      The bamboo plant grows like a weed. bamboo does not need a lot of water and no pesticides to grow, compared to cotton. Since bamboo regrows from its own roots and grows very quickly, it is easy to grow and does little harm to the environment.
      Bamboo is antibacterial, hypoallergenic, silky and protects against UV rays (be careful, we are talking about dye-free fibers). Bamboo frequently appears in textiles as rayon from bamboo. To achieve this, we start from bamboo fiber, transform it into viscous material using chemicals and then spin it. This process makes the fiber smoother and stronger, making it easier to use to create the fabric.
      Several studies are underway to find a method as ecological for transforming bamboo into yarn as that used for its cultivation. In addition, no study confirms that the natural properties of bamboo are preserved during this transformation.
