A bamboo tee is a versatile wardrobe staple that offers a high level of comfort and performance. Bamboo fabric is soft, breathable and naturally anti-bacterial and resistant to wrinkles. When produced sustainably, bamboo tees have a low environmental impact at every stage of the production process.
The natural thermoregulatory properties of bamboo also help to keep you cool on hot days, making it a fantastic option for t-shirts that you will be wearing outside. When compared to cotton, bamboo is up to 2 degrees cooler due to its wicking and moisture absorbing properties.
Bamboo t-shirts are also more durable than cotton shirts, as they can withstand more wear and tear. They are resistant to abrasions and can easily be reshaped to fit your body. Additionally, bamboo t-shirts are odour resistant and offer UV protection. These characteristics make them a great option for athletes and workouts that require a lot of movement.
In terms of sustainability, bamboo is a much more efficient crop than cotton. It requires significantly less water to grow and does not need chemical fertilizers or pesticides, limiting the amount of chemicals in the environment. Additionally, bamboo does not need to be replanted or ploughed, which helps to preserve soil and reduce erosion.
Although bamboo is an eco-friendly material, it is important to note that the process of turning bamboo into a fabric does use chemicals. However, this is a small part of the process and does not have a significant impact on the environment when compared to non-organic cotton or synthetic fabrics.
Our men’s long sleeve bamboo tee is made from a blend of 68%bamboo, 27%cotton and 5%spandex for a silky soft feel and stretch. They are incredibly comfortable and stay 2 degrees cooler than a traditional cotton tee thanks to the thermoregulatory qualities of bamboo viscose.
We have sourced the best bamboo viscose available in the world, which is made from Moso bamboo, known for its strength and durability, being 2x stronger than regular bamboo species and 4-5x stronger than hardwood. They are then dyed using the low impact and environmentally friendly water based dyes to create a range of stunning colours.
