General Note about bedding:
“Beds can become reservoirs of human cells, bacteria and bodily excretions. Humans shed half an ounce of skin each week – and a lot of that will be in the bed,” says Dr Ackerley. Warm, moist environments are also ideal breeding grounds for dust mites, with the average bed containing 10 million of them! Their feces can trigger allergic reactions.
The build-up of bacteria from your sweat and skin cells can become "significant" in as little as a week. Your mouth and nose are very close to those sheets so you're breathing in those spores. In hot weather we sweat more, creating the perfect conditions for bacteria and fungus to spread.
Each morning, pull back the duvet and open the window to release moisture and humidity. Change your sheets each week.
By doing this you can ensure mold spore don't invade your sleep space and extend the longevity of your bedding!
Luxury and Comfort
Bamboo textiles are smooth and a natural sheen to the surface and feels like silk or cashmere. The structure of bamboo provides superior ventilation and wicking that keeps the user cool and comfortable when hot, and warm in cooler temperatures. Bamboo sheets will keep you dry all night long because they don't heat up as much as polyester and cotton blended sheets.
When you sleep and enter REM sleep (a very deep sleep) your body gets hot. Cotton sheets holds the heat causing moisture to develop; this is how sheets gets damp and cause bacterial and germs. Bamboo fiber on the other hand has thousands of micro fiber gaps that controls and absorb moisture and drys as soon as it develops.
Less Drying Time
Obviously, fabrics that dries quickly makes life easier, saves time and energy. Unlike 90% of the cotton fabrics on the market, bamboo fabrics has thousands of micro fiber gaps that evaporate moisture quickly, saving you time and money.
Bamboo bed linen can be cleaned with cold water and uses less water to clean. When machine washing, 80% of the energy is used to heat the water. By using cold water, you can reduce the energy used by up to 40% while still getting your laundry brilliantly clean and sanitized. There is no need to use fabric softeners, the linen will stay beautifully soft without softeners.
Bamboo fiber is a biodegradable textile material. As a natural cellulose fiber, it can be 100% biodegraded in soil by microorganisms and sunshine. The decomposition process doesn't cause any pollution to the environment.
Bamboo owns a unique anti microbial bio-agent called "bamboo kun." Textiles made of bamboo have natural antibacterial, anti fungal and odor resistant properties, even after multiple washings.
Bamboo is the most sustainable and renewable resource in the world. Some varieties can grow up to an incredible 4 1/2 feet a day. When it is cut, bamboo begins a new cycle of growth immediately (just like grass), without any need for re-planting.
The anti microbial bio-agent "bamboo kun" prevents bacteria from cultivating; bamboo kun can therefore help eradicate bacteria from your bamboo bedding. This creates an allergy barrier which makes bamboo bedding ideal for asthma and allergy sufferers as no bacteria can breed on it.
Strong and Durable
The high compression and tensile strength in bamboo makes it maintain it's quality and softness longer than synthetics and cotton.
