonly produced as a by-product of decomposition in landfills.

Caring for your bamboo products

Cool wash separately before use and line dry. Subsequent washes should be with similar colours on a gentle cycle. 

If you need to tumble dry use a cool setting and remove your bamboo products from the dryer then fold promptly to avoid unnecessary creasing.

Not only does bamboo fabric require less frequent washing, it also needs a cold or tepid wash, which is another benefit for our environment. Choose an eco friendly laundry product which does not have optical brighteners. 

Do not use chlorine bleach, fabric softener or harsh chemical washing detergents which contain optical brighteners and the wonderful qualities of Bamboo will remain.

Optical brighteners 

Optical brighteners are synthetic fluorescing chemicals added to laundry detergents to make clothing appear whiter, brighter and cleaner. These chemicals remain on the fabric to obtain a brighter look.

These chemicals transform UV light waves to enhance blue light and minimise the amount of yellow light. In other words, they really don't get your clothes any cleaner they just appear whiter and brighter. You can detect optical brighteners using a special UV or black light and will notice that your clothes literally glow.

These chemicals also stay in the environment for many years.

Using a laundry product that contains these chemicals may damage the natural dye and fibres which can create pilling. Using a laundry product that contains these chemicals will void your product guarantee.
Making fabric from Bamboo - 
What Wikpedia says about bamboo textiles

The woody parts of the bamboo plant are crushed and natural enzymes are used to produce a mushy mass where fibres are combed out and made into yarn using a mechanical method.

This process is an environmentally sustainable, eco-friendly process similar to that used in the production on Tencel, Viscose and rayon. 

ACCC guidelines ensure consumer protection 

The Australian Consumer and Competition Commission are responsible for enforcing the Trade Practices Act and for promoting consumer protection and fair trade practices in Australia.

An ACCC check has shown that all representations regarding certifications have been substantiated. 

Oeko-Tex Standard 100 OCIA International 

Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification is a worldwide safety standard and eco-label for textiles.

Introduced in 1992 the Oeko-Tex standard 100 tests fabrics for harmful chemicals which could be absorbed through our skin. Internationally recognised uniform standard for all stages of fabric production from raw material to end use products. 

Tested for formaldehyde content, pesticides, heavy metals, chlorinated organic carriers, toxic preservatives as well as dyes which could cause skin irritations. 

Organic Certification (USDA)

USDA Organic labelling indicates that the agricultural product has been produced through approved methods that integrate cultural, biological, and mechanical practices that foster recycling of resources, promotes ecological balance and conserves biodiversity. Synthetic fertilisers, sewage sludge, irradiation and genetic engineering may not be used.
