Bamboo: A Murky Shade of Green

Wednesday, March 12, 2008

Ever since I first saw bamboo fabric I have had questions, so many questions.

Yes, the fibre spun into textiles is ohhh so soft and luxurious, almost seductively so. But how does that happen? Are we dancing with environmental danger if we choose bamboo for clothing?

Bamboo is a tree after all and it just boggles my mind that manufacturers can get a tough stalk like that made into a super soft fabric like they do.

Well, I came across this informative article today over at Wearing the Future and it turns out my wariness of bamboo for textiles was right on. Click for a very good read, found initially via Eco Geek.
