For those who are new to the Bamboo Towel market, be assured that the manufacturer is not adding to the disappearance of the giant pandas habitat. These towels are made from the fibers of the Moso bamboo which is not on the pandas menu. These particular bamboo textiles are highly sustainable and biodegradable. If you are worried about global warming and want to be eco-friendly, bamboo generates much more oxygen than equivalent types of trees. This helps to reduce levels of carbon dioxide in the air. It is also self-irrigating which means it uses less water than the equivalent cotton crops. The porous nature of bamboo fiber makes it breathable and extremely comfortable against the skin, so much so that some customers feel like they are being cradled in cashmere. Only bamboo is much more absorbent. Actually, this material is 60% more absorbent than cotton. Like silk and other natural fabric, bamboo is hypoallergenic. It is also naturally antimicrobial, stain, odor and germ resistant. Caring for your new Bamboo Towels is a breeze. The bamboo fiber is naturally soft and stain resistant and is easily cared for without the use of harsh detergents, fabric softeners and bleach. It can be more easily damaged by bleaching than other fabrics. Store-bought fabric softeners can hinder the natural properties and stain resistance. Another added benefit is that these towels repel odors so you do not have to worry about cancelling any unpleasant odor the towel may pick up. Take a look at all the available colors. There is certainly a color or shade that will compliment your bathroom décor. You can achieve that spa feeling with the luxury of these soft, absorbent towels. Worth noting is the fact that the bath towel is not skimpy but rather large and generous enough to wrap around.
