Babies deserve to be swaddled in the comfort of Bamboo Clothing

Your baby’s skin is one of the softest and most luxurious things you will ever touch. They are born soft to the touch and need to be protected from any materials that might scratch, abrade, or otherwise do harm to their tender exterior. Manmade clothing that is designed for wear by babies, children, their parents and other adults can now be manufactured with bamboo for a truly soft and gentle texture that has true lasting capability.

Amazingly soft Bamboo Clothing is organic and truly “Green”

Originally bamboo was used to make clothing that worked best for bustles and corsets, manufactured particularly for women’s apparel. Through improvements in the manufacturing processes bamboo is now considered to be among the softest yet most durable fabrics made today. It is common to find baby wear such as booties, blankets, as well as nappies for the very young along with mens and women’s clothing all manufactured from bamboo fibres. This clothing is not only soft and gentle on the skin but also has proven to be extremely durable and long lasting, equal at least to cotton materials and much softer than most polyester or combination polyester/cotton blends. Bamboo is also added to cotton and cotton blends as fibres which are interwoven when the materials are manufactured.

Historical use of Bamboo for clothing is well documented in Asia

Bamboo has long been used in China and Japan for the manufacture of clothing. Textile workers weave together thin strips of bamboo to form hats and shoes. This was accomplished well before the modern day methods of “softening” the bamboo that we know today. Those big floppy hats worn by many Asian fishermen and farmers are usually made from bamboo fibres made into strips and then woven together. That sturdy headgear helps protect the outdoor workers from the sun’s damage. Sandals are also popular when made with bamboo fibres due to the fact they hold up in water and while walking on rough terrain.

Bamboo used for clothing must pass certification in China

Companies in China are largely responsible for the manufacture of bamboo clothing and apparel. The processes involved with making such items as towels, blankets, linens, and particularly clothing must be approved and there are patents involved with the process, insuring each item is made from 100% pure bamboo. The stalks of bamboo are run through various processes to insure the soft and pliable materials are as pure and natural as possible. To insure the material that results from processing of the original bamboo stalks into something soft and luxurious to the touch strict regulation is in effect.

Soft baby nappies blankets and booties are the result of processing

Today’s modern yarn, made from the bamboo plant, is arrived at through processes that begin with gathering bamboo shoots, crushing them, putting them through a process known to steam then crush the materials. Next it is usually soaked in a safe sodium hydroxide which produces cellulose fibres. After this process it is dried and spun into strands of material which are then spun in a way similar to standard spinning of other materials such as cotton. The process of spinning the yarn then proceeds to manufacturing of clothing for babies as well as adults.
