Bamboo fabric continues to gain its foothold in the line of clothing and bedlinen over the year, placing its popularity at par with other high-grade textiles such as Egyptian cotton, Tencel and silk. Bamboo fabric is usually sought after based on its appealing traits, particularly the eco-friendly manufacturing procedures, soft and silky texture, breathability, hypoallergenic, non-absorbent and long-lasting.
There are three main bamboo types of fabric, based on their production processes:
- Viscose- It is another name for bamboo rayon and the most commonly used for fabric. More durable and easier to tend to. It is smooth to the touch, naturally hypoallergenic, and thermoregulating. Contain high moisture-wicking properties and a natural antimicrobial bio-agent known as bamboo kun that helps resist bacteria and odor.
- Lyocell- Has low thermal stability, thus strongly advised against constant exposure to heat to prolong its longevity. Need proper and gentler care due to its delicate texture.
- Fine bamboo- also known as bamboo fiber or bamboo linen. Its texture is coarser compared to the other two and less comfortable. More prone to wrinkling.
