Bamboosa: Bamboo Fiber Clothing
Bamboosa makes clothing out of bamboo fiber blended with organic cotton. Sounds strange? Apparently bamboo makes a durable and very soft fabric. It has a natural sheen and feels similar to silk or cashmere. Like other natural fibers such as hemp, it is anti-bacterial, breathable and biodegradable. Bamboosa is a sweatshop-free company, and all its clothing is produced in a factory in Andrews, South Carolina. The bamboo is planted and grown on family-owned farms that have been in agricultural use for generations in China. Bamboosa also uses eco-friendly dyes and 100% recycled paper in their packaging.
