Bamboo VS Cotton

Our amigos have deliberately chosen for bamboo instead of cotton. They are convinced that bamboo is the fabric of future. Bamboo is a true survivor because it keeps growing after it is cut. Along with all the other unparalleled features of bamboo, our amigos consider this fabric totally unique! You can find out why below.

What about cotton?

 

Water

Water consumption

Pesticiden

Pesticides

Approximately 16% of the total global use of pesticides goes towards growing cotton.

Insecticiden

Insecticides

Bodemerosie 

Soil erosion

Cotton is a thirsty crop and thereby causes depletion, salinization and erosion.

Strijken

Ironing

Cotton is a type of fabric that creases quickly and often needs to be ironed.

 

As you can see above, our amigos made the right decision to make underwear from bamboo. Keep Cool! They keep looking for even more environmentally friendly ways to produce bamboo textile. At present, our amigos found a way to use closed systems during the viscose process so that no chemical waste is released into the environment. Bamboo is therefore becoming more eco-friendly by the day, which is why our amigos are convinced that bamboo is the fabric of the future!
