Transforming Bamboo into Boody

Transforming Bamboo into Boody

 

Bamboo has traditionally been used for making huts, baskets, rafts and scaffolding... so how do bamboo shoots become beautifully soft, comfortable Boody garments? Here's the process by which we transform bamboo into Boody Bamboo Eco Wear.

 

Our Process

 

HOW WE CREATE BOODY

 

1. GROWN ORGANIC

Our bamboo is grown without fertilizers or pesticides and no irrigation, only rain water.

2. HARVEST

First, the green shoots are cut into chunks of raw bamboo.

3. PROCESS

Next, the bamboo is soaked in a solution to soften it. 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.

4. DEHYDRATE

The dehydration process allows us to extract the bamboo pulp that is then dried into flat sheets.

5. GRIND

When the bamboo sheets are completely dry, they are ground into a soft, feathery material.

6. SEW

The soft, feathery material 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 compared to traditional cut and sew garment manufacturing which wastes up to 20% more fabric (excludes our t-shirts and baby garments which are cut and sew).

7. YOUR BOODY!

The end result is a naturally luxurious fabric that's silky soft and feels fabulous to wear.
