The foundation for everything we make

Bamboo is the fastest growing and most versatile plant in the world. No pesticides, insecticides or fertilizers - bamboo is naturally organic and doesn’t require chemicals to enhance its growth. Its fiber uses a non-toxic, closed-loop system, resulting in a silky-soft weave that’s soft on your skin and gentle on our planet. We’re all about mindful manufacturing and take a holistic approach to sustainability.

Organically Grown Bamboo

1. Grows organically, without chemicals

Our bamboo is grown in the rainy Sichuan province of China and relies solely on rainfall to grow. Bamboo is grown without fertilizers or pesticides and requires no irrigation, only rainwater. The fast-growing, raw bamboo stems are cut into chunks, ready for the next step.

2. A closed-loop system

The raw bamboo is soaked in an organic solution to soften. The system is closed-loop - all liquid is recycled and all solvents are captured and removed to ensure that the process is as eco-friendly as the bamboo itself.

3. Dehydration and grind

The dehydration process allows us to extract the bamboo pulp that is then dried into flat sheets. When the bamboo sheets are completely dry, they are ground into a soft fabric.

4. Zero-waste design

The fabric is then extruded and spun into a viscose yarn that we use to knit our garments. The garments are knitted in tubes resulting in very little fabric wastage and seamfree design.

Facts behind the fiber

Bamboo is in fact a type of grass - a very fast growing and giant grass.

Bamboo absorbs more carbon dioxide from the air than either cotton or timber. It also releases more oxygen into the environment which improves air quality.

Bamboo is highly absorbent and wicks water away from the body 3 to 4 times faster than cotton.

Keeps You Happy and Healthy

Superbly soft

Bamboo viscose is luxuriously soft and particularly suitable for those with extra sensitive skin.

Breathable & moisture-wicking

The structure of the bamboo viscose contains micro-gaps, which provide ventilation and evaporates moisture that causes bacteria to multiply.

UPF50+ sun protection

All Boody garments are made from a UPF50+ rated bamboo fabric that will protect you from ultraviolet (UV) damage.

Did You Know?

The bamboo viscose weave regulates the temperature between your body and the air, making you feel warmer when it is cold.

The smooth bamboo viscose strands do not snag against each other, and won't cause a blockage in the gaps of the weave. Breathe easy.

The evaporation, which naturally occurs, drives moisture to continually travel towards the surfaces of each bamboo viscose.

Promotes Sustainability

Grown organically

No pesticides. No insecticides. No fertilizers. The original bamboo is naturally organic and doesn’t require fertilizers to enhance its growth.

No artificial irrigation

Producing harvests of bamboo requires only rainwater and all water used in the production process is recycled and reused.

Improving air quality

Bamboo benefits extend beyond style and comfort. Bamboo plantations produce 30% more oxygen than an equivalent area of trees and absorb more carbon dioxide and greenhouse gases.

Fast growing, regenerating

Bamboo is the fastest growing and most versatile plant in the world, with some species of bamboo shooting up as much as one meter a day. Bamboo also helps to prevent soil erosion by promoting better soil health and restoring its nutrients.

Did You Know?

New bamboo stems are able to be harvested repeatedly.

Bamboo is in fact a type of grass - a very fast growing and giant grass.

Bamboo has more than 2,000 uses around the world.
