We Bet You Didn't Know This About Bamboo....
Did you know that some of Clementine's softest and most luxurious pieces are actually made from bamboo?
That's right! For centuries Bamboo has been used in Asia for cooking, construction, transport, and medicine but it's only been recently that the benefits of bamboo being used as a fabric has been discovered- and what a discovery it was!
Which is why Clementine chooses to use it for our sleepwear. The breathability, softness, luxurious feel and antibacterial qualities of the bamboo make it perfect for our Australian climate and it feels oh so good on your body!
So besides feeling like heaven on your body, what makes bamboo perfect for you?
Well for one, the bamboo fabric has an unusual level of breathability, making it incredibly cool and comfortable to wear. It is soft to touch and has better moisture absorption and ventilation compared to many other fabrics. Bamboo fabric garments make people feel cool and comfortable in hot conditions and can even be beneficial for women who are suffering from hot flushes associated with menopause. With its unique microstructure, bamboo fabric can absorb and evaporate human sweat very quickly.
The type of bamboo used for making fabric is commonly known as Moso (it even sounds exotic). It is non-irritating to the skin and many people who experience allergic reactions to other natural fibers, such as wool, do not appear to have issues with bamboo. In addition, bamboo is anti-static (hello!).
Something a lot of people are not aware of is the extra benefits of bamboo to women who are suffering from severe health conditions such as breast cancer or eczema.
One of the most common problems that women who are battling these conditions experience are the irritation of most fabrics against their skin, particularly women who have undergone treatment for cancer as the feel of any material against their skin can sometimes be painful.
This is where bamboo is a welcome alternative to the more commonly found cotton sleepwear that is on offer.
Why? Predominately due to its lightness, antibacterial qualities whilst still being able to maintain that luxurious feeling (because even in your darkest days every woman deserves to feel beautiful!).
So know that you are aware of one of Asia's best-kept secrets why not SPOIL YOURSELF a little and welcome some bamboo into your life!
