Why bamboo is the best choice of fabric

Why bamboo?

When it comes to picking the perfect pair of tights and leggings for you, you’ll want a design that’s soft, comfy, durable, stretchy and breathable. Look no further than our signature organically-grown bamboo material. But what is it that makes bamboo such a dream fabric?

It’s comfy

Anyone who feels our clothing knows it is light, luxuriously-soft and gentle on the skin. Bamboo clothing takes comfort to a whole new level, which is actually what you want your tights to provide. Perfect for slipping on every day and extra ideal for layering.

It’s breathable

The structure of the bamboo fibres contains micro-gaps, which provide ventilation and pull moisture away from the body. This means bamboo fabric allows the skin to breathe – perfect for an essential style of clothing you’ll be wearing often such as tights and leggings.

It’s sustainable

From being grown organically to being grown without artificial irrigation, bamboo is an eco-friendly and sustainable choice of fabric. What’s more, we champion a slow-fashion design and ethos here at Boody, meaning we encourage less consumption and less waste.

It’s thermoregulating

Warm and cosy in winter and cool and lightweight in summer, bamboo material is ideal for everyday wear and exercise in all conditions. Bamboo’s thermoregulating properties makes it a fantastic fabric choice for tights and leggings.

It’s antibacterial

Last but not least, bamboo contains an antibacterial and antifungal bio-agent which is retained through the process of fabrication after washing several times. This same property also makes Boody essentials odour-resistant. Smells as good as it feels!
