1. Where is your bamboo grown?

Our bamboo is grown in Sichuan province(Pandas' hometown)China. 

2. What part of the bamboo plant is used to generate fibres used in your products, and how is it processed?

The Bamboo is crushed and pulped and then its natural cellulose, which contains the bamboo 'kun', is extracted to make fibre.  The process is much like the way wood is crushed and pulped in the paper making process.  The viscose is regenerated into a fibre that's like cotton in appearance, but much, much softer.  It's then spun into yarn From the yarn, it's then knitted (or woven now as well) into fabric.   

Part of the processing to fibre is a multi-phase bleaching, using caustic soda.  However taken as an overall it's not a huge part of the bamboo story, in terms of all the other benefits, it's a small element.  Those being the way bamboo is grown (without fertilizers and pesticides, without the excessive watering needed for cotton, giving a yield that's 10 times that of cotton, per acre, allowing growth on hillsides and other marginal land, etc) Also, there are new developments coming online all the time, for example Modal, which is made in pretty much the same way, is now processed mechanically, so it seems only a matter of a short time before bamboo follows. Another process, using ionic liquids has been discovered by a team in Belfast, which is super low impact and actually biodegradeable.

3. How is the water absorbability comparing with cotton?

Bamboo absorbs water 3-4 times better than cotton.Bamboo fabric is a natural moisture wicking agent.  Moisture is taken from the body, on contact, and then instantly evaporates. Bamboo's ability to absorb water accounts for its capacity for rapid growth, which is also retained in fabric form. 

4. Are your products 100% bamboo fibre or is there cotton mixed in?

We can make our products in 100% bamboo fibre, as well as mixture with cotton.

5. Does it lose its special qualities after washing?

Bamboo fabric has been found to show no drop off in its antibacterial nature even after 50 washes.  Its massive water absorbency is best retained without the use of softeners. 

6. Do your bamboo products shrink?
Shrinkage is slightly higher in bamboo than cotton.  We give our products an extra wash during the dye process to keep shrinkage within normal standard.  We also build in a very small amount of extra material just for good measure. 
7. What about the pandas? Are you taking their natural habitats away from them?
In short, no!  That wouldn't be very good for an ethical brand, would it....  Our bamboo is planted and grown as a crop, so it's extra on top of what exists naturally.  As a general point, it's true that panda habitats have been shrinking over the years with general urban and other land use encroachment, but the Chinese Government is quite ernest in its desire to maintain what's left and the remaining giant bamboo forests are now far better protected.
