With sustainability and comfort being some of the most important factors for trending clothing, bamboo pajamas are rising above the rest – it’s not just a snack for pandas.
Bamboo pajamas and clothing are becoming increasingly popular as an eco-friendly and sustainable alternative to traditional fabrics, like polyester, cotton, or blends of the two. Bamboo is a versatile, renewable resource that multiplies and requires little water, making it a solid choice for clothing production (and for viral revenge stories on Reddit).
To learn about some of the benefits of bamboo pajamas, read more below.
What is Bamboo Clothing?
Bamboo clothing is made from bamboo fibers extracted from the plant’s stem and leaves. The process is:
- Breaking down the bamboo into a pulp
- Spinning it into threads and weaving it into fabrics
The resulting fabric is soft, lightweight, and breathable, making it a comfortable choice for eco-friendly fashionistas.
Benefits of Bamboo Clothing
Bamboo is one of the fastest-growing plants in the world, and it requires very little water to grow – making it eco-friendly and sustainable. It also doesn’t need any pesticides or fertilizers to grow boundlessly, making it an eco-friendly and sustainable choice for clothing production. Additionally, bamboo can be harvested without killing the plant, which means that as it regrows over the following sixty days, it is then used again and again.
Bamboo clothing is incredibly soft. Softer than any other fabric I’ve ever felt, in fact. It has a natural sheen and a silky texture that feels like a waterfall. It’s also lightweight and breathable, making it perfect for warmer climates or layering during colder months.
Bamboo also tends to absorb moisture away from the skin and evaporate sweat quickly. It also has natural antibacterial properties, which means it can resist the growth of bacteria and fungi for those of us with allergies or sensitive skin.
That sanitary element is why new parents and self-proclaimed “bamboo moms” love this stuff for their little ones.
Additionally, bamboo is much more durable than any other type of fabric and can last for years with proper care. It’s also resistant to pilling, so it won’t develop those annoying little balls of material that can make clothing look worn out. Just make sure that your bamboo blends aren’t tainted with too many other substances, or else the long-lasting effects of the bamboo won’t come through.
About Bamboo Pajamas
While having luxuriously soft work shirts or shorts are wonderful, the best place to feel cozy in some silky smooth fabric is in bed – which is why bamboo pajamas are all the rage now. In particular, my Cozy Earth pajamas provide everything one could ever hope for from bamboo sleepwear. With just a little spandex, they have just the right about of stretch and bounce for those who toss and turn.
One issue with bamboo clothing is the price. Unfortunately, you’ll have to pay top dollar for the purest bamboo. And while the Cozy Earth pajamas aren’t cheap, the quality is excellent, and you’ve invested in them for the long term. Also, many TikTokkers who also love Cozy Earth have promotional codes to slash that cost for you.
