Charcoal bamboo is 100% organic, burned inside an oven at temperatures over 1000°C. This process creates a nanoparticle bamboo charcoal powder, which is then spun into organic bamboo fabric. The powder acts much like carbon in a filtration system, where activated particles bind to organic waste and help remove it. Means your bedding will be that much cleaner thanks to the bamboo charcoal.
How does it compare to typical organic bamboo or organic cotton fibers?
Because the powder is spun into organic fabric to produce this textile, it retains much of the original benefits of the original fabric, but gains the above added properties as well. So it outperforms in terms of absorbency, hypoallergenicity, and deodorization – plus anti-bacterial properties.
Why not cotton or other fabrics?
The bamboo raw material used in our fabric is natural growth, without use of chemical pesticides, indicating it’s organic. In addition, Oko-Tex standard 100 sets strict standards for the amount of harmful substances contained in textiles, which is what our bamboo products adhere to.
Compared to fields of cotton or stands of trees, there are a lot of environmental advantages to using bamboo.
First, bamboo grows very rapidly, a few days or weeks harvest being equivalent to an entire season’s harvest of cotton. It does this with far less irrigation than that required for cotton, making it less of a drain on our resources.
In the case of trees, which when cut, take decades to regrow, the renewability is even more apparent. Bamboo stabilizes the earth through it’s roots much more so than cotton, preventing erosion, and produces 35% more oxygen than the same sized stand of trees.
Referred to as “the Black Diamond” in Japan and Southeast Asia, bamboo charcoal fiber use is an emerging trend in the fashion industry as manufacturers look to combine fashion with function.
