Why Is Bamboo Fiber A Good Choice For Clothing Fabric?





During the late 19th and 20th centuries, synthetic fibers took over the textile industry. The products manufactured from it dominated the world and were in high demand all across the globe.

This was primarily because the goods produced from such fibers cost significantly less and were very durable. So people from all over the world were charmed by them. The garment complexes were no exception to this.


But in the last decade, things have started changing yet again and the markets are registering yet another shift, a more positive pivot in the history of the world's textile industry.

The supremacy of bamboo as a clothing fabric:


Antibacterial

Bamboo is a supreme clothing material when compared to many others because of its antibacterial and anti-fungal features. As a fibre, bamboo is comprised of a bacteriostatic bio-agent known as ‘Bamboo Kun’. This bio-agent allows bamboo to grow naturally in the wild without the use of pesticides or chemicals. This quality of bamboo is retained in its textile form. Hence, a clothing article made of 100% bamboo knit fibre cloth kills all the bacteria that other fabrics allow to propagate. Keeping the wearer hygienic and odor-free for long durations.
