Bring in the green! This 100% Bamboo fabric is natural and eco-friendly. Naturally anti-bacterial and odor-resistant, even after washing. Nearly three times more absorbent than cotton, the fibers of the bamboo plant are naturally porous, so they absorb and wick moisture away from the skin, keeping you cool and dry.
Durable and strong - the thinness and whiteness degree of bamboo fiber is similar to classic viscose. Bamboo fabrics can look and drape like silk. They resist wrinkling and have passed flammability requirements without the addition of formaldehyde. Low Maintenance: Cold water wash, iron medium and tumble dry low.
