What is Bamboo
A member of the grass family, bamboo is a versatile plant that can be grown just about everywhere – except for the iciest of climes. Bamboo fabric can either be produced mechanically or chemically. In the mechanical process, the woody part is crushed and natural enzymes are used to break it into mush before the fibres are combed out and rolled. For the chemical process, the leaves and soft inner pith are crushed, soaked in liquid and reconstituted before being spun into yarn.Praised for being the world’s fastest-growing plant, bamboo can grow up to a meter per day. One Japanese species is said to have sprouted over 3 meters in a single day! As a grass, bamboo will easily regenerate after being cut, without the need for replanting.
