After considering various eco-friendly fabrics we decided bamboo jersey would be ideal for our garments.
Bamboo jersey is not only extremely soft and comfortable, it offers a host of advantages for both the wearer and the earth. All our birthwear contains Bamboo fibre, harnessing the natural powers of this wonderful sustainable fabric.
Reasons why bamboo jersey is the perfect choice for our birthwear
A durable yet superb fabric softness
A beautiful silky lustre to give a feminine finish
Crease-resistant so no need to iron
Better moisture absorption than cotton
Thermal-regulating, ‘cool in summer‘ and ‘warm in winter’
Superior ventilation and wonderfully breathable
Natural anti-bacterial and anti-static properties
Natural UV protection
Reasons why bamboo itself is so ecological
It is a sustainable, fast-growing, naturally regenerative plant
It is grown without pesticides or fertilizers
Absorbs greenhouse gasses and releases oxygen
Is organic and biodegradable
Bamboo jersey is machine washable, holds and keeps its colour and is quick to dry. It is made up of 65% bamboo, 28% cotton and 7% spandex (elastane).
The 65% bamboo fibre is enough for all its unique elements to work, and the advantage of the bamboo/cotton mix over 100% bamboo is a better quality feel.
The 7% Spandex makes the jersey fabric stretch for a better fit and support throughout your pregnancy, expandability for your bump and wonderful shape recovery so it can be worn post pregnancy.
