Bamboo fabric is lightweight and does not wear out easily. It is not at all delicate despite the soft qualities of the fabric. Designers are using it in almost any kind of wearing apparel that you can think of from baby clothing and diapers to designer evening wear.
It is antibacterial to some extent, making it a good choice for casual and sports related garments. Since it also wicks the moisture away from the skin, it can help you feel cool and dry in the heat of summer. In addition to its ability to wick moisture away from the skin, bamboo fabric can kill odour-causing bacteria. The antimicrobial properties of bamboo are nine times more effective against bacteria than chemical antimicrobial additives.
People who have sensitive skin or who are allergic to fabrics made from wool or hemp find that they can wear bamboo based fabrics without any problems. It is often compared to silk or cashmere because is it so soft and smooth. Clothing made from this fabric tends to be warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. This makes it a versatile option that is easy on the pocketbook as well as the environment.

Cotton is the purified fibre of the seed capsules of the cotton plant. Cotton can absorb about 20% of its own weight in moisture without feeling wet. It is pleasantly soft to wear, is permeable to air and actively breathes. It is highly resistant to friction and tearing.
