100% Bamboo Ltd offers towels made from bamboo fibre- available online and at in selected high street stores in Surrey.
Whereas the bed linen and blankets are 100% Bamboo, the towels are a 50% bamboo/cotton blend giving the towels the loft of cotton, and the absorbency of bamboo, which is 3 to 4 times greater than cotton, while retaining other naturally occurring benefits of bamboo such as anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, quick drying, moisture wicking and durability.
Why Bamboo is better for you
Environmentalists love the idea of using bamboo in the products we utilize every day, such as bed linens and towels. Bamboo is part of the grass family that has strong roots in Chinese culture. It is 100% renewable and grows extremely fast. Bamboo products, such as towels and linens, are made of fibres from the stalks of the bamboo plant. This makes it an economical choice for those concerned about wasting our planet's precious resources.
Antibacterial & Antimicrobial
This may seem to be a strange quality for towels to possess, but bamboo products actually have antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. This comes from the fact that bamboo itself is extremely resistant to bacteria and the overgrowth of microorganisms. When a person really stops to think about it, our towels and linens are certainly one place where we do not want bacteria looming. With dead skin cells, sweat, dirt, oil, and other things coming into contact with our towels every day, this line of reasoning makes towels with antibacterial properties all the more appealing.
Easy Care & Long Lasting
Bamboo towels are very easy to care for. They are able to be washed and dried by machine and require no extra care. They're also extremely soft, like high thread cotton, but actually get softer the longer they're used and the more they're washed. This makes them a prime choice for individuals who are looking for towels that will hold up well over time.
Although bamboo towels may cost slightly more than their typical cotton counterparts, their ability to last exceptionally long makes up for any price differences. The added fact that they actually feel softer the longer they're used will make just a small investment last for decades. While cotton towels will begin to feel rougher as their threads begin to break down over time, the opposite is true of bamboo. Therefore spending an average of £20 for a Bath sheet isn't a bad deal if buyers consider how long they will last and the fact that they improve in quality with use.
