Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of bamboo?


Bamboo is such a good fabric for anyone to use. It has antifungal and antibacterial properties, is hypoallergenic, extremely breathable, temperature regulating, highly absorbent (4x more so than cotton), and for a bonus ridiculously soft. It is the perfect fabric for bedding, blankets and towels and all our products can be used comfortably all year round. To learn more about the benefits of bamboo, check out our page, 'Why Bamboo?'.




Is bamboo organic?


Bamboo is a grass that grows sustainably with no pesticides or chemicals. It regenerates rapidly once cut, making it extremely kind to nature as there is no risk of deforestation and therefore no risk to local wildlife. Our knitted blanket, towels and washcloths are all eco-cert certified organic.




How is bamboo turned into fabric?


All the bamboo used in our products is made from 100% bamboo viscose or lyocell. The process of converting bamboo wood pulp into bamboo lyocell fabric is the most sustainable, as all elements used in this manufacturing process are recyclable.




Is bamboo suitable for vegans?


Yes, bamboo is the perfect vegan friendly alternative to wool. It has all the same advantages and more. To learn more about the benefits of bamboo, check out our page all about bamboo.




How do I care for my bamboo products?


Whether 100% bamboo or 70% bamboo 30% cotton, our products are durable and get softer with each wash. To ensure that your bamboo remains in great condition, we recommend you washing at 30 degrees, and air drying. Everything (other than our knitted blankets), can be ironed on a low heat setting. For more information, be sure to check the individual product listing and wash labels.




Should I expect any shrinkage?


With Bamboo there is naturally a small amount of shrinkage after the first wash due to it’s moisture absorbing properties. To combat this our products have either been pre-shrunk, or made slightly larger than advertised, to ensure the perfect fit and maximum comfort. We recommend you machine wash all our products before use.




Are the totality of your products all made from natural sources?


All of our products are made from natural sources, including the labels and where relevant with eco-friendly plant based inks. At the moment some of our products are sewn with polyester thread, and the bands on the fitted sheets are elastic. However we are on a mission to make these elements of our products from natural sources too.
