The Pros and Cons of Bamboo Bed Sheets


What’s all the fuss about? Maybe you’ve seen bamboo linen featured in Vogue. Heard it talked about on the radio. Or you’ve worn some fabulous clothes made from bamboo. With our bamboo bed linen, it’s something that needs to be experienced, but we’ll give it a go at putting it to words and focusing on the pros and cons of bamboo sheets.



Bamboo fibres


Bamboo fiber sheets are made from this fast-growing renewable resource, which scores points with environmentally conscious consumers. No chemicals are added in the manufacturing process and the fabric produced is naturally hypoallergenic and antibacterial. The softness of its fiber is comparable to cashmere, but more durable and resistant. The fabric made with fleshy pulp is strong and durable like tall bamboo stems and can withstand years of use. Like cotton, this fabric breathes and is absorbent; it keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter. And because bamboo is less permeable to odors, the period between washing sheets may be more distant.



PROS


Comfort and luxury


Bamboo fiber is incredibly soft, durable and can be modified to look like silk or cashmere. It is more absorbent than other fibers, eliminates moisture and dries quickly. It is adaptive, versatile and more affordable than before.


Best of all fabric worlds


Although the bamboo fiber is strong, it is very soft, which gives a silky texture. In the finest weave, the texture is comparable to cashmere, with the warm comfort of the flannel while having the breathable freshness property of Lycra and other synthetic blends.


Great for all climates


The weave of our linen will allow the material to breathe while keeping you cosy. They’ll keep you cool in the summer, and warm in the winter.


A quality investment for years to come


Bamboo is very durable, with a lifespan up to three times that of regular cotton sheets. Cared for properly, your bamboo linen will remain soft for years.


Anti-bacterial and hypoallergenic


Bamboo sheets and their antibacterial properties are a great choice for those who suffer from allergies or have sensitive skin.


Green and good for the planet


Bamboo is a renewable resource and grows rapidly. While many regular bedding fabrics use harsh chemicals in their processes, our bamboo linen is organic. Unlike manufacturing processes for other fabrics, bamboo linen uses much less water. Plus, it has lighter footprint, as your bamboo linen’s long life means you won’t purchase new linen any time soon.




CONS


It’s an investment


Bamboo products may be initially more expensive than their cotton or polyester equivalents. The 400 thread count of your linenly bedsheets (the premium thread count for bamboo linen, which is equivalent to 1000 TC cotton), the careful manufacturing, packaging and quality control processes all mean that your linen is an investment. 


However, our direct sales to you allows us to provide competitive, accessible pricing while retaining the bamboo linen’s quality, luxury and value.
