Let’s face it, bamboo clothing is pretty incredible. From wicking moisture from the body, resisting bacteria and odours. To thermo-regulating the temperature through its unique breathability. Bamboo fabric is a natural textile made from the pulp of the bamboo grass, the bamboo fiber is then made by pulping the bamboo grass until it separates into thin threads of fiber, which is then spun and dyed for weaving into cloth.
Bamboo fabric is similar to the softness of silk. Since the fibers are without chemical treatment, they are naturally smoother and rounder with no sharp spurs to irritate the skin, making bamboo fabric hypoallergenic and perfect for those who experience allergic reactions to other natural fibers such as wool or hemp.
Unlike many of the other fabrics, bamboo is extremely breathable. The cross-section of the bamboo fiber is covered with micro-gaps giving the fabric better moisture absorption and ventilation. As a result, it is able to keep the wearer almost two degrees cooler in the heat and noticeably warmer in the cold. Below are our current favourite bamboo clothing options at BAM.
This easy-to-wear wrap-style top will keep you looking good and feeling comfortable during classes and home practice sessions. Made with their ultralight ‘Air’ bamboo fabric, it features a fully stitched mock wrap V-neckline, soft shoulderline gathers and grown-on cap sleeves for a little arm coverage. The deep fitted waistline keeps it perfectly in place during your yoga and Pilates sessions or gym workouts. Looks fantastic over the Scoop-back Crop Top.
With bold contrast panels that sculpt and flatter, the leggings have a 7/8-leg length and a contoured regular-rise waistband that’s both comfortable and tum taming. The Enduro fabric makes them supportive, moisture managing and fully opaque for total body confidence in and outside the gym.
A fitness bra top like you’ve never worn before, the new Seamfree Crop Top uses seamfree technology to support without restriction. There are almost no seams to chafe or dig and the breathable lightweight compression fabric combines dynamic support with 360° stretch for supreme flexibility and shape retention. Contoured ribbing adds extra hold where needed, and the racer-back top has moisture managing benefits to keep you feeling dry. The ideal choice for Yoga, Pilates, Barre and other low-impact, movement flow exercises.
The 200gsm bamboo jersey is incredibly soft and comfy, wicks away perspiration and is kind to sensitive skin. The subtly scooped neckline and cute cap sleeves give a flattering, feminine look. And the longer-length body gives great bum coverage whilst lengthening and slimming your look. If only all clothes could be like this…
Nothing channels laidback style quite a like a shirt dress. With that subtly slubbed texture, the relaxed fit shirt dress looks like linen, but has a softer drape and feel, plus it’s moisture managing – so if a walk turns into a hike, or days out extend into evenings out, so much the better. Collarless style with button front, in-seam pockets, self-tie belt and stepped back hem with side splits.
