Bamboo Fiber: What is it? Why use it?

What is Bamboo Fiber?

Bamboo fiber is a natural textile made from the pulp of bamboo grass. It is heavily utilised in Asia for a range of uses such as: cooking, construction, transport, textiles and medicine. In recent years it has become a more mainstream material for use in everyday life, especially textiles. That is why we manufactured the GymBoo Bamboo Gym Towel with some of the world’s best bamboo fiber.

Bamboo is Environmentally Friendly

Bamboo is a remarkable and highly versatile natural resource, it is considered one of the most sustainable plants in the world. It is very easy to grow, requires no pesticides or other chemicals, and biodegrades more quickly than other alternatives making it an environmentally friendly option. The plants also require much less water than cotton or trees, providing another benefit for production in textiles.

Stronger and Softer than Cotton

Another remarkable trait about bamboo fiber is that it is notably stronger, softer, more durable and better at keeping its shape when compared to cotton and cared for properly. It is so soft that it has been compared to some of the more luxurious fabrics like silk and Egyptian cotton but without the expensive price tag.

Antibacterial by Nature

One of the most amazing properties of bamboo fiber is its natural antibacterial properties called “Bamboo Kun”. These bio-agents help reduce the bacteria that thrive on clothing and linen, requiring less washing and reducing odours. This makes bamboo gym towels such a fantastic idea. Gone are the days of sweaty gym towels and here are the days of odourless gym bags.

Bamboo is Absorbent and Breathable

Moisture is everywhere even when we don’t notice it. Bamboo is 40% more absorbent than even the finest organic cotton, wicking moisture away from the skin much faster and keeping you dry and comfortable easier. Bamboo can take in three times more water than its weight which once made into a fabric, means that it also is able to get rid of moisture faster. These properties make GymBoo Bamboo Gym Towel such a premium towel.
