Should you think about what your panties are made of? Is it really that important? Here at CaroQuilla we certainly think so. We want our garments to make you feel good both on the outside and the inside. So why did we choose bamboo?
The benefits of bamboo fabrics are endless. Not only are they naturally eco-friendly, but they are also resilient and super soft. How is bamboo eco-friendly? Well, let's take a look at this in a little more detail.
Earth-friendly- the choice for Sustainability.
Bamboo textiles are seen as eco-friendly due to the sustainability merits of the plant. It can be grown without artificial irrigation in its own natural environment. Requiring only rainwater, some species can grow up to 120cm per day! Isn't that unbelievable? In fact, it holds the Guinness World Record for being the world's fastest-growing plant. Another environmental positive of bamboo is that it has a particularly extensive root system that grows new shoots each year after being cut. New stems can be harvested again and again making it self-sustaining. It is fast-growing and regenerating, maturing to harvest after only three-five years. In addition, the extensive root system reduces soil erosion by up to 75% - soil erosion decreases crop fertility and can lead to flooding.
Bamboo can be grown organically as it requires no pesticides, no insecticides, and no fertilizers. A bamboo plantation produces up to 35% more oxygen, and absorbs four times as much carbon, than an equivalent area of hardwood trees improving air quality.
This is all great information for the environment right? But it doesn't help if your bamboo panties just end up in the landfill. The beauty of bamboo is that it is biodegradable. The decomposition process doesn’t cause any pollution to the environment. Our landfills are already too full, and man-made fibers take several lifetimes to degrade. We want to use a green material that will simply return to the earth at the end of its life as a garment.
Although a bonus, the environmental impact of your underwear is probably not one of your buying considerations. No one wants to wear panties that are uncomfortable no matter how environmentally friendly they are. However, bamboo is certainly not lacking in this area. It is ultra-soft, very gentle on your skin, and if you haven’t tried bamboo before, your skin will thank you!
Not only is it luxurious, but it is practical too. More absorbent than cotton, bamboo is breathable and moisture-wicking. The structure of the bamboo fibers contains micro-gaps, which provide ventilation and wick moisture away from the body, allowing the skin to breathe. Bamboo is highly durable and well-fitting meaning that your panties are built to last. As a thermo-regulating material, it is great for exercising in all conditions keeping you cozy in the Winter and cool in the Summer.
The right choice.
It’s clear that there is no better material than bamboo for our underwear here at CaroQuilla. We want women to feel confident in their panties - not only because they look and feel good, but because they embrace an environmentally friendly approach. By choosing bamboo we can provide you with durable but gentle panties that are luxuriously comfortable.
