At BAM we are on a mission to be Impact Positive – we want every item of clothing you buy from BAM to have a positive impact on the planet. You can read about how we’re doing it in our Journey to becoming Impact Positive.
Bamboo is super-soft
Bamboo is to cotton what cashmere is to wool – a softer and more luxurious feel. Our fabrics feel amazing next to even the most sensitive skin.
In addition to being soft, bamboo viscose is 3 times more absorbent than cotton. Because it absorbs moisture away from your skin, you feel dry and comfortable.
Stays fresh for longer
It’s the bacteria that makes your clothing smell. Because moisture doesn’t sit on the surface of our fabric – as it does with synthetic fabrics – air can’t get to the odour-causing bacteria. Your clothing stays fresher for longer and you get more wears before needing to wash it.
Kind to skin
For allergy prone skin, bamboo fabric is perfect. It’s anti-static and is soft against your skin so it doesn’t irritate.
With bamboo we can create clothing that is dense enough to be warm and yet breathable so you don’t overheat. Exercise often involves getting cold then warm then cold again and wearing bamboo helps you keep an even temperature.
A sustainable product thats good for the enviroment
You know that trees are good for the environment, bamboo is even better
Bamboo helps clean the air we breathe. Bamboo grass absorbs five time more CO2 from the air than the equivalent amount of hardwood trees. Not only that, two thirds of the carbon is stored in the soil and root system which – unlike trees and cotton – isn’t dug up when the bamboo is harvested so the carbon stays in the ground. Bamboo also releases 35% more oxygen than its hardwood tree equivalent.
No polluting pesticides
Bamboo doesn’t need pesticides in order to thrive. Pesticides can contaminate fresh drinking water supplies and cause serious damage to soil health and surrounding ecosystems.
Reduce your footprint
Because bamboo stays fresh for longer, it needs less washing. The way we do laundry has a huge ecological effect and cutting back on washing (and particularly tumble drying) drastically reduces the carbon footprint of your clothing.
