Bamboo fibre is the term used for the textile raw material obtained from the stem of the bamboo tree. Fibres for industrial textile processing have only been known since the end of the 20th century. It was not until 2007 that the yarn was introduced to the European market. It is a viscose fibre made from the bamboo tree, which is more pleasant to the touch than cotton. Bamboo fibre has natural antibacterial properties, thanks to the content of a substance called "KUN". Compared to cotton, bamboo is even up to 60% more resistant to the growth of bacteria, so the material resists odour even when worn for long periods of time. Bamboo fibre also has excellent thermoregulating properties. In hot weather, bamboo is naturally cool to the touch and this property is maintained for the knitted fabric properties.
Products made from this fibre are very pleasant to the touch, guarantee optimal thermal balance of the body, dry naturally and provide a long-lasting fresh feeling when worn.
